The highly anticipated Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship has returned to the legendary Trevose golf course, for what is expected to be an incredible four days of impressive golfing action.
On now, until June 19, golf fans are witnessing some of the greatest names in golf history competing for the title of champion, as well as the €200,000 grand prize, with €50,000 going to the winner.
This year sees none other than 1991 Masters winner Ian Woosnam OBE return as the event host, joined by a star-studded line-up of golf legends including 1999 Open champion, Paul Lawrie OBE and winner of the 2019 edition of this event, Jean-Francois Remesy.
Additionally, there will be players participating in their first year in the Legends Tour having tuned 50, including Jeev Milka Singh, Adilson De Silva and Niclas Fasth. After the triumphant success of last year's event, Ian is personally incredibly excited to return to the epic grounds of Trevose for four days of fun competition:
“It’s great to yet again be hosing this tournament, and couldn’t wait to see what this year's event brings. If the past couple of years are anything to go by, this was always going to bring an action packed few days, and I couldn’t wait to get back on the course alongside my fellow professionals.”
Since its launch in 2019, the Trevose tournament has gained a reputation as one of the very best events on the Legends Tour, particularly due to its idyllic location. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean, the Championship is the ultimate test of golf while being the perfect event for spectators
Once again, Farmfoods returns as the Championship’s headline sponsor and leading brand agency, Champions (UK) plc, is back as event organiser.
Champions’ CEO John Hayes discussed the exciting return of the tournament: “I’m thrilled to see the Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship to return in 2022. Organising such an event is an incredibly rewarding job for the team, and we all couldn’t wait to see everything coming together for what is an unforgettable tournament.”
“As always, I’d like to thank Farmfoods owner Eric Herd, Trevose Golf and Country Club’s owners Nick and Billy Gammon for their continued support, and I am glad to see the professionals back out on the course.” Throughout the Championship there will also be plenty of opportunities to raise money for charity with the Lord’s Taverners. The institution is the UK’s leading sports disability charity.
