Costa Navarino, the Mediterranean’s prime sustainable destination, and José María Olazábal, the World Golf Hall of Fame star, have teamed up in 2022 for the inaugural Olazabal & Friends Charity Pro Am to raise money for good causes and to celebrate Costa Navarino’s expansion from two to four golf courses.

Following the successful launch last year, the Olazabal & Friends Charity ProAm in 2023 will again take place at Costa Navarino and played on the International Olympic Academy Golf Course as well as the Hills Course, both designed by José María Olazábal.
