Costa Navarino in the Peloponnese is set to welcome the 2nd Aegean Messinia Pro-Am this autumn, headlining the golfing calendar at the Mediterranean’s sustainably-driven destination. After last year’s successful debut, the second edition of the international event will take place during September 13-17.
Participants will have the chance to enjoy the sunny Messinian skies, mild temperatures and spectacular sea views, while playing across three of the destination’s signature courses – The Dunes Course, The Bay Course and the International Olympic Academy Golf Course, named as the ‘World’s Best New Golf Course’ at the 2022 World Golf Awards.
Set amidst a lush landscape with centuries-old olive trees and verdant hills, each course offers a different challenge, while its development and operation are aligned with the destination’s sustainable practices.
Sanctioned by the Confederation of Professional Golf and supported by the Hellenic Golf Federation and the PGA of Greece, the Aegean Messinia Pro-Am will feature a maximum of 75 teams, with each team comprising of one professional and three amateurs. The tournament’s total prize fund will reach 70,000 euros.
