Brocket Hall’s Melbourne Course

The LET Access Series has announced a new event on the 2022 calendar with the Rose Ladies Open, which will take place this September.

Following on from the success and growth of the Rose Ladies Series over the past few years, Kate and Justin Rose felt it was a natural and necessary progression to increase their support of the professional ladies game with a tournament on the LET Access Series. As such, the Rose Ladies Open is the next step on the journey.

Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire will play host to the 54-hole stroke play tournament from 23-25 September, which will boast a prize fund of €65,000 – the largest prize fund on the Access Series this season outside of the Grand Final. 

A field of 108 players will be teeing it up on the par-72 Melbourne Course, which was designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark.“We are really excited to announce the Rose Ladies Open,” said said Kate & Justin Rose. “Building on the success of the Rose Ladies Series, we wanted to continue growing and developing the ladies’ professional game by creating this new tournament, as part of the LET Access Series.“Our motivation remains the same: we want to give the female professionals more opportunities to play competitively; provide them the chance to compete for larger prize funds; provide opportunities to be seen and receive the exposure they deserve, so that we can continue to work towards change and the drive for equality and help provide the pathway to the Ladies European Tour.”

The addition of the Rose Ladies Open to the LETAS schedule in 2022 means there are now 19 events on the 2022 calendar with the total prize money for the season reaching €850,000.

Michael Longshaw, Chief Executive of IG&RM and Managing Director of Brocket Hall said: “We are very proud to support the Rose Ladies Open and to be part of the drive to grow the game through championing new opportunities for women in golf.  Being a venue partner and hosts of the first Rose Ladies Open is a great privilege. We are looking forward to welcoming some of the future stars of the game and celebrating their achievements in September.”

Tickets for the event will be free, with registration details to follow.
