Surrey resort Foxhills has secured a five year extension to continue hosting the Senior PGA Professional Championship. Foxhills staged the event earlier this year having first played host to the tournament in 2014.
PGA Professional Chris Reeve, golf operations manager at Foxhills, stated, “We could not be more pleased to get the tournament signed up here until 2020. It’s fantastic that the Bernard Hunt trophy will continue to be competed for over the course that bears his name. I know from speaking to everyone here and at the PGA, including chief executive Sandy Jones, that everyone wanted to keep the tournament here.
“It’s great for us to showcase our facilities including both of our courses, and for us to stage one of the PGA’s biggest events. Our members are certainly happy to welcome the Seniors here and to both watch and get involved with the tournament as volunteers.
“We have done a lot of work on the courses and will do more over the course of the year to make them better and better. The Longcross has just got into a list of the UK’s top 100 courses and to secure this championship is the icing on the cake.”
