The Scottish Hydro Challenge has enhanced its reputation as one of the most lucrative tournaments on the Challenge Tour schedule after increasing its prize fund for the 2011 edition to €220,000.
The tournament, which receives crucial, much-valued investment from EventScotland as part of the national events agency’s ongoing support of The European, Challenge, Senior and Ladies European Tours ahead of The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, is in its sixth year and returns to the magnificent Macdonald Spey Valley Golf Course in Aviemore for the third season running.
It is also the third year Scottish Hydro have been title sponsors, and the event has in the last two seasons produced ‘home’ winners in Scottish duo Jamie McLeary, in 2009, and George Murray.
The Scottish Hydro Challenge, taking place from June 23 – 26, falls under the year of Active Scotland banner, an initiative aiming to raise the profile of the country as an active nation and holiday destination and promote the benefits of sport and activity to Scottish people and visitors.
The Macdonald Spey Valley Golf Course is the perfect venue to showcase Scotland’s superb countryside and inspire others to be active – be it playing golf or just being outdoors and appreciating the surroundings.
