Taking place between August 12-14, The Legends Trophy will see some of the game’s most decorated players visit the Hertfordshire venue as they compete in what will be the third UK tournament held in the month of August.
Two-time DP World Tour winner Simon Khan – who famously won the 2010 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth with a one-shot victory over fellow Englishman Luke Donald and Swede Fredrik Andersson Hed – will host the event as he welcomes his fellow Legends Tour players to his home course.
Khan said: “Hanbury Manor was one of the original new courses – a Jack Nicklaus-design back in the early 1990s. There are a lot of exciting holes on the course, and it should bring a lot of entertainment.
“I am looking forward to raising my level and being in contention to win. I didn’t really have that last year; maybe in one event in the Seychelles but that was it. I want to have that feeling again and that is why we play.
“What I am really looking forward to is everyone coming to play my home course and having it set up really well. If everyone comes away and has enjoyed themselves – hopefully I play well and beat them all as well – that would be great.”
Originally designed by Harry Vardon before being redesigned by Jack Nicklaus II, the parkland course at Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel & Country Club stretches over 7,000 yards and offers a true challenge to any golfer. A previous host of a number of tournaments including the English Open and the Ladies European Open, The Legends Trophy will be the first major international tournament the par-72 course has hosted since the DP World Tour’s English Championship in 2020.
Tickets will be sale for the event from Friday, May 19 at 9am, with an early booking promotion available. Adult tickets cost £10, with over 50s at £7.50 and juniors (under 16s) receiving free entry.
Phil Harrison, Legends Tour chief executive officer, said: “Since our Legends Tour rebranding in 2020, our ambition has been to keep growing. The introduction of The Legends Trophy is another example of just that.
“We are delighted to be bringing major international golf back to Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel & Country Club and are extremely pleased that Simon Khan has agreed to host at his home course. The whole event promises to be a great few days of golf, so I would encourage everyone who can to head down and see some great golf.”
The upcoming Legends Tour season promises to be the biggest since its rebranding in 2020, with larger fields, record-breaking prize funds and new venues hosting major events like Trump International Golf Links Aberdeen and Seapoint Golf Links – a rising star in the ranks of Irish links courses just an hour north of Dublin.
Last year, former Ryder Cup captains and Major winners including Paul McGinley, Paul Lawrie, Michael Campbell, Ian Woosnam and Thomas Bjorn all competed on the Legends Tour as South African James Kingston secured the Legends Tour Order of Merit to win the John Jacobs Trophy.
