IS24 UK 900 Announcement 1920X1080 V13

We are extremely excited to announce that world-class golf is coming to Foxhills this summer following our selection as host venue for the International Series England from 8th-11th August 2024, an Asian Tour pathway to the LIV Golf League.

The International Series (IS) is a set of 10 elevated tournaments that take place across the globe, with some of the world's best golfers going head-to-head for a $2m purse at each event. Household names such as Brooks Koepka, Cameron Smith, Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Henrik Stenson were part of a star-studded list that competed on the IS in 2023, with Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Louis Oosthuizen and Joaquin Niemann confirmed to play the series in 2024. The season's International Series Order of Merit champion claims a coveted place on the following season’s LIV Golf League.

The series has so far held 18 events in 13 world-class venues across Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, providing opportunities for more than 153 amateur or regional players to gain invaluable experience competing against elite-level fields including LIV Golf stars and the very best of the Asian Tour. The 48 nationalities competing over the two seasons further supports the global appeal of the event which has 39 international broadcasters across more than 105 broadcast territories. 

Rahul Singh, Head of The International Series, said: “Returning to England for a third successive year underscores the continued growth and success of The International Series brand, and the prominent position that we now occupy in the global golfing ecosystem.

“As we have seen over the past two seasons, players from the Asian Tour and around the world love competing at the iconic locations The International Series travels to, and we are delighted to partner with Foxhills on such a fitting venue, to again deliver elite-level sport at a wonderful golfing destination.

“Bringing The International Series to Foxhills offers us a real opportunity to showcase the allure of our product to a cosmopolitan, sports-loving population in and around the London area.”

International Series England will be played on the esteemed Longcross course, which consistently features in the UK top 100 rankings.

Combining parkland and heathland-style holes with a tree-lined layout featuring a number of eye-catching elevated tees, the course will provide a stern test for the elite field around 18 beautiful holes surrounded by Scots pine, beech and silver birch.

Foxhills also boasts the Bernard Hunt championship course as well as a par-three nine-hole Manor Course.

Foxhills Managing Director, Tej Walia, said: “It’s an honour to host a world-class event of this nature at Foxhills, showcasing our venue and the talent of professionals at the very top of their game.

“We have been working hard on elevating our product, both on and off the course, to position us as an attractive proposition for professional tournaments and brand partnerships. The selection as host venue is testament to the hard work of our team over the past few years and the investment of our owners to allow us to set new goals.

“The growth of the Asian Tour and The International Series has been ambitious and we are excited to be the next chapter of its journey as we look to take it to new heights for both the players and spectators, making it a marquee event on the schedule at Foxhills.

“With the size of the purse, our accessible location for international players and the reward of a place for the Series winner in next year’s LIV Golf League, we’re looking forward to seeing a strong field and an exciting week of golf on our newly renovated Longcross course.”
