The countdown to the 2nd Messinia Pro-Am tournament at Costa Navarino has begun. Taking place 21-24 February 2018, it has already received extensive interest globally.
Each of the 50 teams participating will consist of one professional and three amateur golfers who will compete in three rounds at the two 18-hole signature golf courses. The Dunes Course and The Bay Course are set amidst the eternal olive trees overlooking the stunning views of the Ionian Sea and the Bay of Navarino.
The total prize fund of the 2nd Messinia Pro Am is €50,000 and is the 2nd biggest fund in golf tournaments in Europe. Messinia Pro-Am supports a charity cause, the SOS Children’s Villages that create families for children in need, help them shape their own futures and share in the development of their communities. SOS Children’s Villages support children who are orphaned, abandoned or whose families are unable to care for them and enable children to live according to their own culture and religion, and to be active members of the community.
This year Costa Navarino is proud to have been selected by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) as the ‘European Golf Resort of the Year 2017’. The Messinia Pro-Am will also involve a rich programme of events and entertainment, including thematic gastronomy nights.
Registrations are open via the event’s official website, where special accommodation packages at The Westin Resort Costa Navarino are available as well.
