THE West Course. It doesn't get much more challenging.

The West Course has been a genuine test since Ernie Els’s modifications.

Wentworth’s revered West Course has been closed between summer 2009 and spring 2010 for the final phase of an extensive modernisation programme. This has involved the construction of 18 new greens’ complexes to USGA specifications, ensuring they perform to the absolute highest of standards. At the same time, all the greenside and fairway bunkers have been remodelled and, where necessary, replaced by tricky new bunkers positioned more ‘in play’.

COURSE GUIDE.

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".
