Following the success of last year’s inaugural Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship, the Staysure Tour has confirmed the tournament’s presence on its 2020 schedule.
Returning to Trevose Golf & Country Club in Cornwall, the four-day event will see some of the most iconic names in golf take on the picturesque and challenging course just five miles west of Padstow between June 18-21.
Last summer marked the championship’s successful debut on Europe’s over-50s tour, which saw Frenchman Jean-François Remésy scoop the title and a €50,000 first prize.
Nick Gammon, managing director at Trevose, said: “Everyone at Trevose Golf and Country Club is delighted that the Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship is returning to the Staysure Tour this year. Last year’s event was a roaring success, and it was fantastic to see so many golfing legends playing out on our course.
“We are excited to welcome back several Ryder Cup and Major-winning players as we look to make the 2020 edition even bigger and better than last year. The team here at Trevose is already working extremely hard in preparation for the event.”
Ian Woosnam returns as event host and some of the star names likely to play include Paul Lawrie, Paul McGinley, Costantino Rocca, Peter Baker and Jean van de Velde.
The second of a three-year agreement the event will be promoted by levent organisers Champions (UK) plc. The East Midlands-based brand agency launched the event in 2019 and promotes fellow Staysure Tour event, the Farmfoods European Senior Masters, as well as the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship.
Champions’ director of sport, Tim Munton, said: “Trevose is one of the most beautiful golfing locations in the UK, and it is no surprise that last year’s inaugural Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship proved such a success. Topping that won’t be easy, but we’re looking forward to seeing who comes out on top this year with another stellar list of players already being lined up.”
A number of event partners have also come on board, including the Rick Stein Group. It was announced earlier this year that the Padstow-based company became an event partner to the event, which will see the group’s Chef Director Jack Stein create a pop up food stand on the course offering spectators delicious food to eat on the go while watching the golfing action.
