Trevose Golf & Country Club is to host many of Europe’s top senior golfers next summer when the popular Cornish venue once again stages the Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship.
With the European Senior Tour’s entire 2020 tournament schedule cancelled due to the pandemic, the tour, which has recently been rebranded as the Legends Tour, will be hoping to return to a full season of events in 2021.
The Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship has always enjoyed strong support from Europe’s top over-50s players, even more so now that the tournament is hosted by 1991 Masters’ champion Ian Woosnam.
Next year’s tournament, which is being sponsored by Farmfoods, is scheduled for June 17-20, when UK golf fans will be treated to one of the first spectated events since the Covid-19 pandemic began as some of the world’s best golfers battle it out over Trevose’s spectacular championship layout for a share of the €200,000 grand prize, with €50,000 going to the winner.
Woosnam will be joined at the event by a number of Major winners and Ryder Cup stars, with Paul Lawrie, Jean van de Velde and winner of the 2019 Links Championship, Jean-Francois Remesy, all likely to be in attendance.
Woosnam said: “It’s been a tough year for golf with the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns making it impossible for this event to be played in 2020,” he said. “But I’m delighted to announce that we will finally be returning to Trevose in 2021 and I’m personally itching to get back out onto the beautiful Championship course next summer.”
