The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour is delighted to announce Ablrate.com as title sponsor of the forthcoming £100,000 Ablrate.com Shoot-Out at Cumberwell Park Golf Club on Tuesday, June 27.
All players competing in the subsequent GRENKE Championship, taking place at Cumberwell Park from June 28-30, will be eligible to enter a par-three challenge on June 27. The winner of the par-three contest will take home £1,000 and the top 25 players will then be joined by the professional winner of the Cumberwell Park Pro-Am for The Ablrate.com Shoot-Out.
The winner of the preceding par-three challenge will take home £1,000. The top 25 players will then be joined by the professional winner of the Cumberwell Park Pro-Am for a hole-in-one shoot out.
Hitting in order of finishing position in the par-three challenge each player will have one shot, with 170 yards to carry over water to the island green of the 8th hole. If any player can ace the hole they will bring an end to proceedings and take home £100,000. In the event that no hole-in-one is made, the player nearest to the pin will win £1,000.
The hole-in-one contest will be filmed for a special edition of the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour highlights show and will be shown on Sky Sports and networks covering 128 countries worldwide.
David Bradley-Ward, CEO of Ablrate, said “As an online lending company it is important for us to engage with our core demographic of lenders and borrowers and golf is one of those sports that can help us do that. We are thrilled to be title sponsors of the Ablrate.com Shoot-Out, we only hope one of these dedicated Tour golfers bags the £100,000!”
“The PGA EuroPro Tour is a fabulous way for golfers to develop to the next level in their sport where a commitment to professionalism is a must, as a business we are committed to the development of the business community by offering flexible financing options. Our sponsorship of the Ablrate.com Shoot-Out and our continued sponsorship of the Tour until the end of 2018 is a natural fit for our brand and business.”
Daniel Godding, Director of Operations at the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour, said: “I’m thrilled that Ablrate.com will be title sponsor of the Ablrate.com Shoot-Out, with an incredible £100,000 tax free on offer for a hole in one.
“The par-three course at Cumberwell Park is absolutely fantastic and I’m excited to showcase it on a special episode of our highlights programme. I’m sure every player on the tour will enter our tournament at Cumberwell Park in the hope of taking home the £100,000.”
Ali James, Golf Manager at Cumberwell Park Golf Club said: “The feedback we have had since opening the Par 3 course has been fantastic and being able to host the Ablrate.com Shoot-Out with the potential of someone winning £100,000 during the EuroPro week is really exciting for us, and will be another great opportunity to showcase it even further.
“It’s our fourth year on the EuroPro Tour schedule now and I think we have established ourselves as one of the most enjoyable venues for the pros so what we are doing in conjunction with the EuroPro and Ablrate.com on this event will only enhance their experience when visiting Cumberwell.”
