Confederation of Professional Golf Annual Congress & ITC Return to Gloria2 min read

Posted on: 23rd Sep 2015

Gloria Hotels & Resorts in Belek, Turkey, will once again host two key events returning from 8th to 11th December 2015, in the form of the Annual Congress and the International Team Championship (ITC).

Representatives from the Association’s 36 Member Countries, along with leaders from Federations and other significant golfing bodies from across the continent, will meet and discuss the state of play within their respective territories, as well as learn and share ideas with each other alongside fantastic speakers from not only the world of golf but wider industries as well.


Then, running simultaneously to the Congress, the ITC will pit teams from across the Confederation of Professional Golf’s Member PGAs against each other across 72-holes at Gloria Golf Club with the best two individual scores each day from the team of three counting towards the overall team score. 2014 winners, Scotland, will look to make it three wins in four years and repeat their 10-shot victory over the rest of teams when they return.


“Our partnership with Gloria has already shown to be hugely effective from both sides,” said Ian Randell, Confederation of Professional Golf Chief Executive. “The resort offers superb accommodation, extensive meeting facilities, great golf courses and offers plenty of variety for both our delegates and players. With such rich surroundings to our flagship event, it is no wonder our guests value the experience greatly and are looking forward to returning for a second year.”

“We are very pleased to be hosting the Confederation of Professional Golf’s Annual Congress again this year,“ explained Öznur Özdemir Özaltin, CEO of Gloria Hotels & Resorts. “We are especially excited to relive the International Team Championship, which is a key part of the Congress week. Last year the Scots took the glory – we can’t wait to see who will win this time around!”

With Gloria’s fantastic Serenity Resort acting as the base for both events, the week will conclude with a gala award dinner bringing Congress delegates and ITC competitors together in celebration of the Association’s 25th Anniversary, the annual award winners and the ITC Champions.
