The Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final supported by The R&A will return to Club de Golf Alcanada in 2022, having previously held the event back in 2019 which saw Italian Francesco Laporta win the Rolex Grand Final and Road to Mallorca Rankings double.
The final event of this year’s Road to Mallorca schedule will take place from November 3-6, 2022, as players look to secure one of the coveted 20 DP World Tour cards for 2023.
The European Challenge Tour has historically produced a plethora of golfing stars, including 2018 Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjørn, 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson and two-time Ryder Cup player Tommy Fleetwood.
The stunning Alcanada course, based in the north of the Balearic Island of Mallorca, measures 6,499 metres and offers eye catching views of the lighthouse in the Bay of Alcúdia. The coastal layout, which weaves between the hills and the groves, was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr.
Kristoff Both, Club de Golf Alcanada’s Director of Golf, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be hosting the Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final supported by The R&A again in 2022. It was a huge success the first time it was here in 2019, and we can’t wait to have all of the players and fans here once more.
“The course has been looking brilliant all year and we know that will be the same come November 2022, so that we can see the best possible golf from the talented players. We thank the European Challenge Tour for the honour to host such an event again!”
