Hanbury Manor, a Marriott Golf and Country Club in Hertfordshire, is counting down the days until August 26 when the stars of the European Senior Tour descend upon its fairways for the Tour’s most unique and newest UK event.

The Willow Senior Golf Classic was added to the 2016 schedule earlier this year, and offers a unique opportunity for amateurs to be part of a recognised tour event during the the main tournament days from August 26 to 28.

Applications are open to all amateurs who wish to enter, and all teams will be drawn, meaning those who play are in with the chance of teeing up alongside some of the best players on the European Senior Tour.

Entries for the main tournament cost £4,000 per individual place, and there’s also the chance to play in two Pro-Am days preceding the Willow Senior Golf Classic on August 24 and 25 at £1,250 per team (three players per team).

All proceeds from the Senior Tour Event will go to Willow, the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to provide uplifting and unforgettable Special Days, enabling them to fulfil lifelong dreams and create treasured memories with loved ones.

Willow Life President, co-founder, and former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson said: “What an exciting opportunity to play golf alongside celebrities and professional golfers alike and be part of this prestigious Senior Tour. And at the same time raising much needed funds for Willow, enabling us to help many more seriously ill young adults and their loved ones.”

Andy Stubbs, Managing Director of the European Senior Tour, said: “We are delighted to be able to add another event on English soil to the 2016 Senior Tour schedule, but we are also delighted to be able to support Willow and help highlight the fantastic work they do.

“We are extremely grateful to Duncan Sinclair for his generosity in enabling this event to happen and for his valued support of the European Senior Tour over the years. Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel and Country Club is a superb venue for a Senior Tour event and collectively we look forward to working together to promote Willow and raise funds, for what is a very worthy cause.”
