Prominent sports personalities join Messinia Pro-Am at Costa Navarino
One of YouTube’s most popular golf coaches and a former Rugby World Cup winner are among the participants in next month’s prestigious – and completely sold out – Messinia Pro-Am, at Costa Navarino, the prime sustainable golf destination in the Mediterranean.
The third Messinia Pro-Am – a four-day PGAs of Europe-sanctioned event, in association with the PGA of Greece and the Hellenic Golf Federation – takes place on the Dunes and Bay courses at the destination in Greece’s Peloponnese, and is drawing in professionals, celebrities and amateurs from across the world.
They are attracted not just by the world-class facilities and breathtaking seaside landscape on offer but also, in the professionals’ case, by a €30,000 prize pot. And celebrities confirmed for the event include England’s Rugby World Cup-winner Mike Tindall, who played more than 70 times for his country and captained the team on five occasions, and respected golf coach Peter Finch
He said: “I’m very excited to play in Greece for the first time, especially at such an incredible looking venue. To compete in the event, soak up the atmosphere and capture some awesome content is something I’m very much looking forward to.”
Participants will be able to enjoy the mild climate of the region, the unspoilt Mediterranean landscape and play golf surrounded by centuries old olive groves and rolling hills overlooking the Ionian Sea.
Event partners include AEGEAN Airlines, a member of Star Alliance, which is the official airline of the tournament, and Erasmus, the official travel partner, which is coordinating and ensuring a smooth registration and accommodation process.
One of the world’s most sustainable destinations, Costa Navarino is renowned for its pristine coastal location, breathtaking landscape, cultural heritage, luxury hospitality and real estate. A commitment to the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility exist throughout its operation, as well as a desire to promote the entire region of Messinia, while protecting and preserving both its natural beauty and heritage.
