Now in its third year at Pravets Golf & Spa resort, the Championship is firmly established as the No. 1 individual playing target on the PGAs of Europe tournament schedule and the top competitors from each national will qualify to play.
The championship boasts a €60,000 prize fund and will be contested by an elite field of 60 professionals from the 39 member countries who will qualify through their national PGA Championships. The event is a 72-hole stroke play format and will be accompanied by a post-event Pro-Am tournament.
