The fifth annual Messinia Pro-Am has been confirmed for November 24-27, 2021, and, for the first time, attendees will have the opportunity to play across three courses, including the brand new José María Olazábal-designed West Course at Navarino Hills Costa Navarino.
The 54-hole international event – which saw record breaking attendance in 2020 with more than 20 participating countries and 50 teams – has welcomed professional and celebrity golfers over the years, such as Bill Murray, Mike Tindall and Sepp Maier.
Sanctioned by the Confederation of Professional Golf and held under the auspices of the PGAs of Greece and the Hellenic Golf Federation, this year’s Messinia Pro-Am will feature a record 75 teams, with professionals competing for a €50,000 prize fund under the Messinian sun.
The four-day event also includes a programme of themed events and dinners.
Navarino Hills, named the ‘World’s Best New Golf Development’ at the 2020 World Golf Awards, stretches over 500 hectares of rugged natural terrain overlooking Navarino Bay and provides the ideal complement to the existing Dunes and Bay courses.
Designed by two-time Masters champion and Ryder Cup legend José María Olazábal, the fabulous new course overlooks the historic Bay of Navarino and the surrounding hills.
When the project is fully completed in spring 2022, the Mediterranean’s prime, sustainable destination will be in the enviable position of being able to offer its guests four signature 18-hole golf courses – all within a 13km radius.
The official carrier of the Messinia Pro-Am for the fifth consecutive year is AEGEAN Airlines, a member of Star Alliance, the global aviation alliance, which is a partner of Costa Navarino, the Confederation of Professional Golf (CPG) and PGA of Greece. Aegean offers special airline ticket prices for Messinia Pro-Am participants.
