De Vere venues awarded International Pairs Qualifiers & Finals
February 2, 2010

Seven of De Vere’s championship venues across the UK have won the right to host events in the 2010 International Pairs series, including national qualifiers, the UK Grand Final and the prestigious World Final.

The layout, conditioning and resort facilities at the De Vere venues, as well as their locations around the UK, were highlighted as factors in awarding UK qualifying events to Slaley Hall in Northumbria, Oulton Hall in Yorkshire, Belton Woods in Lincolnshire, Mottram Hall in Cheshire and Wokefield Park in Berkshire. In addition, the championship layout at Wychwood Park will host the UK Final while the stunning Carrick on Loch Lomond resort has been awarded the World Final.

Host to the 24th PGA Cup matches in September 2009, as well as the Ladies European Tour in 2007 and 2008, The Carrick on Loch Lomond is no stranger to top class competition, and the World Final of the International Pairs will see golfers from across the world descend on the award-winning Scottish resort, which is also home to the 5-star Cameron House Hotel and luxurious spa within its grounds.

Named host venue for the 2010 UK Final, Wychwood Park has also seen its reputation as a tournament venue grow in recent years. A PGA EuroPro Tour venue for the last three years, the testing Cheshire layout will receive the European Tour qualifying school in 2010, joining an elite list of courses to welcome some of Europe’s finest professionals. At over 7,000 yards from the Championship tees, Wychwood Park is a thorough test of every aspect of a player's game.

Daniel Hodson, Director of Golf and Leisure for De Vere, commented, “We are thrilled to have won the right to host the International Pairs qualifiers and Finals, which are a great addition to our championship schedule for 2010. We have hosted some high profile professional championships in recent years, and the International Pairs series really validates our courses as a fair and true test to golfers of all abilities. I am sure golfers from across the world will have a fantastic time at The Carrick on Loch Lomond for the World Final, and I wish every player the best of luck!”

The International Pairs Series has grown in stature since its inception in 1998, with the event becoming one of the leading amateur golf series in the world. Over 300 UK clubs are expected to enter their winners into regional qualifiers, from where the top-3 finishers will progress to the UK National Final at Wychwood Park. The winners of each ‘National Final’ from around the world will then compete at The Carrick on Loch Lomond and attempt to win the coveted International Pairs 2010 trophy.
