Thursday 28th October saw the first day of the Andalusian Masters tournament at Valderrama, marking the start of the last European Tour event in Spain for the golf season.

The three million euro event continues until Sunday 31st October 2010, before the Dubai World Championships end the season in November.

This is the first Andalusian Masters, which joins the Andalucia open as one of Spains grandest golf tournaments, having been announced by the President of Valderrama Golf Club last December. “This event could, over the years, establish itself as one of the “not  to miss” tournaments on the European Tour Calendar”, he said.

The Valderrama Club, which played host to the Volvo Masters for 21 years, is the choice venue for the new event, in which 96 players battle for the first ever Andalusian Masters trophy, watched by a crowd of thousands.
