Costa Navarino presents the 3rd edition of Messinia Pro-Am, 20-23 February 2019. The international golf tournament will welcome a total of 30 teams, while professionals will be competing for a total prize fund of 30,000 euros.
Among this year’s participants, a global sports figure will be joining Messinia Pro-Am: Former international rugby player Mike Tindall that represented England 75 times and 5 times as captain over a 17 year career.
The tournament will take place at the award-winning golf courses of Costa Navarino, which has been selected by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) as the “European Golf Resort of the Year 2017”, in a landscape full of centuries-old olive trees with stunning views of the Ionian Sea and the historic Bay of Navarino. The two signature 18-hole golf courses, The Dunes Course and The Bay Course will once again host professional and amateur golfers, for a four-day event filled with unique experiences both on and off the course.
Registrations for the 30 participating teams, will continue through the event’s official website here until January 18, 2019.
Messinia Pro-Am 2019 golfers will be able to get real-time updates on scores both at team and individual levels through the GolfBox live score service.
The 30 participating teams (comprising a professional and three amateurs) will compete with each other at The Dunes Course on Thursday, February 21, The Bay Course on Friday, February 22, and The Dunes Course on Saturday, February 23, 2019. The pros will compete in a 54-hole Strokeplay individual competition at the tournament.
The 3rd International Messinia Pro-Am tournament will further enhance the work of SOS Children’s Villages Greece, a member of SOS Children’s Villages International, that creates families for children in need.
