World-class Leeds Golf Centre To Host Seniors Masters Tournament This June
World-class Leeds Golf Centre Hosts Internationally renowned Senior Masters Tournament – with a star-studded Pro-Am the day before!
England Golf’s club of the year – Leeds Golf Centre – is hosting the internationally renowned Senior Masters competition for the third time this June.
Tipped as one of the biggest events outside of the European Seniors Tour, Leeds Golf Centre will welcome more than 70 senior professional golfers and amateurs alike, to compete over three days. The Pro-Am event will take place on June 25th followed by the European Seniors competition on the 26th and 27th June
Nigel Sweet, Leeds Golf Club’s Manager, created this event three years ago and has spearheaded its success. No stranger to the world of golf competitions, Nigel has won four Leeds Amateur championships and became Yorkshire Champion at the age of 42 and finally turned professional aged 50. He said: “The entire team is extremely proud of this club which continues to grow in stature year upon year. It has a great course, which more than lives up to these big events, and is the reason why we’re able to host the Senior Masters for a third consecutive year. The pros love it and will be visiting from as far away as Spain, Portugal and the US with the likes of Dave Shacklady (European Senior Tour Winner), Paul Streeter, Andrew Oldcorn (European Senior Tour Winner) and Andrew Sherborne all competing.”
It’s not just the pros who will be aiming for birdies, eagles or even an albatross or two, this event has also attracted the likes of former Leeds United footballer, Lee Sharpe and Clayton Blackmore. There is a prize fund of £5,000 for the main event competition and prizes available up to 16th place, so there’s everything to play for in this exciting tournament.
Keen to create a real buzz at the event, the club will be throwing open its doors to welcome members of the public to spectate and view this impressive golfing line up in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside.
“We believe this is a real coup for the great county of Yorkshire and we couldn’t be prouder to bring it to our region. We look forward to witnessing some spectacular golf over the three days, and we hope as many spectators as possible will join us,” adds Nigel.
