Prince's to stage Tour Championship

Prince's to stage Tour Championship

April 29th, 2013

The PGA EuroPro Tour will hold its 2013 Tour Championship at Prince’s Golf Club in Sandwich, Kent this October.

The biggest and final event of the Tour’s season will take place over 54 holes from Tuesday, October 15 until Thursday, October 17.

Prince’s is one of the UK’s leading Links golf courses and hosted Local Final Qualifying for the 2011 Open Championship.

The top 60 players on the Tour’s Order of Merit after the final regular-season event at Moor Allerton Golf Club in Leeds will be invited to play at Tour Championship, where they will compete for a share of an increased prize fund of £60,000.

Providing the biggest payout of the season, the Tour Championship will be decisive in completing the Order of Merit and determining the final top five, who will be rewarded with a category on the 2014 Challenge Tour.

Highlights of the Tour Championship will be screened on Sky Sports HD in an extended three-hour programme.

Daniel Godding, Director of Operations on the PGA EuroPro Tour said: “Prince’s is one of the country’s best Links courses and that is why we have decided to stage our Tour Championship there.

“The Shore and Dunes courses make up a superb championship course and are sure to provide our top 60 golfers with one of the toughest tests of the season.”

The PGA EuroPro Tour is the UK’s leading professional golf tour and makes up part of the third tier of European Golf. The top five earners on the season’s final Order of Merit earn categories to play on the Challenge Tour, putting them one step away from the European Tour.

The Tour season gets underway with the Motocaddy Masters at Wensum Valley Hotel, Golf and Country Club in Norfolk this Tuesday, April 30.
