Competitors will play alongside Jones, a selection of famous friends and team-mates for what organisers believe will be a fitting end to his benefit year.

Jones said: “Although it’s just over a year away, I’m already looking forward to hosting my own golf classic. Pestana Vila Sol is a fantastic venue and I’m looking forward to getting a good crowd out there enjoying some fun competitive golf and having a few laughs.

“Your Golf are experts in this field and have put some great packages together. I can’t wait to get out to Portugal.”
