The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour is delighted to announce pentahotels as the title sponsor of the pentahotels Championship at Caversham Heath Golf Club this August.
pentahotels represents a new generation of hotels. Known for its unique interior design and “neighbourhood” feel, the lifestyle brand stands for true innovation in the industry’s 4-star segment.
With 28 hotels across seven countries on two continents, pentahotels offers individual and business travellers comfort and style in a relaxed atmosphere. The hallmark of the hotel chain is the pentalounge – a combination of lounge, bar, café and reception – that stands out with its “living room” look and feel.
The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour makes its debut at Caversham Heath this August 10-12. The Tour is Europe’s leading development tour, and the European Tour’s satellite in the UK and Ireland.
The pentahotels Championship will carry a £50,000 prize fund with the winner taking home £10,000.
Offering direct access to the Challenge Tour through the final Order of Merit, HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour players will compete for over £800,000 of prize money in 2016, with the top five golfers at the end of the season awarded a category on the 2017 Challenge Tour.
Providing vital experience of life on tour, players will compete in 14 main events at some of the UK and Ireland’s premier golfing venues, including The Oxfordshire, Close House, East Sussex National and The Carrick on Loch Lomond.
The season concludes with the Tour’s top 60 players contending the Tour Championship. Players qualify to play on the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour either through a two-stage Qualifying School in the spring, or thanks to their 2015 achievements.
The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour provides Europe’s best up-and-coming golfers the chance to gain necessary experience of life on tour, and in particular in front of the TV cameras.
