BMW International Open.

World-class golf since 1989.

It was with the BMW International Open that BMW launched its involvement in professional golf. Since then, the premium automobile manufacturer has become one of the sport’s most important global partners. BMW has organised the longest-spanning European Tour event on German soil since 1989. For many years, the BMW International Open was held near the company headquarters in Munich. In 2012, the tournament teed off at Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof, near Cologne, for the first time. Since then, the two venues have taken it in turns to host the tournament. It is Golfclub München Eichenried's turn again in 2017.

2016 winner: Henrik Stenson

This win was long overdue: Henrik Stenson narrowly missed out on first place at the BMW International Open in the two previous years, then in 2016 it was the Swede's turn. On an intensive final Sunday - heavy rain on Saturday meant that two rounds had to be played on Sunday - Stenson had the strongest finish and with 271 shots (-17), pushed Thorbjørn Olesen (DEN, -14) and Darren Fichardt (RSA, -14) into joint second place. After winning in 2006, this was Stenson's second title at the BMW International Open.

The Meerbar in Düsseldorf, directly on the banks of the Rhine was the perfect backdrop for the glamorous start to the tournament week of the 28th BMW International Open. Presented by Christina Surer and Johannes B. Kerner, the Tee-Off Night was a rendezvous for stars and celebrities from the worlds of sport and entertainment.

The BMW International Open is far more than just another golf tournament. Not only can visitors watch world-class golfers in action, but the experience continues beyond the golf course. All the highlights from the BMW range are also on display. There are opportunities for golfers young and old to get active, whilst roughly 70 exhibitors are on hand to provide information on all issues surrounding the game of golf. There is also a relaxing beer garden with a varied entertainment programme – and a big screen to ensure the fans miss none of the key action.
