DE VERE is set to host a number of new events on the 2014 PGA EuroPro Tour across its renowned portfolio of luxurious golf resorts, as part of a strategic partnership to align The De Vere Group with one key development - Tours for young ambitious professionals.
De Vere’s presence on the 2014 calendar will begin as early as the 26th March, when the acclaimed tournament venue, De Vere Slaley Hall, will play host to the all-important First Stage Qualifying School.
This will be followed by three brand new tournaments to be hosted at other flagship De Vere resorts: The Belfry; and The Carrick on Loch Lomond; as well as a full tournament back at De Vere Slaley Hall later in the season.
De Vere resorts have long been recognised as some of the UK’s finest tournament venues, having hosted over 20 European Tour, European Senior Tour, and European Ladies Tour events, as well as the prestigious PGA Cup matches in 2013 and 2009, across the impressive portfolio.
Keith Pickard, Regional Golf Director – De Vere, is excited about the new partnership: “At De Vere, we are always looking to further our involvement in the growth of the game, and felt that this was the perfect opportunity to continue our support for young up-and-coming amateurs and professionals."
We have a longstanding history of support for budding Tour professionals and recognise the EuroPro Tour as one of the key development Tours across Europe and its importance as a stepping stone for young golfers trying to make their way onto the global stage."
Daniel Godding, Director of Operations – PGA EuroPro Tour, echoes Keith’s excitement: “We are always looking to align ourselves with the best and provide the finest venues for our members.
"We already have a number of impressive locations on our schedule, but the addition of these three first-class De Vere facilities just helps to further enhance the quality of our tournament calendar in 2014."
