The popular KHG Funds Senior Open golf tournament will be sponsored by MBL Financial Services Limited this year. One of the largest Independent Financial Services providers in the Isle of Man, MBL is this year celebrating 28 years in business on the Island. The three round tournament will begin at Douglas Golf Course on July 3, with round two at Rowany on August 7, and the final round at Ramsey on September 4. The 2014 format has changed from last year and, following feedback from participants, will be reverting back to four ball tees times between 8.30am and 2.30pm. Registration will be open on each day from 8am. As in the 2014 tournament, categories will be split into two – Seniors (aged 50-64) and Super Seniors (65+). Prizes will be awarded for best individual score in both the Senior and Super Seniors categories. An addition this year is a separate prize for the best overall ladies’ score. Thanks to the generosity of MBL Financial Services Limited the price to enter this year’s tournament remains £60 per head which includes green fees, refreshments at each event, and a buffet after the final round. There will be a chance to win some excellent prizes and stylish gifts will be presented to all the players that take part.
Matty Evans, MBL Financial Sales Director, said:
“The KHG Funds Senior Open is now firmly established in the Island’s golfing calendar, and we are proud to be supporting this increasingly popular event. Over the years the tournament has seen some great competition and we’re sure that this year will be no exception. We look forward to welcoming back players to the tournament whose loyal support has helped to establish it as one of the best on the Island – but we are always happy to see new participants too.”
KHG Funds is an Isle of Man innovative fund range investment managed by Creechurch Capital – the boutique discretionary fund manager based in Douglas. Stewart Quayle, Senior Business Development Manager at Creechurch Capital, commented:
“We’re delighted that MBL Financial is supporting the KHG Funds Senior Open. The event has gone from strength to strength since the inaugural competition in 2010 which was held to celebrate the launch that year of KHG Funds. Thanks to MBL Financial’s backing, this year’s tournament will be even bigger and better.”
