Mazzoli Wins Final Play Off

Suez (Egypt), February 25, 2020 – The final day of play here at Sokhna Golf Club proved to be a real humdinger with the players really battling it out right down to the line. Stefano Mazzoli, the rookie Italian player, finally walked away with the victory after a one-hole play-off finishing the 54 holes with a 201 (-15).

The three-man play-off was between Mazzoli, Jonathan Yates from Ireland and yesterday’s leader, Sam Robinson from England.

Yates was first into the clubhouse. With five birdies, two pars and two bogeys, he made the turn at -13. A fault-free back nine saw him hole a brace of birdies and seven pars to finish at -5 (67) for the day and 201 (-15) overall and move to the top of the leader board.

In the flight just behind him, Mazzoli teed off the day on -11. It was plain sailing for par until hole 4 when his ball found the water on the left. He carded a double bogey to drop to -9. His hattrick of birdies on the last three holes of the front nine saw him at -12 on the tenth tee. Another four birdies and a single bogey saw him finish at -4 (68) and tied at 201 (-15) to force a play-off with Yates.

But Sam Robinson had not had his last say and had yet to finish. Starting at -14, Robinson had a shaky start to the day with two pars and two bogeys on the first four holes. He settled down to finish the front nine with two birdies and three pars for a par 36. On the back nine he produced another single bogey, but two more birdies saw him finish at -1 (71) to total 201 (-15) and join the play off.

The three players returned to the par 4, hole 18 tee for the face-off. Yates hit a good tee shot and landed on the fairway 53m from the green. Mazzoli had a great drive to finish on the fairway just 15m from the green. Robinson’s ball went AWOL landing in waste area to the left of the fairway, in a hole, to boot.

A fluffed shot by Yates put his ball behind the green almost toying with OB. Mazzoli chipped his ball to 3m of the hole for two on. Robinson’s recovery shot saw him finding the sand in one of the deep greenside bunkers.

Yates chipped on for three at 6 metres from the hole. Robinson’s bunker shot put him three on and 1m from the hole. Yate’s didn’t sink his fourth shot and it was given. Mazzoli lined up his putt, tapped the ball and holed out to win the trophy.

After his victory he expressed his satisfaction at this, his first professional win:

“I’m really happy with the result as it’s been a long journey. I only started playing pro in November last year. The day didn’t start as I had hoped with a double bogey on the fourth, so everything was all uphill from there. In the play-off, I took a chance and played my driver instead of an iron off the tee and it paid off.”.

The other most notable round of today was that of Giulio Castagnara from Italy. He had been leading at the end of round one but a disappointing second round had pushed him back to -7 at the start of play today. Today he performed a terrific remontada with eight birdies to finish in fourth place at 202 (-14). His sole bogey of the round on the last hole prevented us from having a four-way play-off!

At the end of today’s play, Sam Robinson moves to the top of the Order of Merit after his two consecutive second places of the season. Stefano Mazzoli’s win today puts him in second place just ahead of Lars Keunen, winner of the Ein Bay Open.

The Alps Tour returns to Egypt for the next tournament of the Winter Series, the Allegria Open from March 19th to 21st at the Allegria Golf Club on the outskirts of Cairo. Join us there for the next leg of the 2020 season.

Consistent Robinson Moves to First

Suez (Egypt), February 24, 2020 – After another round of solid play, the English player, Sam Robinson, moved to the top of the leader board at 130 (-14) after the second round of the Red Sea Little Venice Open at Sokhna Golf Club.

Two consecutive rounds of -7 (65) saw Robinson move from yesterday’s joint second place to first position and looking forward to tomorrow’s final round:

“Two consistent rounds. I pitched it great, chipped it great and putted great. Tee to green perhaps not my best by far but I’ve managed the game well and fortunately hit it in the right place and missed in the right place. It’s fantastic to be back playing again.”

Robinson, an experienced professional golfer, has been absent from the Alps Tour full-time since 2010 which he jokingly referred to as a “ten-year sabbatical”. A back injury and surgery in 2012 along with a new daughter kept him in the UK where he taught and played some tournaments. Back to playing full-time since August 2019, his season is off to a great start with a second position at last week’s Ein Bay Open and then, today’s leader board position.

