PGA Pros hail Golfbreaks.com Pro-Am event
March 22, 2011

Golfbreaks.com , Europe's largest golf travel company, hosted its second 2011 Pro-Am event at Emporda Golf Hotel and Resort in Costa Brava, Spain, where a host of teams from UK, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland and Italy battled for the top prize.

The Pro-Am competition, that ran from March 4th-6th, 2011, was won by David Smith, PGA Professional at Chadwell Springs Golf Club in Hertfordshire, backed up by team-mates Olly Brown (Brickendon Grange Golf Club), John Mac (East Herts Golf Club) and Steve Edwards (Herts Golf & Country Club)

The individual strokeplay prize in the three-round event was claimed jointly by PGA Professionals Jason Groat, of Denver Golf Club in Norfolk, and David Haines, of Brean Golf Club in Somerset.

On winning the team prize, David Smith commented: "The Golfbreaks.com Pro-Am was tremendous - the hotel and the course were both fantastic - and we would certainly like to play in another of the company's events. We had played the course before and I think our performance in the difficult weather conditions of the first round helped win us the top prize."

Jason Groat said: "Golfbreaks.com did a first-class job. The course was stunning, and the venue and hospitality, including the delicious food, simply fantastic. These types of event are fun to play in, and it was terrific to finish joint first. I very much look forward to playing in another Pro-Am in future."

Joint-individual winner David Haines added: "I thoroughly enjoyed it. The whole package, including the organisation and hospitality, was excellent and I think the shorter format is ideal for those with time constraints. This was my first experience of Golfbreaks.com and I would recommend the company to anyone."

Jim Long, Director of PGA Relations at Golfbreaks.com, added: "The latest Golfbreaks.com Emporda Golf Hotel and Resort Pro-Am event was another fantastic success. We had teams from all over Europe cross swords over the magnificent and challenging Forest and Links golf courses in Costa Brava."

Jim concluded: "This latest event further confirmed that our new three-round format is the perfect fit for short-haul overseas Pro-Ams and today's busy golfer. We are now greatly looking forward to the third Pro-Am scheduled for later this month at the La Cala Resort, also here in Spain."
