The tournament received hundreds of entries and will hold a qualifying event early in August.

Rockliffe Hall also has a highly-regarded golf academy offering coaching from respected PGA golf professionals and is home to European Touring Professional, Graeme Storm, who regularly plays at the course.

Speaking about his new role, Nick Jennings said: "Rockliffe Hall has an outstanding reputation as one of the best courses in Europe and I'm really excited about joining the passionate, forward-thinking team that has a modern approach to golf. One of my main aims is to build Rockliffe Hall's reputation as a teaching academy for all ages and levels and I hope to bring some well-known players along to offer coaching."

Director of golf at Rockliffe Hall, Ian Knight, added: "Nick has already trained some real champions and has a good reputation in the coaching arena. As well as working on our golf days, Nick will play a major role in strengthening our teaching academy offering and really complements the current team."
