“New Decade! More Passion!” – AEGEAN Assembles for Costa Navarino2 min read


Posted on: 14th Jun 2016

A 63-team strong field of competitors will assemble next week as the Aegean Airlines Pro-Am returns for its 11th edition from 22-26 June, and includes a hugely competitive lineup of Professionals from across Europe.

Defending Champion and European Tour Professional, Jake Roos, returns to Costa Navarino in Greece to defend his hard-fought 2015 win. Roos dominated throughout the week but was chased down by three-time champion, Nicolo Gaggero (PGA of Italy), who will also return hoping to make it a record fourth Aegean win.

Ladies European Tour Professional, Carly Booth, will make her first appearance at the Aegean Airlines Pro-Am looking to battle it out for her share of the €70,000 prize fund.  Booth is a two-time winner on the LET with victories at the 2012 Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open presented by EventScotland and 2012 Deutsche Bank Ladies Swiss Open.

Three-time European Tour Winner, Ryder Cup Player and PGA of Great Britain & Ireland Professional, Steven Richardson, will also join the field.  Richardson competed for Team Europe in the 1991 “War on the Shore” at Kiawah Island, earning two points against the United States in what was a narrow loss for the Europeans.

2016 Mercedes-Benz International Pro-Am Winner and PGA of Austria Member, Georg Schultes, will join the line-up having spent the early part of 2016 playing on the PGA Tour China.

PGA of Greece Professional, Themis Ginis, and his amateurs John Paraschis, Yannis Criticos, and Nikos Koulis, will return as defending Team Pro-Am Champions and will do their best to repeat last year’s performance across the 36-hole team event.

Past Aegean Airlines Pro-Am Champions Liam Bond (PGA of GB&I, 2006), Henrik Engdahl (PGA of Greece, 2007), Paul Nilbrink (PGA of Norway, 2009), Lee Rinker (PGA of America, 2010) and Zeke Martinez (PGA of Italy, 2012) also return each looking to repeat their victories.

After the Pro-Am’s successful 10th anniversary event in 2015, this year’s edition sees the tournament enter its second decade of operation and continues to grow in stature, and will again take place at Costa Navarino in the beautiful Messenia region of Greece.

Known widely for its quality both on and off the golf course, the tournament will see Teams come together to compete over 54 holes at the resort’s Dunes and Bay Courses, whilst enjoying fabulous entertainment at the various après-golf events throughout the tournament week.
