Title: Desert Springs to host the Senior Golf Circuit for second consecutive year in December 2016
     

It gives us great pleasure to announce that due to the success of the innuagural event held in 2015, that Desert Springs has been selected to host for the second consecutive year the The Senior Golf Circuit that has been aptly entitled the ‘Almeria Swing’ between Monday 5th and Saturday 10th December 2016.

 

The Senior Golf Circuit is for Professional golfers aged 48 years and over who want compete in open golf tournaments and Amateurs aged 40 years and over with a maximum handicap of 9 who want to compete alongside them.

 

The fields are considered some of the most colourful in golf.  Where else might you find a seasoned professional with multiple US PGA Tour victories, a top back surgeon who has turned professional to follow a dream and a Club Committee member in the same three ball, competing against each other?!

 

The ‘Almeria Swing’ will comprise Two (2) events; The Desert Springs Doubles on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th December and The Seniors Golf Circuit Finale on Thursday 8th, Friday 9th and Saturday 14th December at Desert Springs.

 

If you are interested in competing in the event yourself, for full details of how to enter please visit the official website of The Senior Golf Circuit: - www.senior-golf-circuit.com

 

David James, Senior Golf Circuit Chief Executive commented: -

 

“The Senior Golf Circuit is where professionals and top amateurs aged 48+  compete together across Europe. Amongst our Professional members are former Ryder Cup players and European Tour winners Paul Broadhurst and Peter Baker, Miguel Angel Martin a winner on both the European Tour and PGA Tour in America, Mark Mouland twice a winner on the European Tour and a host of former European Tour regulars including Domingo Hospital, Ronan Rafferty, David Ray, Gordon Brand jnr to name but a few. In order to keep growing fast and make our events even more attractive, we must have top venues on our schedule. Therefore, we are delighted to be returning to Desert Springs in December. Not only is it an excellent course and resort, it is one of only places where you can “guarantee” dry weather in Winter!”

 

Simon Coaker, Desert Springs Director of Golf and Marketing remarked: -

 

"Desert Springs is delighted to once again be host to the The Senior Golf Circuit. The Indiana is a thinking golfer’s course, one that cannot be overpowered, and it is going to be interesting to view how the more experienced professional is going to approach the course. We very much look forward to welcoming the players and to providing them with a wonderful experience."
