The resort has joined forces with the PGA in Scotland, to run a four day event over all three of its high quality courses
Golfers from around the world will have the chance to tee up in an exciting new pro-am tournament being played across all three of Gleneagles Hotel’s courses.
The tournament, which has been organised by the PGA in Scotland and the Ryder Cup resort, will be staged from 5-8 July 2016 over the King’s, Queen’s and PGA Centenary courses.
The event will be open to teams of four, comprising three amateurs and one PGA Professional, and will have a prize fund of £18,000.
Gary Silcock, Gleneagles’ director of golf, commented: “Competitors will have the chance to play two of James Braid’s classic courses – The King’s and Queen’s – as well as the PGA Centenary course, the venue for 2014’s Ryder Cup matches. And afterwards, they can enjoy some warm Scottish hospitality in one of the UK’s most iconic luxury hotels.
“The fact that it’s taking place the week before the Open Championship at Troon means it’s great timing to make the trip.”
Shona Malcolm, secretary of the PGA in Scotland, added: “This is an exciting addition to the PGA in Scotland’s tournament calendar for 2016.
“The Gleneagles Hotel is instantly recognisable throughout the world, and what better place to welcome visitors to Scotland, the home of golf. We look forward to working in partnership to make The Gleneagles International Pro-Am a “must play” event for golf fanatics from around the globe.”
Entry to the tournament costs £7,500 for a team of four, and includes four nights’ accommodation per player; drinks reception and welcome dinner; packed lunch on tournament days; four rounds of golf; celebration dinner and prize presentation.
