The Ladies European Tour is delighted to announce that the Turkish Ladies Open will return to the tournament schedule, from 5-9 May 2010.

The second edition of the tournament will again be played at National Golf Club in Belek, Antalya, following a break in 2009.

Alexandra Armas, executive director of the Ladies European Tour, was thrilled to announce the tournament. She said: “We are delighted to be working with Dr Bulent Goktuna on this tournament, which I am sure will be one of the best on our schedule. We are grateful that he and his team at National Golf Club are able to continue their support of the Ladies European Tour allowing our members to compete in this beautiful area of Turkey, which is already known and loved by many. We are all looking forward to returning to Turkey and will make every effort to ensure that the event is a great success.”

National Golf Club has undergone an intensive course conditioning programme recently and will be in prime condition for the second Turkish Ladies Masters, considered one of the premier events by the Ladies European Tour’s star players.

Last year, Sweden’s Lotta Wahlin claimed her maiden tour title by 12 strokes and has since revisited the venue to enjoy its practise facilities, which she considers first class.
