Golfbreaks.com Pro-Am a Great Success1 min read

Teams from across Europe enjoy Spanish tournament test

Professionals and amateurs from nine different countries recently enjoyed a three-day Pro-Am in Southern Spain which took in some of the best courses on the Continent.

While the rest of Europe was blanketed with snow, 14 Pro-Am teams took part in the event which was  organised by Golfbreaks.com, an Official Supplier to The PGA and the Official Golf Travel Company to the Confederation of Professional Golf.

After a first round played at the exclusive La Reserva course, the competitors had the pleasure of playing the world famous Valderrama, host course of the 1997 Ryder Cup. The signature par-five 17th duly lived up to its fearsome reputation, claiming many a victim throughout the day. The tournament was completed by a round at the striking Almenara course.

The Professional individual competition was jointly won by Peter Hansson of Sweden and Britain’s Matthew Barber (above). The leading pair both finished on a three-round total of 232, with Croatian Pro Miro Raic claiming third after finishing just one stroke behind. The Pro-Am competition was won by the German team, headed up by British PGA Pro Graeme Aspinall (below).

The response to the event from those who took part was overwhelmingly positive. Joint-winner, Matthew Barber, from Chelsfield Lakes Golf Centre, was quick to praise the choice of venues and the conditioning of the courses, as well as the “great organisation and management of the event by Golfbreaks.com.”

Next winter’s Pro-Am schedule has already been confirmed, with the event returning to Valderrama and La Reserva on February 7th-10th, 2013. A second tournament will take place at the prestigious PGA Catalunya a month later, on March 7th-10th, 2013.
