Atalaya Golf and County Club is the opening venue for the 2011 Gecko Pro Tour
A new golf tour is about to launch in Spain, The Gecko Pro Tour is the new professional golf tour, which is open to all professionals and category 1 amateurs. This year will see 15 tournaments making up the playing schedule, culminating in The Players Championship, which is being played at the illustrious Valderama Golf Club.
The concept of the Gecko Pro Tour is to become the stepping-stone for Professional Golfers and top Amateur players to hone their skills in a competitive environment on top quality golf courses, before taking that next step up to the Challenge and European tours.
We have had a phenomenal response since announcing the set-up of the Gecko Pro Tour back in March this year. We have applications for tour status from players all over the world and with great courses and sponsors looking to come on board, the debut season of the Gecko Pro Tour looks like being one to remember.
The Gecko Pro Tour will see young golfing talent join professional golfers to compete in well run tournaments, which has a dedicated marketing team behind them, giving them the best courses and facilities to improve their games, give them a chance at some great prize money and most of all, give them that competitive edge to make the step up to the next level.
It is no coincidence that Spain has become such a magnet for golfers and a lot of this can be traced back to one man. It was a sad loss to the world of golf that we lost Severiano Ballesteros in May this year.
The Gecko Tour will be honoring the great man by donating a percentage of each tournament to the Fundación Seve Ballesteros (fundacionseveballesteros.com). We will also be holding an annual Pro-Am tournament, with all the proceeds being donated to the Fundación Seve Ballesteros.
