PGA EuroPro Tour


Europe’s Leading Development Tour
to conclude Season at Desert Springs Resort

Hotel Planner : PGA  EuroPro Tour

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Desert Springs has been selected to host this years season-ending Tour Championship of the PGA EuroPro Tour between Wednesday 28th – Friday 30th October 2015.

The PGA EuroPro Tour is Europe’s leading development tour, and the European Tour’s satellite in the UK and Ireland.

Offering direct access to the Challenge Tour through the final Order of Merit, PGA EuroPro Tour players will compete for over £800,000 of prize money in 15 main events at some of the UK and Ireland’s premier golfing venues, including Celtic Manor, Prince’s, Chart Hills and The Carrick on Loch Lomond.

Only the top 60 golfers on the tour’s ‘Race To Desert Springs’ after the final event of the regular season at Prince’s Golf Club qualify to play the Tour Championship, which carries an increased prize fund with every golfer guaranteed a pay-out.

The purse for the Tour Championship began the season at £60,000, but with any surplus from each regular-season event prize fund added, this figure it is set to rise considerably by October.

The best players on Europe’s leading development tour will be competing to seal their place in the top five on the ‘Race To Desert Springs’ at the end of the event and earn themselves a Challenge Tour card for 2016.

The Tour Championship at Desert Springs will be filmed for a two-hour highlights package to air on Sky Sports in the UK in November, and on networks around the world including Fox International across Asia, Fox Sports Australia, Fox Sports in Turkey, Greece, Malta and Cyprus and StarHub in Singapore.


Desert Springs Director of Golf, Simon Coaker remarked: 

"Desert Springs is delighted to be host to the Tour Championship, an event that will allow the Resort to continue to grow in terms of its reputation for quality, a factor of benefit and prestige to the Resort, its members, property owners and the local area. 

The Indiana course is a stimulating test of golf, it’s a thinking man’s course, not easy to overpower, offering a variety of shot making challenges to test the skill level of every player and one that requires excellent course management skills. We very much look forward to welcoming the players and to providing them with a wonderful experience."


Daniel Godding, Director of Operations at the PGA EuroPro Tour commented:

“I am thrilled to have such a great destination hosting our Tour Championship. The Indiana at Desert Springs is a great golf course and is a resort I know our best players will love visiting.

The standard of play on the EuroPro Tour has already proved itself to have progressed yet again this season and the competition to make it into the top 60 will be fierce. It is sure to be a spectacular finale to our season.”
