Costa Navarino, located in Messinia in the Peloponnese, on February 21-24, 2018, will organize and host the second international golf tournament Messinia Pro-Am, which will feature athletes from all over the world.

According to an announcement, the tournament is expected to attract 50 golf teams with professionals and “aficionados” from all over the world. The total prize is 50,000 euros, making it the second highest to be offered in a European tournament.
The destination’s multi-awarded signature golf courses “The Dunes Course” and “The Bay Course” will offer an unparalleled golf experience with views of the seaside Messinian landscape, the organizer said in an announcement.
Alongside an impressive golf spectacle, the event will also provide a program full of events and entertainment for attendees, including gastronomy themed nights.
The ProAm is sanctioned by the PGAs of Europe and held under the auspices of the PGAs of Greece, the Hellenic Golf Federation and the Hellenic Olympic Academy.
The Costa Navarino was selected by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) as the “European Golf Resort of the Year 2017”.
