A delighted Alistair Booth, executive director at Frilford Heath, said: “It has been a pleasure and a great experience for the club.
“We have learnt so much over the last three years and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the European Tour team and look forward to the next three years.”
It was an easy decision according to Mike Stewart, Qualifying School director said: “We are always enthusiastically received whenever we visit the club and they continue to make every effort to ensure that the tournament is a success.
“The Red Course is acknowledged as one of the of the best in the country. It is not a surprise that there is an overwhelming demand from players seeking to secure this as their preferred qualifying venue.”
