THE next generation of golfing talent will battle it out for 15 European Tour cards at the Road to Mallorca.
Formerly known as The European Challenge Tour, the tournament is a season-long competition spanning 25 tournaments in 17 countries, which culminates at Club de Golf Alcanada in Mallorca between October 7 to 11.
Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, the golf course will host the top 45 players on the order of merit, with the top 15 earning European Tour cards for the 2020 season.
Since its establishment in 1989, many of the world’s finest players have competed at The European Challenge Tour which is now widely considered to be Europe’s top developmental tour. This has included Thomas Bjørn, Justin Rose, Ian Poulter and Brooks Koepka.
This year, the Federation for Golf in the Balearic Islands announced that the final season tournament will be held in Mallorca over the next four years. This incredible deal moves the season finale away from the Middle East for the first time since 2012 to the Mediterranean – something that has not happened since 2003.
In a strategy is to promote Mallorca as a low season destination, the international impact is expected to be unquestionable.
