After three years of continuous success (2015-2017), and upon the demand of the Greek shipping community, the sponsors decided this year to extend its duration to a two-day tournament, which will take place at The Dunes Course and The Bay Coursein Costa Navarino, Messinia, Greece, on Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 30th of September 2018.
Eighty golfers, all leading executive professionals of the Greek shipping community, divided in twenty foursome teams will compete in the team competition on the 1stday of the tournament and an individual competition will take place on the 2ndday. Plenty of presents and give-aways will be distributed to all participants of the tournament, during the games and at the Award Ceremony special evening event which will be hosted at the PERO Restaurant, at Romanos Hotel of Costa Navarino.
Winning prizes will be awarded to the teams and individual golfers achieving 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, as well as to the players with the best shots for the «Longest Drive» and «Closest to the Pin» special categories.
Similar to the previous years, the «Greek Maritime Golf Event» will be supporting through fund raising the works of the «Captain Vassilis and Carmen Constantakopoulos» Foundation, a charitable non-profit private foundation, founded in 2011 to honor Captain Vassilis and Carmen Constantakopoulos. Its aim is to establish Messinia as a model for sustainable development, by supporting and promoting related projects.
The Foundation plans manages and finances programs related to research, education and support of local structures of Messinia. It trades in a wide range of areas related to rural development, society, culture and the environment by developing partnerships with institutions and with bodies in those fields.
The «Greek Maritime Golf Event» has established itself as an annual pole of attraction and a solid meeting point for the top executives of the Greek shipping community, who share the same love and passion for the sport of golf and for shipping.
