About the BMW PGA Championship
The illustrious BMW PGA Championship was founded in 1955 by the Professional Golfers’ Association. Originally named the British PGA Championship, the famed tournament has since been the subject of several high profile sponsorship deals.
The contest traditionally commenced annually in May over the West Course of Wentworth Golf Club in Virginia Water, Surrey – the south-western fringes of London, not far from Windsor Castle. After the US PGA major recommenced in May, the BMW PGA moved to later on in the year.
The PGA European Tour is headquartered at Wentworth Golf Club and as the tour’s home tournament, it is widely considered to be one of the leading social and sporting events in the calendar. The winner of the Championship is given an exemption from the season’s upcoming U.S. Open and the subsequent Open Championships.
The competition boasts a number of distinguished winners including the most recent champion, Ryan Fox. Other winners include Tyrell Hatton, Danny Willett, former world No1 Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Severiano Ballesteros, Ian Woosnam and José María Olazábal. In 2000, Colin Montgomerie became the only player to win three years successively, whilst former World No.1 Luke Donald achieved a rare double with back-to-back wins in 2011 and 2012.
The club is owned by the Beijing-based Reignwood Group which purchased the famed premises in 2014. But Wentworth Golf Club can be traced back to the 19th-century house the “Wentworths” (now the dedicated clubhouse), then home to the brother-in-law of the Duke of Wellington.
Wentworth’s rich heritage is a tribute to the unequivocal talent and vision put forward by several generations of extraordinary men and women.
Were it not for developer Walter George Tarrant and golf course architect, Harry Colt, Wentworth would not exist today. Tarrant saw the development potential of the site and possessed the skills and the business acumen to make his vision a reality. Meanwhile, Colt was tasked with creating two fully-fledged golf courses in the wooded, heath-land setting, first the East and three years later the West.
Today Wentworth Golf Club offers a fantastic range of facilities, from three 18 hole golf courses to a one nine-hole Par 3 executive course. Extensive practice facilities and a bespoke TaylorMade Performance Lab also prominently feature at this venerable setting.
For golf hospitality lovers, the clubhouse boasts several restaurants, bars, as well as private meeting and dining rooms for up to 300 guests. The Ballroom hospitality facility is a premium option, with a private entrance directly into the iconic Clubhouse, a three-course lunch and a cash bar for Champagne and spirits.
One of our most popular hospitality facilities is the Green on 18, offering excellent views of Wentworth Golf Club and a greenside terrace overlooking the final hole, which was new for last season. Take advantage of the complimentary bar and indulge in afternoon tea following a three-course luncheon.
Its extensive Tennis & Health Club features 13 tennis courts, a multi-sport area, a children’s playground, a creche, gym, studio, two indoor and one outdoor swimming pool, café, lounge, and a spa with seven treatment rooms.
There is certainly something for everyone to enjoy.
The Ryder Cup also boasts links to the distinguished Club. The Roaring 20s were in full swing when Walter Hagen claimed he was bringing “the most powerful team whoever left New York” over to Wentworth for a team match between British and American professionals.
Hagen’s team took a beating that day, but the result of the 1926 encounter was immaterial. The occasion saw such resounding success that Samuel Ryder, who provided the trophy, stated his intent on making the fixture permanent. Hence the Ryder Cup was born.
When it returned to Wentworth in 1953, it was the Americans who triumphed despite their star player Ben Hogan absent from the play. The Ryder Cup has been instrumental in placing Wentworth on the global map of tournament golf; it proudly remains there to this day.
The BMW PGA Championship offers the chance to combine great golf with first-class hospitality, providing a superb overall experience. Make it a fabulous day to remember with our BMW PGA Championship hospitality packages.
