CZECH PGA TOUR 2016 IN ROPICE

After last year’s successful tournament of professionals within our Top Golf Tour Ropice, we can once again look forward to seeing the best players in the Czech Republic. It will be great to watch them play again on our well-maintained and quality Ropice golf course. The ROPICE GOLF TROPHY 2016 - Czech PGA Tour will be held on July 24 - 26, 2016.

There is plenty to look forward to, as was confirmed by Daniel Waclawek, manager and the main organiser of the Czech PGA Tour in Ropice. There would be no such event this year without his contribution.  

First of all, I would very much like to thank all our business partners. I am pleased that we can host such a prestigious tournament again this year. The prize money is the same as last year, i.e. CZK 300,000; the winner gets CZK 60,000. The best of you will fight not only for this amazing prize, but also for points in the overall ranking.

We have thought about the amateurs as well. As well as spectating, the amateur golfers can enjoy the opportunity to experience professional golf first-hand.

How?

On July 24, 2016, the PRO – AM tournament will take place. The amateur golfers can play in a joint flight with one professional. The popular Texas Scramble, which comprises 4-person teams, will create a great show, full of interesting situations. You will see pros in action, dealing with different situations on the course. You can be sure that you will get some good advice and learn new things. 

On July 25 – 26, 2016, the two-round tournament of professionals will be held. Spectators can come and see the top pros, as well as a few players from our club. We will definitely keep our fingers crossed for them.

Immediately after the start of the last flight of professionals on July 25, 2016, the amateur tournament will kick off. Recreational players will have the opportunity to play under the same conditions and on the same perfectly prepared course as the pros. The tournament was a huge success last year and the players really enjoyed it.

How long did it take to prepare such a great tournament?

We started preparing this year tournament when the last shot was played one year ago. It is a very expensive project, so we had to address our business partners as soon as possible. We benefited a lot from last year’s event as it proved to be very successful according to all the reviews and feedbacks. This helped us during our negotiations with our partners. 

It seems that Třinec (and its surroundings) is slowly becoming a popular sports centre in this region …

That's right! A tennis event – the Davis Cup - took place here a week ago followed by the Golf PGA Tour. It is true that everyone in our region is into some sport, which is great.

The start of the tournament is at 8am. You are cordially invited!
