The Ivobank PGA EuroPro Tour is delighted to announce that the Ladbrokescasino.com Masters will take place at La Cala Resort in Malaga. The world’s leading developmental Tour will take over the Spanish venue from 21-25 September as the curtain comes down on an exciting year.
Eddie Hearn, chief executive of the Tour, said: “We are delighted to take the Tour to La Cala for the Ladbrokescasino.com Masters. This year the Ivobank PGA EuroPro Tour has secured some of the finest venues in Europe for the best young players in the world and La Cala falls into that category. We are also happy to have Ladbrokescasino.com on board again after their excellent backing last year.”
Andy Harris, Managing Director of Ladbrokescasino.com added: “We’re really pleased to be able to lend our support to a tournament that provides a platform that contributes to the potential future success of young players on the golfing circuit. We are delighted to continue the association between Ladbrokescasino.com and the Ivobank PGA EuroPro Tour and take it to the next level by going international. We are sure our valued customers will enjoy the superb facilities at La Cala Resort and hopefully chart the emergence of Europe’s next top golfers.”
Following on from the Tour travelling to Vilamoura in July, and an exciting venue for the Tour Championships to be announced soon, the Ivobank PGA EuroPro Tour is taking the best players all over Europe to test their game, and La Cala are more than happy to accommodate.
“La Cala Resort is delighted to host this important event,” said Alan Saunders, director of golf at La Cala Resort. “As the biggest golf resort in Spain we have already hosted the Ladies European Tour Q-school on more than one occasion and last year we welcomed the Spanish Professionals’ Pairs final which was won by Miguel Ángel Jiménez and Andrés Jiménez. As a resort we have been heavily involved in the promotion of junior golf at the highest levels and regard the EuroPro Tour as a natural extension of that policy by promoting competition for the next generation of professional golfers. By hosting major international amateur events we have seen European Tour players such as Álvaro Quirós and Pablo Martín compete successfully at La Cala before joining the paid ranks. Campo Asia is one of three 18-hole courses in the complex and is also the oldest. Although, at just under 6,500 yards it is not long, it demands accuracy and good course management with a number of risk/reward holes. It is all set up for an exciting tournament.”
