Tunisia ready for National Open
Port El Kantoui golf course is ready to welcome the Alps Tour for the second edition of the Tunisian Open. Englishman Josh Loughrey (picture-left) won the inaugural Open in 2015 and it was his good luck charm as he sealed a second place at final ranking to earn the right to play on Challenge Tour this season.
The course is in great shape and players are looking forward to testing themselves as the weather forecast is said to be windy. The golf is on the banks of the Mediterranean Sea and it became very challenging. With 70 000 € prize money, Tunisian Open is the richest regular event of the schedule. The winner will received more than 10 000 €.
France’s Franck Daux, current leader of the Alps Tour, already recorded two wins this season. He won back to back events in Egypt last February to secure a 1000 point advantage over England’s Matt Wallace. The latter, thanks to his win during third event in Egypt, played on Challenge Tour last week and finished at 26th place. He arrived in Tunisia full of confidence about his game.
