Round one | London
$1M prize fund
36 teams of 4, battled it out over three days at Centurion Club to become the first ever Aramco Team Series champions. Using a unique scoring system, and allowing an amateur to contribute to the final result of a professional tour event with a prize fund of $1m, the Aramco Team Series showcased the true excitement of the team format, with the winning team securing victory on the final two holes.
Team Olivia Cowan, paired with Sarina Schmidt, Diksha Dagar and amateur Andrew Kelsey produced a thrilling back nine as they combined to win with a total of 41-under-par (12-under on the final day).
Securing her first win on tour, Olivia Cowan had this to say; "I can’t put it in words how amazing it is. To share it with one of my best friends is just incredible as well. I got really lucky with my team. I knew I wanted to pick Sarina two weeks ago and then to have Diksha on the team as well – I knew she was a great player and that she could hole some putts – so, I knew we had a good chance".

About the event
Welcome to Centurion Club
Centurion Club is blessed with what is undoubtedly one of the finest new golf courses in Europe, it also enjoys a fabulous location which makes it...
Welcome to Centurion Club
Home to the first-ever Aramco Team Series Event. Centurion Club one of the newest Championship Golf Courses in England, opening in 2013.
Situated in a picturesque rolling Hertfordshire countryside, close to the Roman city of St Albans, and just a half hour’s drive from the city of London.
The course explores existing pine woodland on holes one to five, giving the course a distinctly mature and natural feel at the start of the round. The holes then move into areas which have been carefully yet dramatically shaped to offer both an aesthetically beautiful contribution, and a genuine challenge. This is achieved through a multitude of well-planned hazards, breath-taking views and strategic hole design.
About Centurion Club
Many of the carries and rough areas have been sown using indigenous fescue grasses and occasionally these features have been added across approaches to greens or across fairways giving the sight a distinct links feel.
Tees raised well above fairway level provide broad and spectacular views across the landscape; there are some 80 bunkers and four major water features on the course — all of which can be avoided by careful planning.
Undulating green surfaces have been planted with the latest bent seed to provide the very best year round putting surfaces.
With views across the lake and 18th green, a contemporary and welcoming club building has been created using the finest materials and interiors, providing a relaxed and comfortable place where members and their guests can enjoy time with friends, family and business colleagues.
The club offers exceptional dining with an ambience to match the signature experience, the restaurant is open to both the public and Centurion Club Members.
Centurion Club provides golfers an opportunity to join a superior private golfing facility with membership options designed to offer greater flexibility to suit each member’s lifestyle.
Centurion Club operates as a private club strictly for the use of its members and their invited guests. Different membership options are available to accommodate each member’s utilisation, whether for business use or for the whole family.
GOLF COURSE gallery
Centurion Club is Hertfordshire's newest offering, an undulating layout with elevated tees and strategically placed hazards and dense tree line.
The first hole, is one of the best opening holes across Britain, a real challenge framed by trees each side. Often a nervous tee shot, Centurion requires players to hit the fairway on hole 1, or a high score could be written on the card immediately.
After three holes within the trees, the course opens up, showcasing stunning panoramic views across the countryside. The 6th hole is a hole to be remembered, uphill from the tee, this tough par-4 requires a deadly accurate second as a swath of bunkers, rough-strewn hollows and lateral hazards populate the area within 100 yards of the green.
The back nine offers a spectacular variety of golfing holes, including the breath-taking 12th and 13th. The former, a relatively long par-4 sweeps down from the right hand side, and presents a picturesque green-side lake, protecting a green which sits 70 yards below the approach shot.
However, it is the 13th, which demonstrates possibly the best view on any golf hole across England. A wide fairway, enables the long hitters to go for the green in two, however strategically places hazards protect the green and the lay up area. A truly memorable par-5.
“ It's a course that will EXCITE and TEST golfers in equal measure and one that I am confident will be quickly seen as a MODERN CLASSIC. ”
