First pro event in Kazakhstan

9.30am 30th March 2005 - Sponsorship

The European Challenge Tour is set to write golfing history with a journey to the Republic of Kazakhstan for that country’s first professional golf tournament, the Kazakhstan Open, to be played at the Nurtau Golf Club, Almaty, Kazakhstan, from 25-28 September.
Nurtau Golf Club was opened in 2003 by seven-time European Tour Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie, who played with Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazabraev.
The Kazakhstan Open will carry a prize fund of €250,000 and is symbolic of the 2005 Challenge Tour Schedule. The tour’s visit to Kazakhstan represents both the pioneering spirit of the Challenge Tour and the fact that in 2005, the Challenge Tour is set to offer its membership the largest total prize fund in its 17 year history, with the players contesting over €5,000,000 across 31 confirmed events.
There are currently five new events on the Schedule – the Kazakhstan Open, the Abama Open de Canarias, the Thomas Björn Open presented by Multidata, the Open de Mahou de Madrid and the Rotterdam International Open – all of which are welcome additions to the 2005 Challenge Tour.
