The Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scottish Senior Open will return to the ‘Home of Golf’ for the second consecutive year when Fairmont St Andrews hosts the 18th edition of the event from August 20-22, 2010.
Srixon Sports Europe, the leading golf manufacturer which operates both the Cleveland and Srixon brands in Europe, will continue as title sponsor until 2011 as part of a three year deal which began last year, while a new two year agreement will see the tournament return to the Sam Torrance-designed course at Fairmont St Andrews, which reopened in the summer following a £17million revamp.
The Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scottish Senior Open is one of the longest running events on the Senior Tour and will form an integral part of the 2010 schedule, a month after The Senior Open Championship presented by MasterCard returns to Scotland when it is played at Carnoustie from July 22-25.
Ben Davis, UK/North Europe Marketing Manager for Cleveland Golf, said: “Cleveland Golf/ Srixon are delighted to return to the Fairmont St Andrews in 2010 and 2011 and reaffirm the Scottish Senior Open as a significant part of the schedule. We hope that it will be an even bigger success than 2009.”
Charles Head, General Manager of Fairmont St Andrews, said: “It is a great pleasure to have many of golf's icons, including our own Sam Torrance, returning to Fairmont St Andrews in 2010 and 2011.
“The return of the Cleveland/Srixon Scottish Open will be a wonderful climax to a very exciting season. We are delighted to have the Senior Tour back with us on The Torrance Course for the next two years, which will also play host to Local Final Qualifying for The Open Championship, and I am sure many of the players are looking forward to a return to the Home of Golf.”