Robinson teed off from the 10th early this morning and had three birdies going out followed by 5 birdies coming in and just one bogey on his card.

Two shots behind him at 132 (-12) is Jordi Garcia Del Moral from Spain who maintains his second-place position from yesterday’s round. He started today from the 1st tee and birdied the par 4 and followed up with straight pars through hole 6 then another birdie. A bogey on the par 3, 8th was immediately followed by another birdie on the 9th. Three more birdies and pars on the back nine saw him at -5 (67) for the day.

In joint third place at 133 (-11) are Nicolas Platret from France, Mathias Eggenberger from Switzerland, both in their second season on the Alps Tour. They both carded -6 (66) for the day. They are joined by the Italian rookie, Stefano Mazzoli, who had a perfect opening hole when he eagled the par 4, 1st hole and finished with a -5 (67).

The Irishman, Jonathan Yates, and the two French players, Thomas Le Berre and the amateur player, Theo Brizard are in joint sixth place at 134 (-10) after 36 holes. Brizard is the only amateur to have made the cut.

Yesterday’s leader, Giulio Castagnara, slipped back to 137 (-7) but comfortably made the cut at  140 (-4). He was among the 47 players heading into the  last round, of which 46 are professionals and one, an amateur.

Tees 1 and 10 will see the third and final 18 holes tee off at 7:45 am with the last flights leaving at 8:55 am local time. After some probable showers tonight , the weather should be warm and partly cloudy for the conclusion of the tournament.

Castagnara Claims Round 1 Lead

Suez (Egypt), February 23, 2020 – Coming into the clubhouse at the end of the first round of the Red Sea Little Venice Open with a -8 (64), the Italian player, Giulio Castagnara heads the leader board here at Sokhna Golf Club in Egypt.

Castagnara, in his second season on the Alps Tour had a stunning front nine of -5 (31):

 “The weather was great. Sunny and just a little wind. Perfect conditions.  I really like the course and was able to get off to a good start with a birdie on the first.”

His birdie on the par 4, hole N°1 was followed by 4 more going out and three more coming in for -3 (33) and not a single bogey in sight. So, what worked for him today? :

“I really hit the ball solid. Gave myself a lot of opportunities and then of course made a lot of putts. Today was a great round. I finished ninth at the Ein Bay Open last week which was a good start to the year and nice to see results right away after all the hard work put in over the winter. Hopefully I can keep this up over the next couple of days.”

Right behind him on -7 (65) are three more experienced Alps Tour players. Among them his fellow countryman, Michele Ortolani. He teed off from the 10th and also started with a birdie. He had two more on the outward nine but switched into overdrive at the start of the back nine, scoring 4 birdies in a row and then straight pars to finish.

He’s joined by the Spaniard, Jordi Garcia Del Moral, also off from the 10th tee, who carded four birdies going out plus one bogey but settled into a good rhythm on the inward nine with four more birdies and pars to finish.

Alongside him is Sam Robinson from England who teed off from the first and hit four birdies going out. The back nine saw three more birdies before a lone bogey at the par 4 hole 15. Robinson, however, remedied that with an eagle on the 17th hole par 5.

It looks like being a hard-fought tournament because after the top four on the leader board there is a pack of eight players at -6 (66) and then nine players at -5 (67).

And the eagles were flying today at the Sokhna Golf Club on Courses B & C. Sam Robinson was one of four players to score an eagle on the 17th (Benjamin Grimal, Sebastien Gandon, Jeong Weon Ko). Two other par 5’s, the 7th saw four (Jonathan Yates, Antoine Santarelli, Shaun Jones, Javier Ballesteros) and the 3rd had one eagle (Tomas Santos Silva). Another two were achieved on the par 4 10th (Tomas Bessa Guimaraes, Piers Berrington).

Last week’s winner of the Ein Bay Open, the Dutch player, Lars Keunen, is sitting at -2 (70) after 18 holes.

