European Tour Destinations secures commanding presence in new ranking of Europe’s top courses

17th September 2019
European Tour Destinations’ network of world class golf venues has once again dominated Golf World magazine’s Top 100 Golf Courses in Continental Europe, with a total of 14 courses from across 11 of its venues making the renowned listing. The ranking from Golf World was compiled by a team of international experts, expanded this year to include specialists for each European nation in an effort to make it the fairest and most accurate listing to date. Over half of the 20 European Tour Destinations located in continental Europe featured on the illustrious list, including all three courses at Quinta do Lago and The 2018 Ryder Cup course at Le Golf National. Ian Knox, Director of Operations for European Tour Destinations, said: “European golf is only becoming more competitive every year, with some incredible new developments appearing across the continent; so to see European Tour Destinations not only maintain, but actually significantly grow our strong presence in the ranking is a testament to our overarching ethos. “European Tour Destinations is committed to working collaboratively with venues which display the very highest levels of course presentation and conditioning, and only courses that consistently match those standards become part of our network portfolio. “To play a European Tour Destinations golf course is to experience the same challenge faced by Tour professionals every week – and for this guarantee of quality to be recognised once again in Golf World’s latest ranking of Europe’s finest courses is a fantastic achievement for our venues.” Also featured in the Golf World supplement is a listing of “The Next 100” which displays close contenders who they deemed could easily make the next ranking, and this listing featured six more European Tour Destinations venues from across the continent. The European Tour Destinations that featured in the Top 100: 6. PGA Catalunya Resort (Stadium Course) 8. Troia Resort 11. Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort (Chateau Course) 22. Le Golf National (Albatros Course) 29. Quinta Do Lago (South Course) 34. Tbilisi Hills 40. Finca Cortesin 61. Verdura Resort (East Course) 76. Linna Golf 88. Quinta Do Lago (Laranjal Course) 91.

Carriles secures Senior Open spot with first Staysure Tour victory

15th July 2019
José Manuel Carriles posted a final round of five under par 67 at PGA Catalunya Resort to secure his maiden Staysure Tour win on home soil at the European Tour Destinations Senior Classic. The result marks the Spaniard’s first victory since his triumph at the 2003 Challenge Tour Grand Final and books his place at The Senior Open Presented by Rolex at Royal Lytham & St Annes from July 25-28. Carriles, who came through Staysure Tour Qualifying School for the third time in January, started the final day one-shot behind overnight leader Chris Williams but ascended to the top of the leaderboard with his third birdie of the day at the 12th hole. A fantastic fairway bunker shot to set up a birdie on the final hole sealed the deal for the 56-year-old, who hails from Pedreña in northern Spain, the birthplace of the late Seve Ballesteros. He finished the week on 13 under par, three shots clear of the South African, who signed for a one under par round of 71. ‘’When I was walking down the 18th with a two-shot lead I had so many thoughts,’’ he said. ‘’I was thinking about The Senior Open, about my family and all the hard work that goes into winning on the Tour. Even though on the final green I knew I had two putts to win it was nice to roll in the birdie putt for the victory. ‘’The course is great, really fantastic, and to win in Spain in front of my friends and local supporters is really special. ‘’To have to go back to Qualifying School and then come out and get my first win means a lot and hopefully, I will no longer need to worry about whether I have a place in the next tournament!’’ New Zealand’s Greg Turner, who played alongside Carriles and Williams in the final pair, recorded a three under par round of 69 to finish in a tie for third, alongside Argentinian Mauricio Molina and England’s David Shacklady, who chipped in on the last to sign for a final round of 69. Englishman Philip Golding fired the lowest round of the day, a bogey-free round of six under par 66 to jump up the leaderboard into tied eighth alongside the 2017 European Tour Destinations Senior Classic champion Santiago Luna. Carriles moves up 25 places in the Staysure Tour Rankings into seventh position, with José Coceres continuing to occupy the top spot. The Staysure Tour now travels to Vorback, in Germany, for the WINSTONgolf Senior Open from July 19-21.

