Ginn sur Mer Classic - Palm Coast Gets a Second Professional Golf Event

Ginn sur Mer Classic - Palm Coast Gets a Second Professional Golf Event Another professional golf tournament is coming to Palm Coast, Florida this year as The Ginn sur Mer Classic relocates from the Tesoro Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla., to The Conservatory Course at Ginn Hammock Beach Resort. The event will be a part of the PGA TOUR’s Fall Series and will be played Oct. 27 – Nov. 2, 2008.

“The Palm Coast community is privileged to have not one but two professional golf events in their area starting in 2008,” Tournament Director John Subers said.

The Conservatory, a Tom Watson signature design, is comprised of 140 acres of dramatic elevation and undulating greens not commonly found in Florida.

The course, which is the longest in the state of Florida measuring a robust 7,776 yards from the back tees, will certainly test the mettle of the PGA TOUR professionals in October.

Watson’s design is littered with potential trouble spots that will force the pros to hit it straight.

The Conservatory course includes nearly 76 acres of man-made lakes and three water features in addition to 140 bunkers.

In addition to the PGA TOUR event, the Ocean Course at Ginn Hammock Beach Resort is the home to the Champions Tour’s Ginn Championship. The Ocean Course is a Jack Nicklaus signature design with six holes that put the players right on the very edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

Following a lengthy hiatus after The PLAYERS Championship in May, the Ginn sur Mer Classic will be the PGA TOUR’s first stop to return to the state of Florida during its fall schedule, giving the Sunshine State another late season event to go along with the Children’s Miracle Network Classic presented by Wal-Mart, which takes place the following week in Lake Buena Vista.

The agreement with the PGA TOUR states that the event would rotate to different Ginn properties over the remainder of the contract, which is fi ve years, with The Conservatory Course being approved by the PGA TOUR for 2008.

In the coming years, the goal is to move the tournament to the new Ginn sur Mer Resort in the Bahamas.
