Preview | The COBRA PUMA NXT LVL Championship

The PGA EuroPro Tour is well into the new season with a trip to Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa to play the Championship course for The COBRA PUMA NXT LVL Championship this week. 

Set in the heart of Cheshire, Tarporley, the Championship course is set to offer a real test for the players with lakes coming into play and waterfalls plus a monster of a par 5 on the third. 

Last week was an enduring week for many with Open qualifying followed up by the trip up to Morpeth for The Motocaddy Masters at Macdonald Linden Hall County Golf Club where Andrew Wilson came out on top on the final day. 

No fewer than six players tied for second on nine under showcasing how high the standard is on the tour this year with the cut made at one under after day two.
