Superstar Sports are proud to announce the launch of the inaugural Seve Ballesteros Legends Tournament taking place at Pebble Beach from 29th November – 1st December 2012.

Legends Trophy in a Ryder Cup-like format, with each team captained by a
well-known celebrity or golfing legend. Play will take place amid a
festive environment with live music and DJs, fine food and wine, TV
screens broadcasting from around the course and more attractions.
