The Saint-Omer Open is an annual men's professional golf tournament which played at Saint-Omer Golf Club in Saint-Omer, France. The tournament was founded in 1997 and was part of the MasterCard Tour a year later, before taking its place on the Challenge Tour for the 2000 season. In 2003 it also became an official money event on the European Tour, but since it is played during the same week as the U.S. Open, one of golf's four major championships, the Tour's leading players are not available to play and as such, it has the smallest purse available on the European Tour.
The €500,000 event is dual-ranked between The European Tour and the Challenge Tour, giving players from the latter a golden opportunity to immediately step up to golf's top tier. The prize fund is much higher than usual Challenge Tour events, so it also presents the chance to leap up the Rankings, as Englishman Danny Denison, Scotsman Craig Lee and Swede Peter Gustafsson did 12 months ago.
The trio finished tied second over the 6835-yards, par 71 course, and the €44,740 they each earned was key to their final positions of sixth, 14th and 29th respectively in the Challenge Tour Rankings.
Former champions David Dixon, Carl Suneson, Cesar Monasterio and José-Filipe Lima are in the field, along with former Ryder Cup players David Howell and Oliver Wilson.
