The seventh Prestige Masters Series has come to a close with a fantastic final which was held last Saturday at India’s #1 ranked golf course, Prestige Golfshire Club.
This year’s event saw 650 golfers compete over four qualifying legs for a much-coveted place in the final. This year’s final comprised of 60 players competing for the coveted accolades of being the 2021 Masters Series Champion and also winning a trip for two flying Emirates Business Class to Troon’s Costa Navarino Westin Resort & Spa in Greece. The prize for two persons includes golf on the acclaimed Bernhard Langer and Jose Maria Olazabal golf courses.
This year’s winner qualified in the 3rd leg in September. Mr. Ashok Chokalingan won the event by five shots from Satyendra Kumar.
Mr. Chokalingan was ecstatic with his win and stated that it was the highlight of his golfing life.
The Prestige Golfshire Team worked tirelessly to have the golf course ready to play after the course experienced over 2” of rain on the Thursday night before the event, causing the 7th green to disappear underwater for most of Friday. Thanks to the agronomy team, by Saturday the green was visible again and open for play.
General Manager Declan McCollam said that the work put in by Superintendent, Javier Farran, and his team to prepare the golf course for the event was exceptional and a tribute to the professionalism of the entire Prestige Golfshire team who made the event a success.
McCollam said that the guests were raving about the condition of the course and the fact that it was even open as every course in the region was closed and had been for almost a week.
Next year’s Prestige Masters Series will begin in May of 2022.
