The El Bosque Open was a professional golf tournament on the European Tour. It was held just once, in 1990, when it replaced the Jersey Open on the tour schedule.[1] Its renewal in 1991 was cancelled due to lack of sponsorship.[2]

The tournament was played on the Robert Trent Jones designed course at El Bosque Golf & Country Club, Valencia, Spain from 5–8 April and was won by Vijay Singh of Fiji, who later become the World's Number 1 golfer. It was Singh's second title on the European Tour and he shot a ten under par of 278 to win by two strokes from the Englishmen Richard Boxall and Chris Williams.[3]

The annual schedule states the total prize implied by the breakdown was in pounds.
