With a prize fund of almost £28,000, the 2022 PGA Assistants Championship will be held at Royal Cromer Golf Club from 26 – 28 July.

Royal Cromer Golf Club is no stranger to championship golf, having hosted the Ladies' British Open Amateur Championship in 1905 and the English U16 Girls’ Championship more recently in 2015.

This year, the Norfolk club is set to host the PGA Assistants Championships. From 26 – 28 July, 144 PGA Professional Golfers will compete for a prize fund of almost £28,000 and a place in the PGA playoffs.

The field includes three women – Sarah Attwood (Bury St Edmunds), Megan Simmons (Purley Downs) and Taylor White (East Kilbride) – and Royal Cromer's resident PGA Assistant, Mitch Smith.

Club Captain, Peter Wenham commented: “We welcome the PGA and the PGA Assistants from across the country. We are so proud to be selected to host this most prestigious event which pre-dates the US Masters by four years.

"It is particularly pleasing to see 3 female Assistants taking part too as the club is an advocate of the Women in Golf Charter.”

Mark Heveran, Course Manager added: “Dry, fast and firm fairways and greens mean that the course will play at its most natural as we head into the tournament. Recent years have seen a number of changes to the course and will present a real challenge to the competitors as they step back in time to play some of the most natural and historic surfaces in Norfolk.”

“We're confident that players, officials and all spectators will have a memorable experience at Royal Cromer Golf Club. We wish all those competing the very best of luck,” said Club Chairman, Jim Milligan.
