For the first time, Israel will host an official professional golf tournament, with highly anticipated ALPS Tour event at the Caesarea Golf Club from Wednesday through Monday in the Edmond de Rothschild Israeli Masters.

The tournament will be the final of the renowned ALPS Tour. Established in 2001 by Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland, the ALPS Tour gives young golf pros the opportunity to gain valuable experience in preparation for participation at higher levels such as the Challenge and European Tours.

More than 600 players representing 22 nationalities compete these days in 18 competitions for the ALPS Tour championship.

The hope is that just as tennis has become one of the most popular sports in Israel over the past 30 years, tournaments such as this will boost Israel’s golf industry and help the process repeat itself on the links.

This event will offer a challenge to the professionals, and a unique opportunity for amateurs to team with high ranked professionals during the pro-am rounds.

The Caesarea Golf Club – one of Israel’s two operating courses – meets the highest international standards after completing a total revamping under the design of renowned course architect Pete Dye.

Since its redesign, the Caesarea has hosted a wide range of international competitions such as the 2013 Maccabiah Games, as well as various exhibition tournaments with the participation of leading American golf figures such as Tom Lehman, Amy Alcott, Morgan Pressel and Hunter Mahan.
