Dateline: 12th August 2016
Source: Desert Springs Golf Club
Subject: EuroPro Tour Championship
Location: Desert Springs Resort
Title: 2016 PGA EuroPro Tour Championship Itinerary
     

We announced in an earlier Newsflash that Desert Springs Resort & Golf Club had been selected for the second consecutive year to host this years season-ending Tour Championship of the PGA EuroPro Tour between Wednesday 19th – Friday 21st October 2016.

 

The Tour Championship will be filmed for a two-hour highlights package to air on Sky Sports in the UK in November, and on networks around the world including Fox International across Asia, Fox Sports Australia, Fox Sports in Turkey, Greece, Malta, Cyprus and StarHub in Singapore. The Tour     attracts a sizable global television audience, reaching 250 million homes worldwide, which ensures an impressive level of exposure that will allow for the resort to continue to grow in terms of its reputation for quality, a factor of benefit and prestige to the resort, its members, property owners and the local area.

 

Only the top 60 golfers on the tour’s ‘Race To Desert Springs’ Order of Merit qualify to play the Tour Championship, which is scheduled to provide a €120,000 prize fund.

 

We want to give our property owners and members as much notice as possible of the programme of events, enabling them to plan their holidays and golf accordingly. Please see below the confirmed schedule for the 2016 PGA EuroPro Tour Championship.
