The 5th Aegean Airlines Pro-Am, staged in a glorious new home and with a revised format, is set to become a huge attraction for PGA professionals and their amateur partners following the almost unprecedented restrictions of a long, frozen winter across much of Europe and beyond.
Starved of competition and, in some cases even the opportunity to practice, for six months or more, the magnet of playing at the exciting Grecian location of Costa Navarino, Messinia, in the southwest Peloponnese, one of the most unspoiled and breathtaking seaside landscapes in the Mediterranean, will be irresistible to many intending contestants.
Having grown in prestige and popularity during its previous four years, first on the island of Crete for two years, and last year on the Greek mainland at Porto Carras, the Aegean Airlines Pro-Am of 2010, has amassed a whole army of devotees who will wish to join in the tournament on June 3-5.
This year the format will comprise of 36 holes as a pro-am on the challenging Dunes Course, June3/4, followed by a third round of professionals only on June 5, thereby enabling them to make an eighteen-hole bid for the highest place possible on the individual leaderboard. The winner will take home a cheque for €7,000.
Extending over 130 hectares of gently sloping hillside, Navarino Dunes is a stunningly beautiful location, richly endowed by nature, the site overlooks a magnificent sandy beach that stretches for over 1 km, washed by the warm clear blue waters of the Ionian Sea.
World-class amenities include a full-service conference centre, a large spa centre, a wide choice of dining venues, plus a range of leisure facilities and limitless opportunities for indoor and outdoor pursuits.
