Few hours left before Costa Navarino welcomes the 3rd International Messinia Pro-Am golf tournament
Costa Navarino is eagerly anticipating the 3rd international Messinia Pro-Am golf tournament which initiates on Wednesday, 20 February. The tournament is expected to last three days and give the opportunity to amateur, professional and senior golf players to hone their skills, receive awards and participate at nights in thematic events with a touch of Hollywood flavour.
On Wednesday, 20th February, the event participants will join a formal training session in either of the two 18-hole golf courses of Costa Navarino, the smaller Bay Course and the larger Dunes Course, respectively. The day will close with a formal reception entitled Never on Sunday.
On Thursday, 21st February, the first round of tournament semi-finals will take place in the Dunes Course. The second round will ensue a day later, Friday, 22nd February at the Bay Course. A themed event called Mamma Mia will close the second day’s proceedings. The Mamma Mia event will incorporate a charity bowling game, entitled A Good Cause to Strike. Participants will test their bowling skills with each strike contributing a corresponding fee. The sum total will be donated for charity purposes to SOS Greece Children’s Villages. SOS Children’s Villages specialise on the treatment from early childhood of the abandoned and orphaned children. The organisation may also host children living under conditions of violence and/or poverty. The organisation provides shelter to all these children, who are educated and acquire the necessary skills to become fully-independent adults later in their lives. Additional online donations may be given to this cause by clicking on the following link: Charity – Messinia Pro Am.
The last day, Saturday, 23rd February, will conclude the golf competition with the final round being hosted at the Dunes Course. The event will draw to a close with a Buena Vista formal dinner during which a Prize Giving ceremony will award the three-day champions. The winning ceremony will feature Peter Finch and Iona Stephen as presenters, both former award-winning British golf professionals.
The 3rd Messinia Pro-Am golf tournament is hosted in Costa Navarino’s state-of-art premises and supported by the Professional Golf Associations in Europe and Greece (PGAs) and the Hellenic Golf Federation.
