In the individual score, for professionals, Individual Strokeplay applies, where each professional player competes individually to achieve the lowest possible score throughout the game, while for amateurs, Individual Stableford applies, where they compete individually based on the Stableford system, earning points according to their performance on each hole. 

Wine Tasting for a good cause

Domaine Porto Carras, the largest unified organic vineyard in Greece supports the event as a Platinum Sponsor and on Thursday, May 16, will organize two Wine Tasting Sessions for the event’s guests. Participants will have the opportunity to experience firsthand the new era of Domaine Porto Carras and taste the exquisite varieties of the historic vineyard.
