Following the cancellation of this summer’s Senior Open Championship, which was due to be held at Sunningdale Golf Club, the tournament will now be held there in 2021 instead
Europe’s only Senior Major Championship will be played at the iconic Berkshire venue from July 22-25, 2021.
The Championship was scheduled to take place from July 23-26, but has been cancelled along with the entire 2020 Staysure Tour season. The R&A and Staysure Tour will transfer over tickets and hospitality packages purchased for 2020 to 2021. Purchasers who no longer wish to attend in 2021 can apply for a full refund.
Mark Aspland, Head of the Staysure Tour, said: “The decision to cancel The Senior Open Presented by Rolex was extremely difficult, however we would like to thank all of our stakeholders and fans that continue to support us during these extraordinary times. We are delighted that we will return to Sunningdale in 2021 for this prestigious championship alongside our valued partners at Rolex, who continue to provide unwavering support for our game, and we will be communicating directly with all ticket-holders in the coming days.”
Paul Sedgwick, Captain at Sunningdale, added: “We are honoured to have the opportunity to host this prestigious event for a third occasion at Sunningdale and we look forward to welcoming the world’s finest over-50s golfers as they test themselves over the renowned Old Course in 2021.”
