The Trilby Tour Matchplay, singles and pairs, will now take place at Rockliffe Hall on Monday 2nd September as part of the Trilby Tour series, and will feature players from all over the UK with around 40 players taking part.

William Hunt, Trilby Tour founder, said: “This year’s Trilby Tour Grand Final at Rockliffe Hall was a great success.

It’s a fantastic venue with incredible facilities and offers one of the most challenging courses in the UK.”

Nick Holmes, MD of Rockliffe Hall, added: “It’s a really exciting time for golf in the North East. We’re attracting hundreds of people from all over the UK.

We’re now looking forward to the English Senior Open which will take place in October and is a real coup for us.”

Last week it was announced that the PGA had chosen to hold The English Senior Open at Rockliffe Hall both this year and next, which attracts names such as Ian Woosnan and Sam Torrance.

Ten thousand spectators are expected during the three day event which takes place from Friday 4th until Sunday 6th October.
