Glorious Gloria Set to Host Annual Congress & ITC for Third Time2 min read

Posted on: 13th Jan 2017

Gloria Hotels & Resorts in Belek, Turkey, will again host the Confederation of Professional Golf’s flagship Annual Congress and International Team Championship (ITC) events from 17th to 20th January.

The Annual Congress is the Association’s yearly opportunity to bring together representatives from its 36 Member Country PGAs all under one roof to meet with each other to discuss and share ideas, progress and various ways to advance their organisations and golf in general.

The ITC tournament then runs alongside the Congress in which teams from across the Confederation of Professional Golf’s Member Countries battle it out over 72 holes on Gloria Golf Club’s New Course, with the best two individual scores each day from the team of three counting towards the overall team score.

The tournament is split into the main Championship field and a secondary event in which small and emerging Member PGAs compete for the ITC Shield.

“Gloria has been an excellent host for our Annual Congress and ITC,” said Confederation of Professional Golf Chief Executive, Ian Randell.  “This is the third year that they have hosted our flagship event and it will no doubt be another successful year.

“The facilities on offer at Gloria are second-to-none and our delegates and ITC competitors always have a great experience and enjoy visiting the resort.  We are also looking forward to making use of the remarkable Gloria Sports Arena facility that we know has hosted medal-winning Olympians and various different successful sporting teams since it opened.”

With Gloria’s fantastic Serenity Resort acting as the base for both events, along with Gloria Golf Club and Gloria Sports Arena, the week will conclude with the Gala Awards Dinner supported by Rolex, bringing Congress delegates and ITC competitors together in celebration of the annual award winners and the ITC Champions.
