Dame Laura Davies will host the Thorpeness LET Pro Am at the end of the month.
The August 29-31 event, which is in it’s 3rd year, will feature 18 players from the Ladies European Tour playing alongside amateur partners for two rounds, followed by a pro fourball betterball, winner takes all shoot-out.
Host Davies will be partnered by fellow LET tour legend Trish Johnson - between them the pair have won over 100 tournaments worldwide and appeared in 20 Solheim Cup matches.
Meghan MacLaren, who won the first event at Thorpeness, will be partnered by Becky Brewerton, and among the other professionals taking part will be Lydia Hall and Becky Morgan from Wales.
This year’s event has a truly international flavour...Beth Allen from the USA, Whitney Hillier (New Zealand), Laura Fuenfstueck (Germany) and Amy Walsh (Australia) will all be making their first visit to the outstanding Suffolk venue.
The tournament is organised by Thorpeness Golf Club’s Director of Golf and LET Founder Member, Christine Langford who commented: “Since we started the Pro Am in 2017 the event has grown in popularity with members and pro-am participants. I am thrilled that Laura is taking part this year, it’s very special for all of us involved, and we can’t wait to see her and the other professionals playing at Thorpeness.”
Thorpeness is a James Braid design, a coastal heathland layout wonderfully located a thumping drive from the Suffolk Coast near Aldeburgh and features in the Top 100 courses in the UK.
