NEW DELHI: The Hero Indian Open will return to the prestigious and historic Delhi Golf Club for the 2016 edition. The tournament, first held in 1964, will be played from March 17 to 20. The championship will once again be tri-sanctioned by the Indian Golf Union, the Asian Tour and European Tour, and will carry a prize fund of $1.5 million.

The Delhi Golf Club has played host to the Indian Open on 28 occasions since. In 2015, it was won by Anirban Lahiri after a sudden death play-off. That second win in three weeks saw Lahiri move into the world’s top 50, and he has since cemented his place among the world’s golfing elite.

Keith Waters, chief operating officer of the European Tour, said, “We are delighted to be returning to the Delhi Golf Club for the 2016 Hero Indian Open. It is one of many venues which make the European Tour’s international schedule so diverse, and we look forward to being part of another illustrious chapter in its rich history.”
