Annual Congress and International Team Championship Heading to Glorious Gloria3 min read

Posted on: 9th Oct 2014

The 2014 PGAs of Europe Annual Congress and International Team Championship (ITC) dual-event is heading across the Mediterranean to its new home of Turkey and the stunning Belek-based Gloria Hotels & Resorts from the 8th – 11th December.

The Annual Congress will celebrate its 25th Anniversary this year and has traditionally been hosted in Spain and Portugal. A new three-year agreement with Gloria Hotels & Resorts means the Annual Congress and ITC have a new home in one of the fastest growing golfing regions on the planet.

“We are very excited to be entering into a three-year partnership with Gloria Hotels & Resorts as ‘Home of the PGAs of Europe Annual Congress and International Team Championship’, as well as a ‘Preferred Venue of the PGAs of Europe’,” explained PGAs of Europe Chief Executive, Ian Randell.

“The hosting of the Annual Congress and ITC further cement the relationship we have built up with them over the years and we are sure the comprehensive facilities at Gloria Hotels & Resorts will make for a great week for both Congress delegates and ITC competitors.”

Gloria Golf Resort has also played host to the PGAs of Europe-Sanctioned Beko Classic multiple times and the 2014 edition of the event will also take place the week before the Congress (4th – 6th December).

“On behalf of Gloria Hotels and Resorts I would like to state that it is a great pleasure to enter into a partnership with the PGAs of Europe, where we will be the host for the PGAs of Europe Annual Congress and International Team Championship,” explained Öznur Özdemir Özaltin, CEO of Gloria Hotels & Resorts.

“Over the years the Gloria brand has hosted several international events, thus, this partnership will further enhance our position as one of the leading hotels and golf complexes in Europe. “Over the coming years, we look forward to hosting the PGAs of Europe’s members and guests and working together with the PGAs of Europe in helping to promote golf in Turkey and in Europe in general”.

The Annual Congress is the yearly opportunity for presidents and CEOs of national PGAs, along with leaders from Federations and other significant golfing bodies from across the continent, to meet and discuss the state of play within their respective territories, as well as learn and share ideas with each other alongside fantastic speakers from not only the world of golf but wider industries as well.

The ITC will see teams from across the PGAs of Europe 36 member countries play a 72-hole strokeplay competition across Gloria Golf Resort’s New Course with the best two individual scores each day from the team of three counting towards the overall team score. Competitors will be looking to emulate the 2013 winners, the PGA of Holland, who took the title in last year’s event.
