European Seniors Tour event for Benahavis, Andalucia

The European Senior Tour is set to visit Benahavis in southern Spain for the first time when the Benahavis Senior Masters takes place at La Quinta Golf and Country Club from October 2-4, 2009.
Former Spanish Ryder Cup legend Manuel Piñero, who is also the course designer at La Quinta, will feature in the inaugural event, competing in a strong field of eligible Senior Professionals.
La Quinta Golf and Country Club, which is managed by Troon Golf, lies in the heart of the region of Benahavis, Andalucia, - an area renowned for its beautiful mountain scenery and outstanding golf courses. It is currently home to nine of the 60 golf courses in the Costa del Sol with this number expected to increase to 15 in the next decade.
Jose Antonio Mena Castilla, Mayor of Benahavis, said: “Benahavis looks forward to welcoming the European Senior Tour in 2009. Golf is an important part of Benahavis and I am sure the European Senior Tour professionals and spectators alike will enjoy the beautiful scenery and pleasant environment that exists here.”
The agreement between the municipality of Benahavis and the European Senior Tour has been brokered by promoters, WSM Sponsorship.

The full 2009 European Senior Tour Schedule will be released early in the New Year.
