Portugal’s Penina to Host CPG’s Annual Congress and International Team Championship2 min read


Posted on: 7th Nov 2019

From 02 – 05 December 2019, the Confederation of Professional Golf [CPG] Annual Congress and International Team Championship [ITC] will descend upon Portugal’s Algarve region, when Penina Hotel & Golf Resort hosts the events for the first time.

Located on the outskirts of Portimao, 45 minutes from Faro airport and two hours from the country’s capital Lisbon, Penina Hotel & Golf Resort provides an idyllic location to host the series of seminars, presentations and delegate activities that are synonymous with the Annual Congress.

Chief Executive of the CPG, Ian Randell, gave comment on the news: “We are very excited to be returning to the Algarve for our Annual Congress and International Team Championship this year.

“Penina’s five-star hotel and golf course will provide an exceptional experience for our Delegates and Competitors. We are thrilled to be working with the team at Penina in delivering what will be another exciting Congress, sharing knowledge across our membership and advancing our Collaboration & Digitalisation Project in conjunction with them.”

Penina’s 18-hole championship golf course, dubbed ‘The Home of Portugal Golf’ will also offer an enticing stage for the ITC. In its 31st year, the tournament provides some of the CPG’s Member Country PGA’s best PGA Professionals with the opportunity to represent their country in a team format.

Chief Operations Officer for JJW Hotels & Resorts, Ruben Paula, said: “It is a great honour to host the CPG’s Annual Congress and ITC at Penina Hotel & Golf Resort. Holding events of this scale requires extensive facilities of high quality, so Penina’s offering of championship golf and high-end hospitality means this will undoubtedly be an enjoyable week for the delegates and competitors alike.”

In combination, the Annual Congress and ITC, as well the Annual Gala Awards Supported by Rolex, consistently highlight the CPG’s Educational and Tournament schedule every year, and are sure to be another successful version of the events when they returns to Portugal’s Algarve region.
