The Legends Tour heads to Trump International Links in Aberdeenshire for the first time when the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship takes place next week.

An array of golfing greats will be teeing up at the highly regarded links course, designed by Dr Martin Hawtree.

Two-time Masters champion and Ryder Cup legend Jose Maria Olazabal, who helped Europe to victory against the United States as a captain and as a player, is in the field for next week’s event, which runs from Wednesday to Sunday.

The 57-year-old, a 23-time winner on the European Tour, will be one of Luke Donald’s vice-captains when the 2023 Ryder Cup gets under way in Rome next month.

Tom Lehman, the 1996 Open champion and 2006 USA Ryder Cup captain, is also heading to Aberdeen for the Legends Tour’s flagship tournament.

Michael Campbell, who held off a charging Tiger Woods to claim the 2005 US Open title, and Ian Woosnam, the 1991 Masters champion and 2006 European Ryder Cup captain, are also in the star-studded line-up..

Aberdeen’s very own Paul Lawrie, the 1999 Open champion, will be hoping to put his local knowledge of the Trump course to good use as he goes in search of a fourth title on the Legends Tour.

Brazilian bids to defend title

Adilson da Dilva from Brazil won the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship by six strokes when it was held at Formby last year.

The last time the PGA Seniors Championship was held in Scotland was at North Berwick in 1988 when Aussie Peter Thomson won by two shots.

Plenty of famous faces

The action will get under way with the Wapp Celebrity Series on Wednesday with a host of stars from the world of sport and entertainment competing over 18 holes.

Among them will be former Scotland manager Gordon Strachan, a key member of Aberdeen’s 1983 European Cup Winners’ Cup team, former Scotland rugby captain Gavin Hastings and ex-Manchester United and England striker Teddy Sheringham.

Broadcaster Dan Walker, film star James Nesbitt and snooker legend Stephen Hendry will also be among the famous faces teeing up.

Athletics legend Kriss Akabusi, Scottish curling royalty Eve Muirhead and former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler will be hitting the fairways, too.

Tickets and parking details

Adult day tickets are priced at £15, concessions (over-50s) are £10 and entry is free for under-16s.

Season passes for the week are also available.

Tickets can be purchased from the Legends Tour website.
