The Alps Tour returns to Tunisia.

Tunisia, March 22nd, 2024- The Alps Tour is proud to announce that after eight years, it is heading back to Tunisia to continue to make history at the Tunisian Golf Open. The 2024 Tunisian Golf Open, will be played from April 25th to 27th at La Cigale Tabarka Golf in Tabarka, Tunisia. This marks the first time that La Cigale Tabarka will host an Alps Tour tournament and it will be the first time since 2016, that the Tunisian Open will be played.Our Chief Executive & Operations Director, Ms. Estelle Richard, recently signed a partnership agreement with Mr. Hassine Helmi, General Director of the Tunisian National Tourism Office (ONTT), to organize the Tunisian Golf Open for the next 3 years. We are ecstatic about the opportunity to add another country to our schedule.

After signing the agreement, our Chief Executive & Operations Director, commented: “We’re delighted to be back in Tunisia to continue our cooperation with the ONTT, Tunisair and La Cigale Tabarka to help promote Tunisia’s tourism, sporting, and cultural attractions. This allows the Alps Tour to keep growing, giving more opportunities to our young, talented golfers worldwide to compete and try to reach the next level of professional golf.” Since 2001, the tour has expanded, visiting more countries also across the Mediterranean Sea, allowing more players the opportunity to compete. Ms. Richard added: “We’ll also have the pleasure to welcome Tunisian and Arab players and offer them an opportunity to play with professionals and get more experience.”

The 2024 Tunisian Golf Open, a prestigious event, will see 132 players competing over 54 holes. The stakes are high, with a cut after 36 holes and a sudden-death playoff in case of a tie after 54 holes. They will battle for a prize fund of €45,000 and 45,000 Order of Merit points. The 2024 Tunisian Golf Open Winner will walk away with €6,525.00 and 6,525 Order of Merit points.

La Cigale Tabarka Golf, a masterpiece by Californian architect Ronald Fream, is a testament to his genius. Inspired by the famous Cypress Point Club course at Pebble Beach, Fream has perfectly integrated the course into the rich and varied landscape. The course, with its pine forests, cork oaks, beaches, cliffs, and the sea, offers a unique and challenging experience that players will remember for a lifetime. Following in the footsteps of the Challenge Tour players in 1995, our rising stars will have to display all their talent if they want to put in a good performance on this challenging course.

Tunisia offers a captivating blend of quality golf destinations, history, luxury, and unrivaled experiences. The town of Tabarka is a coastal town in the Northwest of Tunisia, close to the border of Algeria. It is set between the sea and the mountains and is dominated by an offshore rock where the remains of a castle are found. Tabarka is known for its coral fishing, a world-renowned golf course, La Cigale Tabarka Golf, and an underwater photography festival.

The 2024 Tunisian Golf Open is grateful for the support of the following institutional sponsors: Tunisian National Tourism Office (ONTT), La Cigale Tabarka Hôtel-Thalasso-Golf, and the national airline Tunisair.
