Barbados has added a “thrilling addition” to its golfing calendar with the inaugural ‘Barbados Legends hosted by Ian Woosnam’ this year.

Scheduled from May 3rd to 5th, the tournament will host golfers at Apes Hill Barbados, under the stewardship of golf legend, Ian Woosnam, the 1991 Masters Champion.

The principal sponsor for the event is Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc (BTMI).

Craig Hinds, Acting Chief Executive Officer of the BTMI, said the organisation was proud to align itself with the tournament.

“It is fitting that the Legends Tour will unfold against the stunning backdrop of Apes Hill, one of Barbados’ top golf courses.

“The Legends Tour, an integral part of the esteemed European Tour Group, has chosen Barbados as the stage for this inaugural event in May.

“This is not merely a golf tournament; it is an opportunity for Barbados to showcase its allure to affluent individuals, hailing from North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Jody Addison, Director of Golf at Apes Hill, confirmed that the venue was fully equipped to welcome top-tier golfers from around the world.

Guests include Michael Campbell, the distinguished 2005 US Open Champion celebrated for his remarkable two-stroke triumph over Tiger Woods.

Executive Chairman of Apes Hill Barbados, Sunil Chatrani, revealed that the team at Apes Hill set out to create a course that both world-class players and amateurs would want to experience time and time again.

“That is why hosting an event on the Legends Tour is a hugely exciting step for us, and we look forward to welcoming iconic players of Ian’s calibre to play our golf course this spring.”

Phil Harrison, CEO of the Legends Tour, said: “The Caribbean has been high on our list since rebranding as the Legends Tour in 2020, and we are delighted to have agreed to host a tournament on this stunning new golf course.”

The event is one of the first stops on schedule for the Legends Tour in 2024.
