European Seniors head for Caribbean in 2000

The European Seniors Tour will break new ground in the new Millennium when it stages an event in the Caribbean for the first time.

The Royal Westmoreland Barbados Open will be held from March 29 to April 1. The top 40 European Seniors Tour players will play alongside 80 amateurs. The professionals will be playing for a prize fund of £100,000 over a three-day 54-hole championship.

Seniors Tour managing director Andy Stubbs said: "This is an exciting new addition to our growing schedule of destinations and is an excellent start to a busy Millennium season."

Andrew White, Managing Director of White Sports Marketing Ltd, the promoters of the event, said “As a company we feel that this event provides Royal Westmoreland and The Barbados Tourism Authority with an opportunity to show the golfing world that Barbados is fast developing into a world class golf destination.”
