2023 PGA national tournament schedule revealed!


A trio of overseas venues in Cyprus, Turkey, and Italy respectively plus a combined regional and national prize fund totalling more than £2.3m are just some of the ingredients that constitute The PGA’s challenging and lucrative tournament programme for 2023.

It all begins, somewhat appropriately, with a new venue to the schedule and at one of the latest additions to the Association’s portfolio of PGA Nationals, Aphrodite Hills, Cyprus.

The stunning course, which overlooks the waters of the Mediterranean from where Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, is said to have emerged, staged the European Tour’s Cyprus Open in 2020.


Fast forward to the third week in April 2023 and two dozen of the Association’s finest players will follow suit by contesting the PGA Play-Offs.

The St. James’s Place National Pro-Am Championship and SkyCaddie PGA Pro-Captain Challenge will also be staged overseas at PGA Nationals.

The former, one of the UK’s most popular pro-ams, will return to the PGA National Turkey at Antalya Golf Club in late November; the latter will be staged for the fourth year in succession at PGA National Italy - Argentario Golf Resort and Spa – just a couple of weeks after the 44th Ryder Cup is contested in nearby Rome.

Closer to home, the Association’s flagship tournament, the PGA Professional Championship, will be fought out in Robin Hood country at Sherwood Forest Golf Club from June 13 to 16. Carrying a £69,500 prize fund with £10,000 going to the winner, the Championship marks the start of the qualification process for a place in Great Britain and Ireland’s 2024 PGA Cup team.

The 2022 PGA Cup was hosted by Foxhills Resort, Surrey, the sister venue of Farleigh Golf Club, the stage of the Coca Cola PGA Assistants’ Championship in the last week of July. 

The tournament pre-dates the US Masters by four years and has been won by a host of golfers who have become household names, not least Dai Rees, Peter Alliss, Tony Jacklin and Barry Lane. This year’s event, which carries a prize fund of £29,800 with £5,000 going to the winner, will be returning to the Surrey venue for the fourth time.

Earlier in July, the Women’s PGA Championship will be contested at Open Championship qualifying venue Kedleston Park, Derbyshire, for the fourth year in a row. And, following its successful introduction in 2022, the WPGA Assistants’ Championship will run in tandem.

A quintet of tournaments will also be played out on familiarity territory. The Senior PGA Professional Championship returns to West Essex and Romford Golf Club in May; the PGA-branded course at Bowood, Wiltshire, will host the English PGA Championship in July for the fourth time; the popular Golfbreaks PGA Fourball Championship returns to Carden Park in August; a handful of days later sees the Asbri Welsh National PGA Championship back at Machynys Peninsula for the second year; and the last national event to be staged on home soil, the PGA Inter-County Championship, will be contested in the first week of October at Sutton Coldfield Golf Club for the third time.

The PGA is also delighted to confirm its Open Series, launched last year, will continue in 2023. The Series will consist of seven 36-hole events spread across each PGA region and will carry a prize fund of £140,000 (£20,000 per Open Series tournament).
