Major golf tournament in honor of Hans Christian Andersen postponed.

By Mette Norup - H.C. Andersen 2005 - 22 February 2003

The Odense Eventyr Golf Club's plans to mark the 200th anniversary of Hans Christian Andersen's birth in 2005 with a European Tour golf tournament have been postponed a year.  The intent was to arrange a tournament in which Thomas Bjørn and other major golf stars would participate.

The reason for the postponement is that another golf tournament has been planned for the same year at Simons Golf Course in northern Zealand. Denmark is still too small a country to have two major golfing events in the same year. 

If the Odense Eventyr Golf Club is to be the setting for a professional golf tournament, it will not be until 2006, writes the newspaper Fyens Stiftstidende.
