Royal Golf Challenge 2019

The countdown to the 2019 edition of the Royal Golf Challenge is underway, sponsored by the prestigious luxury five-star hotel in corso Imperatrice in Sanremo. As has been the case every year for over half a century, this golf event will take place at the Golf degli Ulivi Golf Club, situated on the first hill behind Sanremo, surrounded by hundreds of olive trees and from which stunning views of the sea that embraces the Sanremo shoreline can be enjoyed.  The event is planned for Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October.

The golf club in Sanremo, open all year round thanks to the City of Flowers’ mild climate, in May 2016 received the coveted “Impegnati nel verde” environmental recognition for golf courses, Cultural Heritage – Historical, artistic and cultural heritage category, awarded by the Italian Golf Federation.

The Royal Hotel in Sanremo explained “Accuracy and care are required to successfully master this 5,203 metre-long course; with this long established event our hotel is once again confirming its status as a leading player on the local scene and a reference point for events in the Riviera dei Fiori, this is also thanks to the partnerships we’ve established with the area’s premier sports clubs”.

The competition, which has been part of the club’s competition calendar since the 1950s, was changed to the current format in 2015. Club members, as well as golfers from outside the province, from France and from the Principality of Monaco can participate.

The prizes are commensurate with the competition’s standing: two-night stays in 5-star hotels from The Leading Hotels of the World organisation, green fees for high-profile golf clubs, co-sponsors of the event together with the Royal, luxurious gold, white gold, rhodium-plated gold and pearl bottles and finally Magnums with personalised labels.

The gala dinner is on Saturday 19 October in the splendid surroundings of the Royal Hotel in Sanremo and will be open to players, guests, sponsors as well as important journalists, whilst the awards ceremony is planned for the end of the competition on Sunday at the Golf degli Ulivi.

For those wishing to stay at the Royal Hotel in Sanremo during that period the following packages are available for golfers and guests, from 392 euros (double room for one person) and 550 euros (double room for two people), for two nights in rooms with a sea view and a balcony. The competition participation and subscription fee for non-club members is, for Saturday and Sunday, 150 euros (80 euros for Sunday only). Non-playing guests can join the aperitif and gala dinner for 45 euros.
