The head of the EGCC , Hanno Kross has made it very clear to the European Tour that they want to host the event.  ” Hosting a round of the World Cup competition in Estonia will not only influence the popularity of golf and confirm it’s status in Estonia, but will also confirm that Estonia is very much on the golfing map of the world … ”

The race to host Omega Hills World Cup European Qualifier will be decided in March of this year, after the Heads of the European Tour have paid a visit to Estonia and Finland.
