The stage has been set up at the London Golf Club, while he is ready to welcome some of the best professional golfers in the world for his long-awaited return to the European tour calendar.
The beautiful 36-hole venue, which boasts two excellent courses designed by Jack Nicklaus – The Heritage and The International – will host the Cazoo Classic, formerly known as the English Open, from Thursday 12 August to Sunday 15 August 2021.
Set just 32 kilometers from the capital and with a stunning 700 acres of countryside providing the perfect backdrop, it represents the fourth and final chapter of the UK Swing this summer, and it will be the club’s first European Tour event since the Volvo World Match be Play Championship seven years ago.
The tournament takes place on the prestigious Heritage Course of London Golf’s Club, a prestigious UK course and is regularly regarded as one of the country’s top 100 courses, where the professionals have to navigate carefully through the professionals during the week while fight it for the coveted title and € 1,273,320 prize fund.
The players strive to follow in the footsteps of previous winners – and some of the most successful players in the history of the European tour – such as Colin Montgomerie, Lee Westwood, Darren Clarke, Ian Woosnam and Mark James.
As a course for members, the Heritage is of course kept in a fantastic condition throughout the year. But the final preparations are well underway with the Greenkeeping team of the London Golf Club to make the course look its best. It has been completely closed to members since Wednesday, more than a week before the tournament, so they can give extra care and attention, especially around the USGA greens.
London Golf Club chief executive Stephen Follett said: ‘Months of preparation, behind the scenes and on the course, are finally underway and we can’t wait to welcome the players and fans to our club next week.
‘Although we have a lot of experience in hosting tournaments of this magnitude, I am incredibly proud of what the team has achieved, given the circumstances and challenges we have faced over the past year or so.
‘The track looks amazing — probably the best condition ever. I must pay tribute to our excellent green container team who have worked tirelessly to maintain and exceed extraordinary standards.
“The excitement builds and we look forward to a fantastic week of golf, and if the prediction is right, the sun will shine too.”