The second round tees off at 7:00 am local time tomorrow from tees 1 and 10. The forecast is for the day to be partly sunny but with the possibility of a couple of showers in the afternoon.

Keunen Captures the Ein Bay Open Title

Suez (Egypt), February 20, 2020 – The Dutchman, Lars Keunen, continued his week of steady golf to win the Ein Bay Open 2020 here at Sokhna Golf Club with a -12 (204) for the 54 holes.

This is his third season on the Alps Tour but his first win since turning professional. His previous best was second position in March 2019, again in Egypt, at the New Giza Open.

He finished the first round in third place then moved up to second after 36 holes and then took the first place today, four points clear of the nearest contender. Obviously thrilled to finally lift a trophy after a difficult 2019 season:

“I was just saying to some of the other guys that I missed the last six cuts. I started well last season but then went down towards the end. But the last couple of months I’ve been getting better.”

He also stated that he had changed a lot of things in his game:

“I’ve never hit a fade in my life but now I hit them all the time. I’m also practicing better and believe that if I practice well then, the results will come by themselves. “

And indeed, they did today. With a bogey-free round and four birdies he shot a 68 (-4) for the day. His play was pretty regular over the three rounds with a first round 66 (-6) without a bogey on the horizon and a second round 70 (-2) where he counter-balanced his 3 bogeys with four birdies and an eagle.

The English player, Sam Robinson, roared up the score board today moving to joint second place from fifteenth. With 5 birdies, an eagle on the par 5 15th and just one bogey he came into the clubhouse with -8 (208) for the tournament after an excellent 66 (-6) today.

He is joined by Tomas Santos Silva from Portugal, also with -8 (208). Having scored par 72 today, he maintained his position from yesterday.

In fourth place is rookie Jeong Weon Ko. The French player was joint leader after day one and his two succeeding rounds of par 72 saw him finish at –7 (209).

Vitor Londot Lopes from Portugal takes the fifth place with -6 (210) after also shooting a 66 (-6) today which rocketed him up from yesterday’s twenty-third place.

In joint sixth place at -5 (211) are the two Spanish players Victor Pastor Rufian, yesterday’s leader and Angel Hidalgo Portillo.

The players now have just two days before the next tournament, the Red Sea Little Venice Open which starts on 23rd February. This is also taking place here at Sokhna Golf Club but on Courses B & C. They play a little shorter, 6641 yards/6073 metres, than the Ein Bay Open A & B combination, 6963 yards/6367 metres.

With the weather forecast to continue in the same vein, warm and sunny, the second tournament of the season looks set to be off to a great start.

Round 2 Victory for Victor Pastor Rufian

Suez (Egypt), February 19, 2020 – At the end of Round 2 of the Ein Bay Open, the Spanish rookie, Victor Pastor Rufian moves to the top of the leader board at -9 (135) for the two rounds here at the Sokhna Golf Club.

Rufian, who finished 12th at the 2019 Qualifying School, started the day in joint 6th place after a first-round score of -4 (68). Going out, he had some ups and downs, starting with a par 4 on the 1st then bogeying the 5th. He settled down to make 4 pars in a row then shifted gear for 2 birdies one after the other but stalled with a bogey 5 on the 9th to come in at par 35 for the front nine.

On the back nine he switched to turbo with a total of 6 birdies and just one bogey to card a 32 (-5) and a total of 67 (-5) for the day.

In joint second place is Lars Keunen from the Netherlands and Tomas Santos Silva from Portugal, both with an overall -8 (136) for the 36 holes.

Keunen moved up one slot from yesterday’s third place finish. His single birdie on the front nine couldn’t forgive the two bogeys and he ended with a +1 (36) but a splendid eagle and two birdies on the back nine gave him a -3 (34) despite another two bogey for a total of 70 (-2) for the round.

Santos Silva climbed up from joint fourth place after the first round with 2 birdies, 6 pars and one bogey going out for a -1 (34). His bogey-free back nine and two birdies gave him a -2 (35) and 69 (-3) for the day.

