the PGA EuroPro Tour announced that the Tour Championship – which will take place October 20-22 – has changed its venue.
Originally, the tour had planned the grand finale in Mallorca at the Club de Golf Alcanada. However, Slaley Hall has now been selected as the host substitute and Alcanada will host the Tour Championship in 2022.
Often referred to as the “Augusta of the North”, the hunt course is the perfect challenge for members of the tour who want to finish the season victorious.
Daniel Godding, CEO of PGA EuroPro Tour, said: “We are extremely sad not to visit the beautiful coast of Mallorca and the phenomenal Alcanada venue in 2021. We thank Alcanada for all the preparations they have made to welcome us and we look forward to visiting the golf course in 2022.
“We are pleased to be able to offer such a top-class course and one of the best golf courses in Great Britain to replace the Club de Golf Alcanada for this year’s tournament.”
Slaley Hall is managed by The QHotels Group, the largest operator of golf resorts in the UK. The company manages seven top golf resorts in England and Scotland and Keith Pickard, Golf, Leisure and Spa Director of the QHotels Group, welcomes the opportunity.
“We are incredibly proud that Slaley Hall will host such a fantastic and usually hotly contested tournament, and we thank the EuroPro Tour for the opportunity to show everything the place and facilities have to offer.
“It’s a great shame the Tour can’t visit Alcanada, but with the help of our wonderful staff at Slaley Hall we will make sure everyone has a fantastic end-of-season event with golf that challenges the players and the prospects . ” that amazes the fans. “
The venue is set in 1,000 acres of Northumberland moorland and woodland, and the resort proudly boasts a 4-star hotel and two championship golf courses – the Priestman and the aforementioned Hunting.
Slaley Hall has hosted 18 European Tour and Senior European Tour events on both layouts.
The hunting course was designed by Dave Thomas and the 7,000 yard par 72 course requires precision from the start.
A series of well-placed bunkers and tricky greens – built to USGA standards – offer members of the tour a rigorous trial.
EuroPro Tour events are free to attend and with such a talented field pitching in the Slaley Hall it should be a wonderful finale to an incredible tour.
