Seniors Tour Set For First Visit to Czech Republic in 2008
Carrying a prize fund of €600,000, the Foxconn CZ Open will represent the Seniors Tour’s first visit to the Czech Republic and will be the third richest event on the 2008 Seniors Tour Schedule thanks to the personal support of Foxconn Group founding Chairman, industrialist Terry Gou.
Foxconn Technology Group is the foremost provider of joint design, joint development, manufacturing, assembly and after sales services to global Computer, Communication and Consumer electronics leaders.
Casa Serena Golf Course is one of European Golf Design’s latest and most exciting projects. Designed by Robert Hiseman, Casa Serena is an inland links style layout that will prove a stern test for the Seniors Tour professionals.
Andy Stubbs, Managing Director of the European Seniors Tour, said: “We are delighted to be adding such an exciting new event to the 2008 European Seniors Tour Schedule. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Terry Gou, whose vision and support have made the Foxconn CZ Open a reality, while tournament promoters Jim and Maureen Chang have been instrumental in bringing the tournament to fruition.
“The Foxconn CZ Open will be the Seniors Tour’s first visit to the Czech Republic, but we know from the experience of our European and Challenge Tour colleagues’ past visits to this beautiful country that the Seniors Tour will be guaranteed a warm welcome.”
Terry Gou, Chairman and CEO of Foxconn commented: “I am truly delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with a socially conscious organisation like The PGA European Tour and to be able to witness this prestigious European Seniors Tour event coming to the Czech Republic. There is certainly no better place than Casa Serena Golf Course to host such a significant event.”
