The Algarve Pro Golf Tour is proud to announce a partnership with the Portuguese Golf Federation and the PGA of Portugal that allows us to offer a European Tour Start in the Open de Portugal 2017 to be held at NAU Morgado Golf & Resorts on May 11th to 14th to the winner of an Order of Merit.
The Order of Merit will be called, “Race to Open de Portugal”, starting at Swing 3 and finishing at the end of Swing 7, where the Winner will get an invitation to play in the Open de Portugal with a €500,000.00 prize-fund.
The “Race to Open de Portugal” will be run on a Points based system so as to reward the player who is the most consistent over the 5 Swings.
The Open de Portugal is now back on the European Tour schedule after an absence of seven years following Thomas Bjorn´s win at Penha Longa in 2010.
This New Year promises to be a very significant one for The Algarve Pro Golf Tour, the Team believes that the commitment and hard work will bring more BIG things in the near future but for now, we are honoured and most thankful for being able to provide this great prize to our players and hopefully contribute to their search for the dream of having a successful professional career in golf.
