Kate and Justin Rose continue to show their commitment to women's professional golf as Rose Ladies Open returns to the LETAS schedule
Following on from the huge success of the inaugural Rose Ladies Open in 2022, the Roses are delighted to announce that the tournament will once again return to Brocket Hall at the earlier date of 7-9 September in 2023.
Kate and Justin have secured Brocket Hall as hosts for the next 2 years, working together with the venue to build on the solid foundations of the 2022 tournament and make the 2023 event bigger and better.
Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire, England will play host to the 54-hole stroke play tournament which will boast an increased prize fund of €70,000; the largest prize fund this season on the LET Access Series.
A field of 108 players will be teeing it up on the par-72 Melbourne Course, which opened in June 1992 and is the handiwork of former Ryder Cup golfers Peter Alliss and Clive Clark.
“We are really excited to return to Brocket Hall for the Rose Ladies Open! Building on the success of 2022, we are looking forward to working with Brocket Hall and all our valued sponsors to continue growing and developing the ladies’ professional game by providing additional playing opportunities, as part of the LET Access Series,” said Kate & Justin Rose.
“It is important for us to continue to provide these opportunities for female professionals to play competitively; creating more opportunities for everyone to see, experience and support ladies professional golf here in the UK. In everything we do within Ladies professional golf, we are working towards change, pushing for equality; and with this tournament, providing the players on the Access Series with a pathway through to the Ladies European Tour.”
Paul McDonnell, Director, Excel Sports Management Europe, added: “We at Excel Sports Management are delighted to be returning to Brocket Hall for the next couple of years, giving us the chance to work together alongside sponsors such as American Golf, Computacenter, Oil Brokerage, The R&A and BMW to deliver this fantastic tournament on the 2023 LETAS schedule. Brocket Hall is an amazing venue which shares our vision of supporting and growing the ladies’ professional game.”
Michael Longshaw, Chief Executive of IG&RM and Managing Director of Brocket Hall said: “As a long-term supporter of ladies golf here at Brocket Hall, myself and the team are delighted with the news that the Rose Ladies Open will return to the estate for the next two years. It is tremendous honour to be the venue chosen for such an important tournament on the LET Access Series. We will ensure that the Melbourne Course is in the best condition possible for the week of the competition and that we provide our usual warm welcome to all of the event competitors when they arrive at Brocket Hall.”