London Golf Club Celebrates 25 Years

5th July 2019
London Golf Club is celebrating its 25th Year and will be marking the occasion with a Members & Guests 25th Anniversary Cup on Wednesday 10th July 2019. The club officially opened in July 1994, with the Charity Challenge Skins Match played on the Heritage Course. Jack Nicklaus – the course designer – battled with Seve Ballesteros and Tony Jacklin, but in the end Seve’s magical short game helped him win. Since then both golf courses have hosted many Professional events. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Heritage course, host to the 2008 & 2009 European Open, forces you to consider every single shot. Dramatic tee shots and daunting approaches make this course both memorable and challenging. The Nicklaus Design International course is undoubtedly one of the finest down-land courses in Europe. The course is punctuated with exciting risk and reward tee shots over water that really get the heart pumping. The International has hosted several notable events including the 2014 Volvo World Matchplay Championship, and the 2018 & 2019 Staysure PGA Seniors Championship. “I want to congratulate the club for the 25 years. We’re very proud to be part of it and wish the team a continued success” said Jack Nicklaus, 18-time Major Champion & Golf Course Architect. As the only Joint Venture Partner Golf Club of the European Tour and a part of the prestigious European Tour Destinations, IMG Prestige and Pacific Links networks, London Golf Club provides an oasis of golfing tranquillity in 700 acres of idyllic Kent countryside, just 20 miles from the Capital. “The whole London Golf Club team is extremely happy to celebrate these 25 Years of history. It’s an important mark for the venue and we’re looking forward to seeing members & guests celebrating with us on the 25th Anniversary Cup” commented Stephen Follet, Chief Executive. “the club had the pleasure of hosting major European Tour events over the past few years and it’s fantastic to be able to host the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship once again, in such a special year for us” finalised Follett. Tickets are now available for the 2019 Staysure PGA Seniors Championship, from 1-4 August. For more information please visit www.europeantour.com.

Lawrie locked in for Staysure PGA Seniors Championship

24th June 2019
Paul Lawrie will continue his maiden season on the Staysure Tour when he makes his Staysure PGA Seniors Championship debut at London Golf Club from August 1-4. The 1999 Open Champion turned 50 at the beginning of 2019 and continues his inaugural campaign on the over-50s circuit by teeing it up at one of the biggest events of the season. For the second successive year, London Golf Club hosts the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship with a £400,000 prize fund – the highest tiered prize fund outside of the Senior Major Championships – to battle for. Lawrie clinched the The Open in 1999 beating Justin Leonard and Jean van de Velde in a play-off after the Frenchman famously found the Barry Burn on the 72nd hole. Alongside his Major triumph, the Scotsman has seven European Tour titles to his name and was part of the ‘Miracle at Medinah’ team in The 2012 Ryder Cup. Following his Senior Open Presented by Rolex debut the week beforehand, the Scot will return to London Golf Club for the first time since the Kent club hosted the 2009 European Open. “I’m looking forward to another fun and challenging week on the Staysure Tour,” he said. “The quality of golf on the over-50s circuit is very high and the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship is a title which will be hard fought for. “It has been over a decade since I played at London Golf Club and I’m looking forward to returning and enjoying the test on the International Course.” The Staysure PGA Seniors Championship made its comeback on the Staysure Tour International Schedule last year as Philip Golding sealed his fifth over-50s victory with a final round of 63 at London Golf Club. Andrew Oldcorn was the last Scot to lift the trophy in 2011, after compatriot Sam Torrance won back-to-back titles in 2005 and 2006, while Bill Longmuir became the first Scottish winner of the Staysure Tour event in 2003. “There have been several iconic winners of this event, so naturally it would be an honour to join the list of great names who have lifted the trophy,” Lawrie said. With Lawrie confirmed, Staysure Chairman Ryan Howsam is looking forward to watching him play and seeing more Staysure Tour stars tee it up in August. “Paul is one of the great Scottish names of European golf and to have him playing the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship is very exciting for the event, the Tour, and the fans, who will be treated to four days of exciting golf in Kent. “Paul’s inclusion is a sign of the stellar field, which is forming for this year’s event, and hopefully, there will be another Major addition before August comes around.”
