Dateline: 19th May 2016
Source: Desert Springs Golf Club
Subject: PGA EuroPro Tour
Location: Desert Springs Resort
Title: PGA EuroPro Tour invites you to be part of the Tour Championship

We announced in an earlier Newsflash that Desert Springs Resort & Golf Club had been selected to host this years season-ending Tour Championship of the PGA EuroPro Tour for the second consecutive year 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.


During the event held in 2015, the support and willingness of Desert Springs Members & Owners to give their time, to participate as volunteers and contribute to the success of the event was overwhelming.

The PGA (Professional Golfers Association) now wishes to invite volunteers to assist during the event that will feature some of the best professional golfers in Europe.

The duties to be carried out by those willing volunteers cover different areas that include:

Starters for 1st Tee: 2 Volunteers on Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th and Friday 21st October.

Live Scoring on the course: 6 Volunteers located every 3 holes on Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th and Friday 21st October.

On Course Leaderboard: 3 Volunteers on Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th and Friday 21st October.

Carry Boards: 4 Volunteers for the final four groups on Friday 21st October.

Ball Spotters: Additional Volunteers to help ball spot.

In the case of achieving an over subscribed number of volunteers, split shifts can be arranged to help ease the workload and cater for all who wish to become involved within the event.

The PGA will host a volunteers meeting before or after the Pro-Am on Tuesday 18th October to ensure a full briefing can be conducted of the responsibilities of all volunteers.

In appreciation and recognition for the assistance provided by the volunteers, each volunteer shall receive a polo shirt and cap as uniform and lunch each day.


We wish to encourage those of you that are interested in the opportunity of watching some of the best professional golfers in Europe from ‘inside the ropes’ to complete the Volunteer Form attached and return it to the Golf Reception in the Clubhouse or alternatively please contact Desert Springs Golf Services Manager, Kirk Lovell directly.
