European Tour: Made in Denmark
PGA European Tour at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.
”A dream of an opportunity”
For the past two years, Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort has formed the backdrop for one of Denmark’s biggest sporting events, and in August 2016 the European Tour tournament “Made in Denmark” will arrive in Gatten for the third time.
To host a PGA European Tour tournament is a great honour, and the greatest that we in Denmark can achieve within the world of golf.
In the years up to the first Made in Denmark tournament, we worked hard to get both our new centre building and the re-design of PGA Backtee Course ready to accommodate such an event. As CEO of Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, it is with great pride that this dream has now become a reality.
Made in Denmark received more than 82,000 guests in 2014, all of whom helped to create a truly unique and amazing atmosphere — especially on the famous 16th hole “Himmerland Hill”, which achieved an almost legendary status during the tournament.
In 2015 we were lucky enough to be blessed with fantastic summer weather over all 5 days of the tournament. Visitor numbers rose to well over 86,000, and the atmosphere around the resort was just as good — if not better — than the previous year.
We of course hope to welcome just as many guests again in 2016, and we are striving to be able to present them with even better conditions before, during and after the tournament, so that everyone can enjoy yet another unforgettable experience in Himmerland.
We are all very humbled by the task we have begun, and we look forward to, once again, welcoming world-class golf in an international environment of high standard.