Yesterday’s joint leaders, Arthur Ameil-Planchin from Switzerland and Jeong Weon Ko from France round out the top five, sharing fourth position with -7 (137) at the completion of play today. They both carded a par 72 at the end of today’s 18 holes.

Ko teed off early this morning and scored a +1 (36) on the front with two birdies and a bogey. He duplicated the score on the back nine with just one bogey and two birdies for a -1 (36).

Ameil-Planchin was off the tee shortly after midday and one birdie and a bogey gave him a par 35 for the first half. A magnificent eagle on the par 5 8th helped offset the two bogeys enabling him to end the incoming nine with a par 37.

The next players behind the top five are at -4 (140): Giulio Castagnara from Italy and Angel Hidalgo Portillo from Spain. Both players are in their second Alps Tour season and are closely tailed by a group of 7 players all at -3 (141).

The cut came at +2 (146) for 36 holes and of the 44 players who made the cut, all are professionals.

The third and final round hits the fairway at 7:45 am local time tomorrow and the last flight departs at 11:00 am. With the weather forecast to be mainly sunny and a high of 21°C, conditions look perfect for what should be a closely fought battle for the Ein Bay Open title here in Suez.

Ameil-Planchin & Ko, Joint Leaders After Round One

Suez (Egypt), February 18, 2020 – The Swiss player Arthur-Ameil Planchin and Jeong Weon Ko from France both came in with a -7 (65) to head the leader board after the first round of the Ein Bay Open here at Sokhna Golf Club.

Planchin is an experienced Alps Tour player but saw his 2019 season cut short by a wrist injury. After a two-month break with plenty of physical preparation and rehab, he picked his clubs up again in January 2020. After a month of training to try and get the old sensations back, his score today must be gratifying:

“I’m happy to be here and see everyone again. I hit the ball well today. I tried to stay calm, be patient and enjoy playing golf again.”

With 7 birdies and not a single bogey on his card, Planchin had a great result with a 32 (-3) on the front nine and a 33 (-4) on the back nine.

Alongside him is the French rookie Jeong Weon Ko who is playing in his first tournament as a professional. Evidently, the mental side came into his game as he admitted to a sleepless night:

“I woke up around 3:20 am and couldn’t get back to sleep. When I got to the driving range, I was hitting the ball really poorly so once on the course I told myself to concentrate on the essentials.”

A game plan that paid off as Ko started with a birdie and added 4 more on the front nine for a 31 (-4) with just one blip on the horizon, a bogey 4 on the par 3 6th. He started the back nine in style with two birdies on the 10th and 11th and another on the 13th. A slight hiccup on the 15th with a bogey 5 but he finished with two pars and a birdie on the 18th to card a 34 (-3).

In third place is Lars Keunen from the Netherlands at -6 (66). A familiar face on the Alps Tour as this is his third season. He played a solid round with 6 birdies and par on the rest of the holes.

In joint fourth place at -5 (67) are the Irishman, Gary Hurley and Tomas Santos Silva from Portugal. Hurley, a former Challenge Tour player, had a tough 2019 season which culminated in him having foot surgery in October. It’s great to see him back on form shooting 6 birdies and just one bogey. Santos Silva is embarking on his second Alps Tour season. He had a steady front nine with one birdie and a bogey but really got fired up on the back nine carding five birdies.

With four players at -4 (68) , four players at -3 (69) and 8 players at -2 (70), the first tournament got off to a flying start and as we all know with the game of golf anything can happen in Round 2.

As a side note, the only Egyptian player, the rookie, Issa Abou El Ela, had a respectable round at +1 (73). Whilst the Cameroonian player, Issa Nlareb Amang, came in at +4 (76) in this, his first pro tournament since his partial amputation two years ago.

Tee off starts at 7:00 am local time with some showers forecast for this evening but the weather remaining partly sunny tomorrow.

The Iron Will of Issa Nlareb Amang

Suez (Egypt), February 17, 2020 – For Issa Nlareb Amang, Egypt is:

“Where everything started, where everything stopped and where I hope everything will begin again”.

