Story published at 6:37, Friday, February 26th, 2016
London Golf Club, a European Tour Destination, is looking forward to playing host to one of the UK’s most important amateur Championships with the Brabazon Trophy – the Men’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship – taking place from June 22-25 on the Heritage Course.
The Championship is open to male amateur golfers of all nationalities and is played over 72 holes of stroke play over four days, with 18 holes played on each of the days. After 36 holes the field is cut to the leading 60 competitors and ties for 60th place.
Past winners include former Masters Champion Sandy Lyle; European Senior Tour players Gordon Brand Jnr and Ronan Rafferty, former amateur Champion and golf course designer Peter McEvoy; and European Tour players Peter Hanson from Sweden and Charl Schwartzel from South Africa.
The Championship will be played over the Kent venue’s Heritage Course, host to the 2008 and 2009 European Opens on the European Tour International Schedule. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Design provides an exhilarating test of golf and is maintained in pristine condition, with fast-rolling greens and immaculately presented tee-boxes and fairways.
Stretching out across the peak of Kent’s North Downs, London Golf Club is a superb, customer-focussed venue offering two championships layouts, both designed by Jack Nicklaus and his team. Both courses – The International and The Heritage – are consistently presented in immaculate condition, and are complemented by superb facilities including an award-winning clubhouse offering fine and casual dining.
