The European Seniors Tour will launch its 14th season with the now traditional "Caribbean Swing" on the islands of Barbados and Tobago in March.

A brand new venue will be The Heritage at Killenard, Ireland, for the AIB Irish Seniors Open, while Collingtree Park in Northampton hosts The Mobile Cup.

Managing director Andy Stubbs said: "The Tour promises to deliver another season of great opportunity for both our new and existing members.

"It has seen great stability over recent years with a constant 20 weeks of competition from March until October."

The venue for the tour's richest event, the Senior British Open, has yet to be announced. It has been at Royal County Down, Turnberry and Royal Portrush the last three years.
