The Cleveland Golf / Srixon Scottish Senior Open will return to Fairmont St Andrews for a third consecutive year from August 19-21, when former Ryder Cup player Barry Lane will defend his title.
Lane captured his maiden European Senior Tour title over the Torrance Course last year, completing a Scottish double 22 years after also winning his first of five European Tour titles in the land where golf was born in the 1988 Scottish Open.
With both The Open Championship and The Senior Open Championship being played in the south of England this summer, the Cleveland Golf / Srixon Scottish Senior Open will be one of the premiere fixtures on the Scottish golfing calendar.
Andy Stubbs, Managing Director of the European Senior Tour, said: “The Cleveland Golf / Srixon Scottish Senior Open is one of the longest running tournaments on the Senior Tour and is a title that is much sought after among our players."
The event is once again being supported by EventScotland, the national events agency. Chief Operating Officer Paul Bush OBE commented: “The Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scottish Senior Open has been on our portfolio of events since we were established back in 2003 so we have been part of its growth over the years.
“Fairmont St Andrews provides a wonderful setting to showcase Scotland as ‘The Home of Golf’ to the many visitors attending or those watching the coverage around the world.”
