The first golf tournament at the new “The Hills Course”

The excellent weather, the maritime teams and the two new signature 18-hole courses, composed the impressive scenery for the games of this year’s tournament, which was also the 1st to be held on the new The Hills Course. The event’s new competition format found participants competing in a two-day shotgun scramble, with the first round taking place on Friday, September 9 at The Hills Course and the second on Saturday, September 10 at the International Olympic Academy Golf Course. The golfers competed in an idyllic landscape full of centuries-old olive trees with stunning views of the Ionian Sea, the historic Bay of Navarino and the picturesque port of Pylos. Accordingly, non-golfers attended a golf clinic on Saturday, September 10 at The Dunes Course.
