The inaugural Jordan Mixed Open could be “a blueprint for the future of the game”, says former Ryder Cup player Barry Lane.
Lane will be one of the seniors from the Staysure Tour who will compete against Challenge Tour and Ladies’ European Tour players from 4-6 April.
The 123-player field at Ayla Golf Club will compete for a £300,000 prize fund.
The Staysure Tour – formerly known as the European Senior Tour – is played by males aged 50 or over, while the Challenge Tour is the second tier of men’s professional golf in Europe.
Players will tackle the Greg Norman-designed course from different tees depending on the tour they compete on – in 2018 Challenge Tour players drove the ball almost 50 yards further on average than LET players.
