ATHENS – The Greek Maritime Golf Event returns for the 8th year with the participation of distinguished executives of the Greek and global maritime industry, on September 8-11, 2022, at Costa Navarino, Messinia.
The best golf tournament in Greece, as it has been distinguished in recent years, will present for the first time a new competition format, as its participants will compete on a team level, in a two-day shotgun scramble on Friday, September 9, at The Hills Course and on Saturday, September 10 at the International Olympic Academy Golf Course.
More than 100 leading executives from the maritime industry will play at the two new 18-hole signature courses and cross their golf clubs to win the top three positions in the overall standings, whereas special awards will be given to individual players who will achieve the best scores in the Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin categories. The final results will materialize after the completion of the event’s second day of competition on Saturday, September 10.
Golf & Maritime Industry join forces for a good cause. The Greek Maritime Golf Event is a tournament that is always distinguished for its social work, amongst other things. This year, the leading golf event will strengthen through its actions the Non-Profit Company HOPEgenesis. More specifically, during this year’s award ceremony to the winners, and winning teams respectively, on Saturday, September 10, participants will have the opportunity to directly contribute with their desired amount at the designated area. The total amount to be collected will be given to the Non-Profit Company HOPEgenesis, operating in the health and social welfare sector, which aspires to reverse the trend of declining birth rates in Greece with the aim of providing complete medical care to women, from the moment they become pregnant until the day of their birth.

In the context of this year’s event, HOPEgenesis Chairman, Dr. Stefanos Chandakas said, “We thank the Greek Maritime Golf Event for the valuable collaboration aimed at supporting families in Greece and especially women living in remote areas and remote islands of our country, to give birth to their children. We know that the organizers’ social awareness is long-standing and significant, and we are grateful that this year they chose to contribute to our work against infertility”.