In February 2018, during the Ein Bay Open, the player from Cameroun, Issa Nlareb Amang fell ill with bacterial meningitis; a life-threatening disease, with a 50% mortality rate. He fell into a coma, went into septic shock and was rushed to hospital in Suez, where the doctors managed to save his life. However, the treatment for the septicaemia led to complications and the life-altering, partial amputation of some of his extremities.

Now, just two years later, with prosthetics in place, the 29-year-old player, father of three, is back at the Sokhna Golf Club :

“It was obviously difficult for me to come back here, but I’ve done it. I feel like I’ve been reborn in a way. I’ve been out practicing on the course today and began to feel a little of the old sensations, the old ‘good’ sensations of the golfer I used to be.”

For, prior to succumbing to the virus, Issa Nlareb Amang was a rising star of African golf. Champion of the Senegal Open in January 2018, the only Cameroonian and the first African player to gain entry to the Alps Tour, his talent and passion for the game promised a golden future.

Despite all the ordeals he has been through, Issa shows an unbounded amount of positivity:

“I’m proud, proud to be here. I surpassed myself on the course today. I feel even stronger now having come back here to Egypt. I had the impression out there that I haven’t lost much, even if my appearance isn’t always easy to live with and it brings tears to my eyes that I’ve lost two years.”

Even so, he maintains a relentless good humour extending even to his self-given nickname, ‘Bioman’, a Japanese TV series character half robot/half human.

And the biggest motivator of all? His love of golf.:

“Even when I came out of the coma and couldn’t talk, I never stopped playing golf in my head. Even lying in the hospital bed, I was constantly thinking about the little white ball. I think it is what kept me alive and what has given me the strength of will to play again today.”

His presence this year at the Ein Bay Open is a true testament to his extraordinary courage but as he explains:

“Golf, it’s my life, you see. It’s my life”.

Issa Nlareb Amang will be teeing off tomorrow at 12:40. Go ‘Bioman’, go!

Alps Tour 2020 Season Swings into Action with the Egyptian Winter Series

Suez (Egypt), February 15, 2020 – As the Alps Tour celebrates its platinum anniversary in 2020, the twentieth season tees off in Egypt at the Sokhna Golf Club  with the Ein Bay Open starting on 18th February and the Red Sea Little Venice Open starting on 23rd February.

Located on the North of the Red Sea, just an hour’s drive from Cairo, the Sokhna Golf Club features a 27-hole Championship Golf Course designed by John Sanford and Tim Lobb. It is the product of the merger of the 18-hole El Ein Bay Resort and the 9-hole Little Venice Golf Resort.

There are familiar faces and new ones among the field of 120 players from 19 countries and 4 different continents. Among the 114 professionals and 6 amateurs are some of the victors on the 2019 Alps Tour, notably, the Italian, Edoardo Lipparelli, winner of the Open de Saint Francois Region Guadeloupe and winner of the 2019 Order of Merit, here on a wild card. His countryman, Luca Ciancetti, winner of the Katameya Dunes Open is also present, as well as Irishman David Carey, winner of the Cervino Open and the Spanish player Gonzalo Vicente Elena, winner of the Fred Olsen Alps de La Gomera.

However, they will have some stiff competition from other experienced players and rookies eager to make their mark. All but three of last year’s Alps Tour tournaments were won by rookies including the Ein Bay Open where Frederic Lacroix from France was victorious. He will not be defending his title as he has now gone on to play the Challenge Tour having finished third on the Order of Merit last year. Similarly, last year’s Little Venice Open winner, the Englishman, Benjamin Wheeler, is absent this year so both titles are up for grabs.

Nothing would please Egyptian player Issa Abou El Ela more than to win one or both tournaments. He made his Mena Tour debut in October 2019 and will definitely be keen to shine on his home turf and follow in the footsteps of his father, Amr Abou El Ela, winner of seven Pan Arab Championships and one of the most respected names in Middle East & North African golf. The Mena Tour and the Alps Tour entered into a new partnership this year with the top five players on each being eligible to play the two circuits.

