Jack Stein launches exciting partnership with major golf tournament

The Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship has welcomed its latest event partner; Jack Stein for next year’s event.

Jack, Chef Director at the Rick Stein Group, will bring his unwavering passion for food to the 2020 Championship staged at Trevose Golf and Country Club.

Coming on board as an event partner, the relationship combines Jack’s love of food and golf with the chef placing pop-up street food stalls around the Championship Course at Trevose.

As well as this, Jack will be working with the team of chefs at Trevose to create a specially designed menu for the Pro-Am dinner which takes place following the opening day’s play on the 18th June 2020. Here, Staysure Tour players and their amateur teams will be treated to a wonderful meal inspired by Jack’s own style of cooking as they enjoy the night’s prizegiving and entertainment.

Jack, who is a keen golfer and member at Trevose Golf and Country Club, spoke of his excitement at the combination of two of his passions.

"I am very excited to be working alongside Trevose Golf Club for this event with Champions (UK) plc. I grew up on the headland at Trevose and love it, I have wonderful memories of the golf course and surrounding beaches. I am very much looking forward to working with our friends the Gammon's who run the club, another family business, to make this event a celebration of North Cornwall".

The Rick Stein Group has restaurants in Cornwall based in Padstow, St Merryn, Fistral, Porthleven and Falmouth, as well as in Marlborough, Sandbanks, Winchester and London. In 2013 Jack took on the role of Executive Chef, overseeing the company’s pub, cookery school and restaurants, as well as its brigade of chefs before being promoted to Chef Director in 2017.

Returning between 18–21 June, next year marks the second of a three-year agreement between the tournament and Trevose Golf and Country Club and will see Ryder Cup stars and Major winners go head-to-head for the €50,000 prize that comes with the coveted event title. The total prize fund for the tournament is €200,000.

Once again, the tournament will be organised by leading brand agency Champions (UK) plc and their Director of Sport Tim Munton is delighted to have forged this new partnership.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jack Stein on board with the Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship 2020,” he said.

“It is clear to see that Jack shares the same love and talent for food as his father and it’s great to have him heading up this partnership. The Rick Stein Group are renowned throughout the Cornish region and with Jack’s love of golf the partnership felt a very natural one. We all look forward to his involvement with the event next year and it’s fantastic to have such an iconic Cornish brand associated with the championship. And of course, we can’t wait to sample Jack’s chosen dishes on the course in June!”

Nick Gammon, Managing Director at Trevose Golf & Country Club added: “After the success of last year’s inaugural event we are delighted to have Jack supporting us in 2020.

“Jack has been a member and a friend of Trevose for many years and I’m sure he will put together a wonderful selection of food both out on the course for spectators and for our Pro-Am dinner. His involvement is yet another exciting landmark in the history of this tournament.”
