Play began at 8:00 am local time and the leaders group teed off at 9.40 am local time from the 1st hole.

Final Round Player Quotes
France’s Oihan Guillamoundeguy earns his 1st professional win at the 2023 Abruzzo Alps Open. He shot a final round of 4 under-par, 66 with 2 bogeys and 6 birdies to conclude the tournament with a three-day total of 13 under-par. He is just 18 years old, turned professional at the end of 2022 and currently represents Golf Club SeignosseGuillamoundeguy already was an Alps Tour winner as he won last season while he was still competing as an amateur. After he sealed his 1st win, Guillamoundeguy was very emotional: “today was really good. It was a good fight. The pins were really tricky today but I did really well with my caddie. I made a small mistake on the 9th hole but was able to bounce back with a birdie on the 12th so it was really good. I’m so happy, it’s a nice feeling.”  He went to add that he found, Miglianico Golf & Country Club is a really good course, there are some easy holes and some tough holes. It’s a bit tricky but if you want to win here you have to hit the ball well.”  Guillamoundeguy was pleased about today as, “I moved up in the Order of Merit and that was my objective. You know the 1st year as a pro isn’t always easy as there is a lot of pressure but I’m really happy about how this week went. Now I will go back home and enjoy this win with my friends and family and then back to work to focus on the end of the season where I want to try and win another tournament.” 

Twenty-seven years old, Davey Porsius, from Netherland concludes the tournament in 2nd place, only 1 stroke from the title. He stayed near the top of the leaderboard for the entire week and was in the lead after yesterday’s 2nd round. He shot an even par, 70 today with 1 double bogey, 3 bogeys and 5 birdies for a three-day total of 12 under-par. Porsius is a previous winner on the Alps Tour as he won the 2022 Hauts de France-Pas de Calais Golf Open title last spring. After his round, he commented: “I played pretty solid for 16 holes, I was trying to shoot 2 or 3 under-par which then Oihan had to go 4 or 5 under-par. I definitely regret hitting driver Out of Bounds on the 17th hole. I had a 1 shot lead at the time and the only thing you can’t do on that hole I did so that is a major regret I have and then I unfortunately tried to make it up on the last hole and I missed a 1m30 putt for birdie on the 18th hole to force a playoff.” Porsius went on to add that “I knew I had to play well this week. Unfortunately, it’ll be a few weeks until the next tournament where I will actually be in the field to defend the title so hopefully I can give myself another opportunity to grab a win this season. I will keep focused in these weeks off on the golf and what I’ve been working on as I finished 3rd last week and 2nd this week so results are coming.”

The tournament ends with a 4-way tie for 3rd place with a three-day score of 10 under-par: Estonia’s Sander Aadusaar, Spain’s Victor Garcia Broto and French Duo: Augustin Hole and Franck Medale.  Tied for 7th place only 1 stroke back, 3 of this season’s previous winner: Spain’s Quim Vidal, Netherland’s Lars Keunen and Italy’s Manfredi Manica.

The low round of the day belongs to Estonia’s Sander Aadusaar who shot a 7 under-par, 63 in the final round.

Qualifying School 2021 – First Stage Round One at a Trio of Venues in Italy

November 2nd, 2021 – With the continuing support of the Italian Golf Federation, the First Stage of the Alps Tour Qualifying School for the 2022 season takes place this week over two days and two rounds of 18 holes at three different venues in Italy.

There is a record number of entries in this 20th anniversary year, with aspiring golfers from all over the world seeking to join the ‘Raising Stars’ Alps Tour. They will play 36 holes of stroke play to try and be among the 144 Final Stage entrants of the QSchool next week, the top 35 of whom receive a full category on the tour for 2022. However, only about a third of them on each course will make it to the Final.

In the South of Italy, 70 players are lined up to play at the Acaya Golf Club near Lecce. The course hosted the two opening tournaments of the 2021 season, the MIRA Golf Experience Acaya Open and the MIRA Live the Soul Open. The par 71, 6192 m/6772 yd open parkland layout can be challenging with its numerous bunkers, water coming into play on half the holes and an added difficulty: the wind.

Further up the coast, wind can also be a factor at the second venue where 71 players will head out on the Miglianico Golf and Country Club, regular host site of the Abruzzo Open. The par 71, 6015 m/6578 yd course has fairways that are quite narrow whilst the bunkers and water hazards are carefully distributed to make some holes tricky.

For the third venue, we move to the North of Italy and the Golf Club Le Fonti in Castel San Pietro Terme near Bologna. A welcome return to the course which last hosted the Alps Tour in 2010 for the Le Fonti Open. The 71 players on this, the longest of the three First Stage Round One courses, par 71, 6411 m/7010 yd , face multiple water hazards making many holes a real technical challenge.

The weather looks promising with pleasant temperatures in Acaya, slightly cooler in Miglianico and a possibility of showers in Castel San Pietro Terme.

The Alps Tour Qualifying School is open to male professionals belonging to a PGA or a recognised golf federation, and male amateurs with a maximum handicap of 2,0.
