We have now completed the transition from the European Senior Tour to the Staysure Tour, marking an exciting new chapter in our history.

We have much to look forward to in 2018, and I wish to thank our new partners at Staysure as we embark on this landmark partnership with our first ever title sponsor.  My thanks also go to our existing partners, sponsors and tournament hosts as we prepare for the new season.

Our year starts with Qualifying School in Portugal at the end of this month, and the season proper gets under way in the United Arab Emirates in March as the Sharjah Senior Golf Masters presented by Shurooq, becomes the first of a minimum of 19 events on our 2018 schedule.

One of the highlights of the year will undoubtedly be The Senior Open Presented by Rolex, as we watch golf’s superstars take to the Old Course at St. Andrews for the first time in the championship’s history.

We are also delighted to welcome the PGA Seniors Championship back to our schedule, with Staysure taking on the title sponsorship of this prestigious event.

Follow us on social media as we document what will be an exciting 2018 and beyond.
