2009 European Tour Schedule

The European Tour schedule, with its new "Race to Dubai" moniker - (is it just me or does it sound a bit like an episode of The Wacky Races - "... the Ant Hill Mob enter the first bend ahead of Dick Dastardly and Darren Clark in his turbo powered golf buggy in this ultimate Race to Dubai...").

Anyway for marketing purposes here is the list. Fraser Cromarty and Lee Derrick from Golf Tourism Scotland are currently working with VisitScotland and EventScotland in scheduling key golf tourism marketing activity for the events next year in key and developing markets. If you've any thought s please comment below.
