On 8th August 2003 Nigel Mansell turned 50 and was eligible to play on the European Seniors tour. Woodbury Park hosted the inaugural Nigel Mansell Classic PGA Seniors tour just two weeks later on the 22nd August. It was the perfect location for such a prestigious event and delivered all the drama and excitement he had hoped for. So successful was the association with the PGA and acclaim of the competitors and spectators that the second event is to be held again on 8 - 11th July 2004. With competitors including Tony Jacklin, Tommy Horton, last years Woodbury Park winner Mike Miller and of course, Nigel Mansell, it is surely an event not to be missed.
