Details of the national qualifying event for the 2013 Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship have been announced.

The National Qualifying Open will take place at Nailcote Hall on July 8, with the TP Tour administering and sanctioning the event.

This year, the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship carries a prize fund of £100,000 – double what was on offer in 2012.

“We are excited to be able to host the qualifying event in association with the TP Tour and also to welcome the TP Tour’s ambassador, former European No.1 Ronan Rafferty, to Nailcote Hall,” said event chairman and Nailcote Hall owner Rick Cresman.

There will be a maximum of six spots on offer at the qualifying event of July 8.

The likes of Tony Jacklin, Ian Woosnam and Sam Torrance will all be teeing it up at the Par 3 Championship, which takes place from August 6-9.

This winner of this year’s Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship – organised by Champions (UK) plc – will take home a cheque for £25,000.
