Seville Open to debut on European Tour
The Seville Open in Spain will make its debut on the European Tour schedule from April 15-18, the tour announced on Monday.
The tournament, which will offer prize money of 1 million euros ($1.23 million), will be played at Seville's Real Golf Club, which is also the venue for the 2004 WGC-World Cup of Golf from November 18-21.
"It is a great honour to have the best players of the European Tour come to Sevilla...after all the improvements which are being carried out, under the supervision of the course designer Jose Maria Olazabal, for the World Cup later this year," Real Golf Club chief executive Claudia Hernande said in a statement.
The 7,140-yard, par-72 layout, located at Montequinto three kilometres south of Seville, was designed by twice U.S. Masters champion Olazabal and opened in 1992.
