January 12th 2016, BARCELONA. - The Long Drivers European Tour (LDET) presents the fourth season - the only long drive tour in the world- which will start next 8th and 9th April in Scotland. The Fairmont St Andrews will host the first tournament of LDET, new locations have been added to the LDET tour this year including  including Scotland premieres and Denmark, Austria, Hungary and Portugal. Nine of the ten scenarios have changed; only three countries are repeated from last year´s tour and Czech Republic will returns to the tour after a year of absence.

The Long Drivers European Tour at the “Home of Golf”
The new LDET season will start strong and with lots of emotions at the Fairmont Saint Andrews, which will be the first stop of the season. In Scotland, considered the "Home of Golf", the sport has been practiced for over 600 years and for the first time; Europe's best hitters showcase their talent on the 8th and 9th April.

Five new venues: amazing scenarios
The European tour keeps growing and showcasing the talent on offer to all corners around Europe and will reach new and impressive venues such as Silkeborg Ry Golfklub in Denmark, the largest golf complex in the country wich is the second event on the calendar list next 6th and 7th May.

The long drive show will also stops in Austria at the Diamond Country Club (24th & 25th June), just two weeks before will host a European Tour championship. Hungary will receive Europe´s biggest hitter at the Zala Springs Golf Resort (29th & 30th July), a course designed by the prestigious Robert Jones, one of the best golf course designers. Portugal, named best golf destination 2015 in the world at the World Golf Awards (WGA) will enjoy the crunching of these big hitters at the Belas Clube de Campo (23rd & 24th September)

3 countries, 3 different courses
Along with the new venues, three countries will continue where they left off last year, only in a different course. The first will be Netherlands, which will hold a second season in a row at the start of the summer: 3rd and 4th June at the Amsterdam Old Course. Slovenia will also be part of the circuit and this season the event will take place at the emblematic landscape of the Lake Bled at the Golf Course Bled (19th and 20th August). In Italy, the tour moves to the Garda Golf Club (9th and 10th September) in Solano del Lago, chosen as the best course in the country in the 2015 WGA awards.

Czech Republic will host again one of the tournaments after being absent last year; this season it will be in a course near the capital: Golf Club Praha (8th and 9th July).

The last stop of the season will be the classic THE MASTERS LDET CUP. This final tournament will complete the ten championships and most likely will take place outside the borders of Europe.

Hitters at a high level
The American Maurice Allen will have the challenge to defend the European title champion and to prove again his level against the rest of professional tour hitters. Dewald Lubbe, Frederik Frost, Scott Beaven, Mauro Benaglio or Adrián Sánchez will be, surely, names to consider in a circuit. The LDET consolidates year after year in this specialty golf so Europe will live again the long drive party. The LDET also will continue to pursue the categories of senior, amateur, junior and women in this new season.
