PGA Catalunya Resort will celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Stadium Course
The third edition of the European Tour Destinations Senior Classic will be held from July 12 to 14 at PGA Catalunya Resort in recognition of the Stadium Course on its twentieth anniversary. The resort of Girona has hosted three editions of the Spanish Open and was the setting for the Final Phase of the Classification School for the European Tour for nine consecutive years until 2016, showing its quality at the highest level.
“This tournament has been growing in strength in the two years since its launch,” says Iain McInally, director of European Tour Destinations. “I must thank the Staysure Tour for making it possible to organize this tournament and show some of our highlights. Linna Golf Club and Lighthouse Golf & Spa Resort, venues in 2017 and 2018, respectively, were both wonderful hosts and we are now delighted to make use of the incredible facilities of PGA Catalunya Resort this year.”
“We look forward to organizing the third edition of the European Tour Destinations Senior Classic and welcoming so many legends of the game to a wonderful golf festival. The tournament will be part of a series of special events planned in 2019 to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of PGA Catalunya Resort and the exciting journey in which we embark for the future, “adds David Plana, CEO of PGA Catalunya Resort.”
“After two wonderful editions of the European Tour Senior Destinations Classic, we are delighted to visit PGA Catalunya Resort in 2019. The Stadium Course is one of the best golf courses in the world, in my opinion and that of many others. It is a true test of golf, but also one to enjoy it. To celebrate a Staysure Tour event is fantastic for everyone involved, “says David MacLaren, head of the Staysure Tour. “The tournament is between the Swiss Seniors Open and the WINSTONgolf Senior Open, which makes it a busy period for our players, but they will enjoy fighting for the points of the Order of Merit.”