The Ein Bay Open will be played on Courses A and B a par 72, 6963 yards/6367 metres while the Little Venice Open the following week will be played on Courses B and C, a par 72, 6641 yards/6073 metres. The format for both is 54 holes of stroke play with the cut after 36 holes.

With the weather forecast to be warm and sunny the conditions should be ideal for the start of the new season and for the players to start sinking some birdies as this season sees the first player to achieve 240 of them receiving a 20,000€ bonus. Let the season begin!

3rd February 2020 | Alps Tour Golf

20th season in 2020!

As a non-profit organization, Alps Tour has been raising golf stars since 2001. The new schedule, about to start in Egypt, will offer 18 tournaments in 6 countries and an overall prize money of 760,000 euros, new collaborations and an exciting bonus of 20,000 euros for the player who makes more than 240 birdies during the year.

Paris, February 3rd, 2020 – Here comes an anniversary that we are proud to announce: In 2020, Alps Tour celebrates its 20th season. In fact, it was the year 2001 when four golf federations – France, Austria, Italy and Switzerland – first launched a new European Satellite Tour with one main goal in mind: to provide a testing ground for young players aiming to progress to top levels and gain professional tournament experience, and to create new opportunities and quality competitions for Europe’s next generation of golfing champions.

And indeed, this is what has been happening since: just take a look at the long list of former Alps Tour members who have been shining so brightly on the European Tour, from Englishmen Matt Wallace and Eddie Pepperell to Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts, from Italian Guido Migliozzi to Frenchman Victor Perez, just to name a few: they have won a total of 12 European Tour titles so far!

The European Tour itself acknowledges the important role of Alps Tour and its success in providing high level playing opportunities, by granting 5 Challenge Tour exemptions every year: so we’re expecting to add more rewards to the list of talented “young guns” who have climbed that step at the end of 2019 and will soon make their debut on the Challenge Tour.

That’s why we like to play with our claim, “Rising Golf Stars”, which perfectly fits our players, by adding an “a” and turn it into “Raising Golf Stars”, which is what Alps Tour has been doing since its inception, as a non-profit organization – that is, Alps Tour exists not to make money, but for the sake of growing a quality professional game with the backing from national golf federations and governing bodies of host countries.

Now the 20th season is about to start and Egypt will be, once again, the guest nation for the opening of a new, promising year, with the Ein Bay Open taking place at Sokhna Golf Club for the 8th year (February 18-20), followed by the Red Sea Little Venice Open (February 23-25). With around 200 players from 26 different nationalities, 18 tournaments in 6 countries and an overall prize fund of 760,000 Euros, the race to the top of the Order of Merit will be more exciting than ever.

Alps Tour cares about its members and it shows so by trying to improve its services every year. The new cooperation with MENA Tour by Arena falls into this category, as the Alps Tour leading 5 players from the 2019 Alps Tour Final Order of Merit (up to Top 10 and not otherwise exempt) are eligible to play the full season on the MENA Tour by Arena 2020. In return, the five top players from the 2020 Journey to Jordan on the MENA Tour (up to Top 15) will earn full playing rights on Alps Tour for the 2020 season. This cooperation gives more opportunities to Alps Tour’s best players to compete on great golf courses with great players and help the MENA talented players to climb up the European ladder.

Moreover, a new cooperation between the Alps Tour and Spider Golf, the company which has developed a golf statistics app that covers statistical analysis, personalised coaching and trainings, course management strategy and social community, was announced last December: Alps Tour members will receive a special discount for the premium version.

Last, but certainly not least, this news will appeal to all members and will spur them on even more to give their best: the player who first achieves 240 birdies (or better) during the 2020 tournaments, will gain a bonus of 20,000 euros!

Finally, Alps Tour is pleased to welcome a new addition to its team headed by Chief Executive and Operations Director Estelle Richard: Italian Sveva Greco, International Golf referee who has recently been confirmed for the 2nd time to attend the women’s golf event at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, will be flanking Alessandro Pia as a tournament director during the season.

Let the new adventure begin!
