Golf Amateurs Open, an international event organized by the Wegolfers group, takes place in two this year. In fact, the tournament in Rome will be played in June and the Milan tournament in August.
The Golf Amateurs Open was born by picking up the baton from another international competition organized by Nextgolf (owner of the Wegolfers brand) between 2008 and 2019. This is the GIFT, an event that had involved many players from all over Europe and was held in courses of high level, among these Golf dei Laghi, San Vigilio, Arzaga, Monticello (six editions), Duchy of Parma and Alpino di Stresa.
Wegolfers’ experience with the World Amateur Golfers Championship led to the idea of developing an event with an international flair. The genesis is linked to a dream: to one day bring the WAGC World Final to Italy.
The Golf Amateurs Open is designed as a multi-day event, with multiple courses involved and many collateral activities. Wegolfers has imagined to realize the two tournaments in partnership with other agencies organizing golf events. Partner with whom to share the success of an event that aims to become a point of reference in the world of Italian and international golf.
Unfortunately, the health situation of this period forced the organizers to temporarily reduce ambitions, limiting activities. The project provides for the possibility of increasing the number of events and progressively growing through the participation of players from all over the world.
