The Quay Hotel and Spa ready to host the Senior Golf Tour stars
Golf’s greatest legends come to The Quay 24th-26th August
The Quay Hotel and Spa will be welcoming some of golf’s greatest legends after the announcement that it was to be the Official Hotel of the Speedy Services Wales Senior Open, which takes place at Conwy Golf Club from August 24th-26th.
The Speedy Services Wales Senior Open
The Speedy Services Wales Senior Open is expected to attract the leading names on the European Senior Tour and will have a prize fund of £250,000, with Welsh hero Ian Woosnam lined up to take part.
The former World Number One and Masters Tournament Champion will be hoping to atone for the disappointment of his experience the last time Conwy Golf Club hosted the tournament in 2008, when Englishman Peter Mitchell finished two shots clear of The 2006 Ryder Cup Captain.
Woosnam will be staying in The Quay Hotel during his time at the Speedy Services Wales Senior Open and is sure to be joined by a host of stars, with fellow former Ryder Cup stars Mark James, Barry Lane and Sam Torrance all regulars on the Senior Tour. Mark Mouland is another Welshman expected to be in the field as his search for a second Senior Tour title continues, following his win at the Belas Clube de Campo Senior Open last year.
The return of the Wales Senior Open to the Senior Tour schedule came through a £5 million agreement between the Welsh Government, The European Tour and the R&A, a deal which also means that The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex will be played in Wales for the first time in 2014.
The world wide interest in this Seniors Tour will be a great boost for golf’s profile in the UK, reaching an ever increasing band of staunch supporters and players. However, the impact on the tourism benefits for Wales and particularly the Conwy area, could also be significant and very much welcomed. This area of North Wales gives the visitor a wide choice of activities from water sports, hiking, mountaineering to more relaxed pursuits – strolling around the medieval town of Conwy and its Castle, visiting the award-winning National Trust Bodnant Gardens and exploring the Victorian town of nearby Llandudno.
The Quay Hotel and Spa in Deganwy provides a perfect base from which to experience and enjoy all the area has to offer. The hotel also provides for those not wishing to venture any further than the luxury and comfort at The Quay – select a spa treatment, unwind and step off the world, indulge in a Traditional Welsh Afternoon Tea, or treat yourself to a special meal from the Restaurant, Bar or Terrace menus with tempting dishes created by their Executive Head Chef from the fresh and abundant local produce available to The Quay from local suppliers. The Senior Tour is a splendid opportunity to relish and appreciate the fantastic golfing prowess of sportsmen from the recent past, but also to take advantage of the stunning location and amenities of The Quay Hotel and Spa – Conwy Golf Course can actually be seen from The Quay, across the water.
