For the 6th consecutive year, Costa Navarino in Messinia will become the backdrop for the Greek Maritime Golf Event.

A highly competitive golf tournament, it is organised by Birdie Events as an initiative of PGA golfer Thanos Karantzias, and will take place from 4-6 September.

Over 65 leading executives of the Greek maritime industry are expected to take part, with participants competing at both individual and team levels.

Golf enthusiasts will have the chance to compete in the two signature 18-hole courses, The Dunes Course and The Bay Course, in a landscape full of centuries-old olive trees with views of the Ionian Sea, the historic Bay of Navarino and the port of Pylos.
