Northumberland venue joins PGA EuroPro Tour schedule

The 2010 EuroPro Tour schedule continues to take shape as Longhirst Hall Golf Club in Northumberland has signed a deal to host a tournament in June.
The Tour announced the first dates of next year’s schedule late in 2009 and the Morpeth club is the latest to be added to the schedule from 9-11 June.
Longhirst was formed in 1997 and features two superb 18-hole layouts. The EuroPr0 Tour event will take place over The Lakes course, which is designed with the Florida-style courses in mind. The Lakes course is not a long course but accuracy will play a major part in deciding the ultimate winner, with an abundance of lakes and water features coming into play on most holes.
“To bring an event of this stature to Longhirst Hall has been an objective since our opening in 1997,” said Graham Chambers, Longhirst Hall’s golf manager. “The North-east of England is a hot bed for golf, and we look forward to hosting golfers from all over the country. We have a unique course for them to test themselves on, and I'm sure they will find it demanding but enjoyable. We are excited also to be teaming up with Matchroom Sport and the PGA for the first time.”
“I am delighted that we have agreed a deal to take the Tour to Longhirst Hall,” said the Tour’s operations manager Danny Nickless. “We are always looking for new and exciting venues to host tournaments that will provide a stern test to the players, and Longhirst certainly fits the bill.”
Further events on the 2010 schedule will be announced shortly – entry for the Q School is now open at the official website
