Golfers from across Europe and beyond will pay homage to a golfing legend as Buenavista Golf prepares to host the Seve Ballesteros Memorial Tournament.
The spectacular course in the north-west of Tenerife - designed by the great man himself - already offers a fabulous golf experience at a unique coastal location with stunning views of the imposing cliffs of Teno and the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean acting as the backdrop.
A recent investment programme has also seen 500,000 Euros pumped into the course maintenance and facilities to further enhance those high standards.
But the four-day gathering (June 8-11) promises to live up to his legacy with professionals and amateurs alike following in his footsteps in three competition formats.
Day one kicks off with a special Pro-Am event with professionals teaming up with amateurs in a pairs format. The amateurs then take part in an individual Stableford competition on Saturday June 10 - an event organised by Gambito Golf. The main sponsors are Meliá Hotels International and Tenerife Golf, while media partners Movistar Plus TV and Radio Marca will also be covering the action.
The curtain comes down on what will be a memorable weekend on Sunday June 11 with a Ryder Cup-style contest as a Canary Islands team takes on the UK with professionals Luis Claverie (a former European Tour player from the Canaries) and Britain's Michael McCarthy taking on the captain's roles.
There will also be additional prizes throughout the competitions with a brand new Mini Cooper even up for grabs for a hole in one.
Packages to play in the tournament start at 523 Euros per person, including three nights' accommodation, welcome cocktail, participation at the Pro-Am (Friday June 9) and the Open (Saturday June 10) as well as prize-giving Gala dinner.
All players must be aged over 18 years old and have a recognised official playing handicap with upper limits of 26 for men and 36 for women.
