Challenge Tour heads to Euram Bank Open in July

The Euram Bank Open will once again be played at the stunning Golf Club Adamstal, which successfully hosted the European Tour’s return to golf in 2020 as it formed the second half of the Austrian Swing.

The European Challenge Tour event, which was formed in 2018, last year took on dual-ranking status with the European Tour but will return to its usual slot on the Road to Mallorca from July 15-18, 2021.

In its first edition in 2018, Darius van Driel came through a bunched leaderboard to secure his first victory on the Challenge Tour.

A 71st hole birdie, and a gutsy up and down on the closing par three earned the Dutchman a narrow victory over eventual Challenge Tour Number One Joachim B. Hansen, future European Tour winner David Law and graduate Sean Crocker.

In 2019, Calum Hill secured the first of two wins in three starts on the Challenge Tour when he triumphed at Golf Club Adamstal, before Joël Stalter won his first European Tour title at last year’s dual-ranked event.

Set in the hills of Austria’s alpine foreland, the severely undulating Golf Club Adamstal previously hosted the European Challenge Tour for three years from 2006 - 2008. In 2006, former Ryder Cup player and three-time European Tour winner Rafa Cabrera Bello secured a life-changing victory – his first as a professional.

The Spaniard, known for his fitness, was sure to have been a favourite on the physically demanding layout. The first hole sits at the low point on the mountainous track, while the 18th hole very nearly sits at the golf course’s highest point. Players can often be seen taking in the serene views while catching their breath in between shots.
