Costa Navarino in Greece will play host to its fourth Aegean Airlines Pro-Am when the tournament returns from the 11th – 14th June 2014 for the 9th edition of the Professional-Amateur event.
The hugely popular Pro-Am which is now an established favourite on the PGAs of Europe calendar will see a limited number of 60 Professionals and their teams will compete across 54 holes of golf on the Navarino Dunes & Bay courses at the fabulous Greek resort. The Pro-Am will again be competed over the first 36 holes after which Professionals and Amateurs split for the final round where the Professionals battle it out for the individual prize fund of €70,000 and amateurs take part in the Aegean Cup.
The 2013 Pro-Am team honours went to the PGA of Italy’s Akim Hassan and his team with a 177 point (-33) total for the week, whilst the individual Professional tournament was won by the PGA of Italy’s, Nicolo Gaggero (pictured third left). The Italian’s four-under par total at Costa Navarino was enough to take the winner’s cheque for €7,000 ahead of the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s, Liam Bond, on two-under par.
Gaggero will be looking to do a Costa Navarino Aegean Airlines Pro-Am treble having also taken the individual Professional honours back in 2011 when the tournament first visited the Bay and Dunes courses at the club.
