The PGA EuroPro Tour is pleased to announce that Stoke by Nayland in Essex has been added to the 2009 schedule.
June’s visit to the picturesque venue on the Essex/Suffolk border will be the eighth year in a row that Stoke by Nayland has opened its doors to the PGA EuroPro Tour, with the first stage of qualifying also being held at the course for the sixth time.
Last year’s event was a nail-biting affair, with Whitefield GC’s Nicky Harris (pictured) edging out namesake Jamie (Nevill) by one stroke at eight under. This year’s visit kicks-off on Tuesday June 30 and finishes on Thursday July 2, with the Pro-Am on Sunday 28 June and the Practice Day on Monday.
“We are delighted to welcome back the PGA EuroPro Tour to Stoke by Nayland,” said Susanna Rendall, the managing director of the Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf Club and Spa. “It is always a pleasure to see the young pros tackle our course and we’re looking forward to opening our doors to them once again.”
“Stoke by Nayland has been a key feature on the PGA EuroPro Tour schedule for the last eight years and we are pleased to be returning there in June,” said Danny Nickless, operations manager for the PGA EuroPro Tour. “Susanna and her team have a first class venue both on and off the course and it is always a pleasure for the players to visit.”
The first visit to Stoke by Nayland this year comes on March 31 as one of the four courses to host the first round of Qualifying School for the 2009 season.
