Great news for lovers of golf in and around Sotogrande is the fact that this year’s Valderrama Masters tournament – one of the leading international sports events of its kind in Andalucía – will be hosted at the prestigious Valderrama Golf Club in June.
The hallowed grounds of this most famous of Spanish golf club have, of course, played host to many other major competitions, including the European Tour, Challenge Tour and other international events – as well as the legendary 1997 Ryder Cup!
An annual highlight, however, is the Valderrama Masters, this year in its 19th consecutive edition and one of the top events within Spanish golf. Not surprisingly, then, it is proudly hosted by one of the country’s all-time greats, Sergio García.
A move to June
After years of discussions, the European Golf Circuit finally approved changing the schedule of the tournament from the previous October slot. As of 2019, the Valderrama Masters will now be held between the 26th and 30th of June.
Though the weather is generally very clement in this sunny part of Europe, players and especially spectators will be pleased to experience this classic Sotogrande competition in the breezy sunshine of June instead of late autumn.
In addition, it’s also a less congestion period free of overlap with other major tournaments, leaving more star players free to compete. National heroes such as Rafa Cabrera Bello and Jon Rahm have already confirmed their presence in this event.
June is also considered one of the perfect months for golf tourism in Andalucía, so it´s expected that more viewers will come to enjoy the four days of pure golf. The tickets are already on sale, so hurry up if you want to get an ‘early bird’ ticket at a special price of 65€, which gives you access to the course from Wednesday to Sunday.
