The BMW PGA Championship 2010 has been the first event held on the reopened course, representing an entirely new challenge. The renovated West Course tests all aspects of a golfer’s game and demands shots played using every club in the bag.
Very few courses can boast a tournament history to match that of Wentworth’s. Originally designed in 1927 by Harry Colt, the 7,302-yard (6,677-metre) West Course hosted the 1953 Ryder Cup and three years later the Canada Cup, the forerunner to today’s World Cup of Golf. It has been home to the PGA Championship since 1984 – under the BMW banner since 2005 – and has rightfully earned a permanent place in the hearts and minds of golf enthusiasts all over the world.
High above the West Course sits the impressive and infamous clubhouse at the Wentworth Club – home of the European Tour headquarters and the legendary "Ryder Cup Room".
