Seve Ballesteros Legends Tournament to be held at Pebble Beach
Posted by: Darren Ramowski on Wed 20 Jun 2012
Seve Ballesteros was blessed with one of the most spectacular short games in the history of golf, so it is only fitting that a new event will celebrate this legend with a par-3 tournament in Pebble Beach, one of his favorite golf venues in the world.
The inaugural Seve Ballesteros Legends Tournament, scheduled Nov. 29-Dec. 1 on the venerable Peter Hay Golf Course, will bring together 18 four-player teams of amateur golfers playing for the Legends Trophy in a Ryder Cup-like format. Nine teams from the United States will take on nine European teams in an 18-hole tournament on Thursday, Nov. 29, with each team captained by a well-known celebrity or golfing legend. Play will take place amid a festive environment with live music and DJs, fine food and wine, TV screens broadcasting from around the course and more attractions.
All amateur golfers are invited to participate, with each team member to receive:
- Ground transportation between Monterey Regional Airport (MRY) and Pebble Beach
- Invitation to Opening Night Reception (Wednesday, Nov. 28)
- Four nights lodging (double occupancy) at The Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach
- Participation in the Legends Tournament, including food and beverages throughout the event
- Post-tournament Champagne Reception and Gala Dinner with live entertainment, prizes and charity auction at the exclusive Beach & Tennis Club (Thursday, Nov. 29)
- One round of golf at The Links at Spanish Bay (Friday, Nov. 30)
- One round of golf at Pebble Beach Golf Links (Saturday, Dec. 1)
- Official team golf shirt and luxury goodie bag
- Invitation to Closing Reception (following golf on Dec. 1)
Registration per team of four is $35,000 (£24,000), with fundraising from the Legends Tournament going to the Seve Ballesteros Foundation, which Seve himself set up in partnership with Cancer Research UK in 2009 to raise money for research into brain tumors. Seve was diagnosed with a brain tumor in October 2008 and it took his life less than three years later. Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research.
“I am very happy that Seve’s Foundation will benefit from the Seve Ballesteros Legends Tournament at Pebble Beach this year,” said Ivan Ballesteros, Seve’s nephew who served as his manager. “Seve played at Pebble Beach many times throughout his career and loved its challenges, so it is fitting that a tournament is played there to honor him. Thank you to all the players and celebrities who will come together to make this event a success, helping us raise money and awareness for the foundation in the U.S.”
