Swiss Seniors Open in Bad Ragaz

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.

24th Swiss Seniors Open cancelled - next event in July 2021

As a result of the ongoing corona pandemic and the official regulations by the Swiss Federal Council, the organisers of the Swiss Seniors Open have decided to cancel the 24th edition of this popular Staysure Tour event with a heavy heart. This cancellation is a first in the history of the tournament which has been held in Bad Ragaz annually since 1997. The Swiss Seniors Open has long since become a highlight in the calendars of many tour professionals and fans. OC President and Tournament Director Ralph Polligkeit and his team are extremely saddened by this decision but are happy to announce that new dates for next year’s tour event have already been found: the golf professionals will return to Bad Ragaz from July 9th to 11th 2021 to compete for the famous crystal trophy.
