In the event of a tie for the first place there will be a hole-by-hole play-off.
The Prize Presentation will be held on the 18th green upon the conclusion of play.
(Approximately 17:30 – 17:45) on Sunday 2nd July

We’re delighted to have the great Justin Rose, former US Open winner and 2016 Olympic champion, competing this week. He’s unsurprisingly been installed as our pre-tournament ‘fav.’
And of course there’s our host, the six-time Major champion and Ryder Cup legend Sir Nick Faldo. One of European golf’s finest-ever players. Period.
It should be a thriller.
So much to look forward to – have a listen to what Justin and our very own Fred Done have to say, below. Fred is absolutely delighted to be here, hard on the heels of the Betfred Epsom Derby and Oaks meeting, and of course Royal Ascot, where Betfred is the official bookmaker. Exciting times indeed.
