The Swiss Seniors Open is the longest-running tournament on the Staysure Tour, and has been held annually on the Golf Club Bad Ragaz 18-hole Championship Course since 1997. The Swiss golfing event quickly became the most popular tournament among professionals aged over 50. Its popularity is also owed due to the course’s location at the heart of a breathtaking Alpine landscape and the unique combination of perfect facilities, friendliness and hospitality the Staysure Tour's golf professionals enjoy during the event.
This year, the tournament format was changed for the first time in its history – it was held in Alliance Pro-Am format, which offers amateurs the chance to take part in a professional tournament under real Tour conditions. In parallel to the traditional stroke-play tournament, a Pro-Am event was played and scored during the first two tournament days, with each team being made up of a Tour professional and an amateur player during both days. As before, the final round on Sunday was played exclusively by the professionals, who were battling it out for the highly coveted Bad Ragaz crystal trophy.
