Legends Tour Returns to Greece: A Golf Spectacle at Costa Navarino

Costa Navarino Golf Course

The Legends Tour is making a comeback to Greece for the Costa Navarino Legends Tour Trophy, and it’s a big deal.

This is the first major pro golf tournament in Greece in over two decades, and it’s set to take place from June 7-9, 2024.

Hosted at the beautiful Costa Navarino in Greece’s southwest Peloponnese, this event marks the first Legends Tour event in continental Europe for the 2024 season.

What’s really exciting about this tournament is that it will be played across two of Costa Navarino’s stunning 18-hole golf courses.

Round one kicks off on June 7 at The Bay Course, a par 71 gem designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., with incredible seaside views and unique landscapes that weave through the area.

Then, rounds two and three take place on June 8 and 9 at the International Olympic Academy Golf Course, a breathtaking par 72 designed by two-time Masters champion José María Olazábal.

This course, located in the Navarino Hills, offers spectacular views of the Ionian Sea and the surrounding countryside.

The Costa Navarino Legends Tour Trophy isn’t just about great golf; it’s also about star power.

Expect some big names, including three Major Champions and eight of the top ten from the previous season’s Legends Tour Order of Merit.

The Legends Tour CEO, Phil Harrison, is pumped about the event, pointing out that Costa Navarino is an incredible place with top-notch golf courses and five-star accommodations, including The Romanos, W Costa Navarino, Mandarin Oriental, and The Westin Resort Costa Navarino.

David Ashington, the General Manager at Costa Navarino Golf, couldn’t be happier to host this event.

He said it’s a thrill and an honour to be the first venue in Greece to host a major golf tournament in 23 years.

With four signature golf courses and a variety of luxury hotels, Costa Navarino is ready to impress players, their families, and golf fans from all over the world.

So if you’re into golf, this is the event to watch. It’s got everything: fantastic courses, a beautiful setting, and a lineup of top players.

Plus, Costa Navarino is more than just golf—there’s a whole range of activities and experiences waiting to be discovered. It’s a perfect way to kick off the Legends Tour season in Europe.
