(News release from the PGA Europro tour)
Rowallan Castle Golf Club in Ayrshire is the latest venue to be added to the strongest ever line-up of events on the 888poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour for 2012.
Rowallan Castle is the first course designed by eight times European No 1 golfer and 2010 winning Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie and the Tour takes over the stunning Scottish venue on August 1-3.
Montgomerie’s course is another exciting new addition to the Tour alongside fellow five-star venues Concra Wood (July 11-13), Mar Hall (August 8-10) and Frilford Heath (July 18-20). That quartet compliment old favourites such as Burhill (June 8-10), Fota Island (July 4-6), Wychwood Park (August 22-24) and Collingtree Park (June 20-22), with September’s Tour Championship to be announced soon.
Oxford’s Frilford Heath also hosts the final stage of EuroPro Tour Qualifying School on April 11-13, with the deadline to enter the first stage on March 20.
“I’m delighted to be taking the Tour to Rowallan Castle,” said Danny Nickless, operations manager for the 888poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour.
“Colin Montgomerie has designed a challenging course that is a great addition to our strongest ever Tour and the facilities there are fantastic.”
