Gleneagles has announced a major prize fund increase for its 2019 International Pro-Am, an event that mixes luxury hospitality with competitive golf across its three championship courses.

The four-day festival of golf, which takes place at the Perthshire-based resort from July 23-26, will see 24 teams, comprising three amateurs and a pro, play for a prize pool of £30,000 – a 60% increase from 2018 – with the winning PGA Professional receiving £8,000.

The International Pro-Am is played challenge across Gleneagles’ King’s, Queen’s and PGA Centenary courses, with competitors staying at the five-star resort and enjoying luxury hospitality throughout the event.

Gary Silcock, Director of Golf at Gleneagles, commented: “The continued growth and global appeal of the International Pro-Am has allowed us to significantly increase the prize fund for 2019, a special year in which we host the Solheim Cup and also commemorate the centenary of our James Braid-designed King’s Course. It is encouraging to see that we are already close to confirming a sell-out international field for the fourth staging of this exciting annual event which continues to prove so popular for golfing groups and partners from home and abroad, and a host of PGA club professionals.”

This year’s event included celebrity guests from the world of sport, including European Tour winners, along with pro-am teams from Scotland, England, USA, United Arab Emirates, Russia and the Caribbean. Packages for 2019 include a four-night stay in Sovereign Room accommodation, including a full Scottish breakfast, drinks reception and welcome dinner, post-tournament prize dinner and presentation, and daily use of the on-site range at the PGA National Golf Academy.
