PGA National Sultan golf course review

Europe’s largest pro-am set to return in 2022 with huge prizes at stake

Ending with a star-studded Grand Final at PGA National Turkey, the 2022 St. James's Place National Pro-Am has some fabulous prizes up for grabs
 

It’s back! The PGA National Pro-Am Championship will again provide an outstanding opportunity for professional and amateurs to win Europe’s largest Pro-Am events when it returns in 2022

On offer for amateurs who win their club qualifier and then successfully partner their PGA Professional to victory in one of 12 Regional Finals is an all-expenses paid trip to Turkey for the Grand Final.

The PGA have welcomed St. James’s Place – one of the UK’s leading providers of financial, investment and tax planning advice – as the new title sponsor and the event will now be known as the St James’s Place National Pro-Am until 2025.

Thousands of golfers from across the UK and Ireland are expected to compete with Grand Final returning to the prestigious PGA National Turkey at Antalya Golf Club.

The five-star venue in Belek will welcome the 12 Regional Final winners, who will compete over 36 holes on the PGA Sultan course to determine the St. James’s Place National Pro-Am winners.

Richard Barker, PGA Executive Director – Business Development, said: “We are thrilled with the work that St. James’s Place are doing to support the financial wellbeing of our members and to now extend that into a title sponsorship of one our most prestigious and long-standing events is a fantastic step for both parties.

“This is a very unique event in that it allows amateur golfers the opportunity to team up with their local PGA Professional and represent their club in a national event. We look forward to this year’s tournament and I wish each and every competitor the best of luck.”

Paul Ainslie, Head of Partnerships at St. James’s Place added: “We couldn’t be happier with the opportunity we have to help The PGA re-establish and grow this fantastic tournament over the next four years.

“We have some exciting plans and we hope golf clubs and amateur players across the UK and Ireland embrace the opportunity. We are also extremely proud that the tournament now places men and women on an equal footing and we strongly encourage clubs to consider how the opportunity is promoted to their female members.”

The St. James’s Place National Pro-Am is open to both male and female amateurs aged 18. The top five PGA Professionals will earn a share of an increased prize fund of £46,000, while the top three winning amateurs will win fantastic prizes.

The line up of Regional Final venues starts at Sherwood Forest on July 25, and finishes at Kings Hill Golf Club, in Kent, on September 28.
