CAVERSHAM Heath Golf Club has been chosen as a venue for next year’s PGA EuroPro Tour.

The main EuroPro Tour competition will take place from Monday, August 8 to Friday, August 12. On Tuesday, August 9 there will also be a Pro-Am event.

The EuroPro Qualifying School will take place between March 29 and 31.

The club has already hosted Jamega Tour and Trilby Tour events but unlike those events the PGA EuroPro Tour is officially affiliated by the European Tour and the PGA. The event will be broadcast four times on Sky Sports HD and to more than 200 million homes worldwide covering the five main continents.

General manager of Caversham Heath, Matt Ackerman, said: “To attract a PGA EuroPro Tour event to Caversham Heath is reward and recognition of the quality of the course and hard work that all the team have put in to ensure we try and improve year on year.



“Staging the PGA EuroPro Tour not only gives Caversham Heath excellent exposure to a global audience but it raises the profile of the club while being associated with the governing bodies of European Golf.

“The Operations Director from the EuroPro tour who came to assess the course was so impressed with Caversham Heath that they also asked us to host a Q-school event as well as the main event, which we were delighted to do.

“We have no doubt it will provide us with an event to be hugely excited and proud of. We hope it shows viewers and golfers in the area what they could enjoy on a daily basis if they were a member with us.”

Daniel Godding, PGA EuroPro Tour director of operations said: “I absolutely love the golf course and feel it is a real test for our players. Not only it is long, but it is excellently designed and will be a challenge to the very best of Europe’s top young professional golfers.

“Positioned just outside of Reading and close to the M25, logistically it works very well for us and I am really looking forward to the event.”
