Frankfurt, Mai 2019:The fourth annual Messinia Pro-Am – attended this year by the likes of Hollywood star Bill Murray – will take place from February 19-22, 2020, at Costa Navarino, the prime golf destination in Greece.
The event – played on both of the multi-award-winning signature golf courses, The Dunes Course and The Bay Course – is limited to 50 teams, each of which comprises one PGA professional and three amateurs, and is a great way to launch the new golf season.
Sanctioned by the PGAs of Europe and held under the auspices of the PGAs of Greece and the Hellenic Golf Federation, the Messinia Pro-Am not only provides a memorable three-day golfing experience in a mild climate and unspoiled Mediterranean landscape, but also includes a fascinating and enjoyable programme of themed events and activities which showcase the region in all its glory.
The par-70, 5,422m, Robert Trent Jones Jr-designed The Bay Course overlooks the historic Bay of Navarino. It is surrounded by olive groves and will welcome golfers in June to a new earth-sheltered clubhouse, blending into the landscape and almost invisible to the eye. The course meanders through three distinct settings – seaside, canyon, and grove – to provide striking contrasts.
The par-71, 6,018m, Bernhard Langer and EGD-designed The Dunes Course offers spectacular sea and river views and incorporates links-style features in areas closest to the sea, while occasionally venturing into olive and fruit groves.
The event’s official travel partner is Athens-based Erasmus Conferences & Events S.A. and team registration – which is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis – will open soon.
One of the world’s leading sustainable destinations, Costa Navarino is renowned for its pristine coastal location, breathtaking landscape, cultural heritage, luxury hospitality and real estate. A commitment to the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility exist throughout its operation, as well as a desire to promote the entire region of Messinia, while protecting and preserving both its natural beauty and heritage.
