England’s Celtic county of Cornwall is to host its most prestigious golf tournament to date when the European Seniors Tour heads to Trevose on the north coast.
The Staysure Tour will visit the links course from 20-23 June, 2019 for the inagurual Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship, and looks set to bring with it a host of big names including 1991 Masters champion Ian Woosnam, 1999 Open winner Paul Lawrie and Ryder Cup hero Paul McGinley.
A total prize fund of €200,000 (£180,000) will be up for grabs as they tackle the historic Championship course designed by iconic golf architect Harry Colt back in 1925. To add further lustre to the course it’s recently been given a revamp by Mackenzie & Ebert, which stayed true to the original intentions of Colt, making for an even more impressive 18 that has nine holes hugging the sand dunes and the Atlantic coastline.
“Everyone here at Trevose Golf and Country Club is looking forward to hosting our first Staysure Tour event next year,” said Nick Gammon, managing director, Trevose. “We believe we have one of the finest links golf courses in the country, in one of the UK’s most idyllic locations. It’ll be a fantastic occasion for us, and Cornwall as a whole, to welcome so many legends of the game for a wonderful festival of golf.”
The event will get underway with a Pro-Am team event on June 20, day two will see the Alliance format of the week commence (one tour player with one amateur over the course of two days) before the final day’s play will see theamateurs step aside as the professional players go
head-to-head on the course in a bid to win the Championship title and a first prize of €50,000 (£45,000).
