The Legends Tour has confirmed the first part of its 2021 schedule, with 13 tournaments already scheduled for the over-50s circuit in Europe next year.
Riegler & Partner Legends in Austria will kick off the 2021 campaign from May 7-9, following the cancellation of the Tour’s 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, with further events to be added at a later date.
The announcement follows the ground-breaking joint venture between Staysure Group CEO Ryan Howsam and the European Tour earlier this year, when Howsam acquired a controlling stake in the Staysure Tour which was rebranded as the Legends Tour.
Mark Aspland, Head of the Legends Tour, said: “We have been extremely excited to announce this schedule after the cancellation of our 2020 Schedule and we cannot wait to begin again next year.
“We have used the time productively to strengthen our schedule for 2021 and give our members as many playing opportunities as possible. We have a fantastic mix of old and new events and we are looking forward to visiting places we know well and venues and territories that are new to many of us.
“We will be concluding the 2021 season with the Indian Ocean Swing Tour Championship events and we are working hard to add events through the season, particularly in the Autumn. Further announcements will be made early in 2021.”
Former Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley will welcome the Legends Tour to Ireland for the first time since 2010 when the Irish Legends Presented by The McGinley Foundation takes place in Donegal at the stunning Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort from August 20-22.
The Scottish Senior Open Hosted by Paul Lawrie will take place in September, where the 1999 Open Champion will look to defend his maiden over-50s title, with the date and venue for the event yet to be confirmed.
Jersey will host an over-50s event for the first time since 2016 with the ICL Jersey Legends at La Moye Golf Club from June 5-6, while the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship moves from London Golf Club to Formby Golf Club.
