GOLFERS at one of the region’s top courses are celebrating after it was named the host venue for this year’s Foremost British Professionals Championship.
The Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf and Spa will welcome up to 120 professionals from all over the UK to its Championship course for the one day event on May 20.
“This is the first time the tournament has ever been held at a resort like Portal and we are extremely excited to have the opportunity to host such a special event,” said Stuart Leech, Golf Manager at the Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf and Spa.
Stuart, who has spent more than 20 years working at golf courses all over the country, was instrumental in bringing the event to Portal after competing in the tournament last year.
“I played in the event last year and could see the potential in moving it forward and playing it on a really fantastic course,” said Stuart.
“We want to create a real tour-like feel and leave a lasting impression on all the professionals that are taking part to really put Portal on the map.”
