More on the British Masters...

The British Masters was long a blockbuster tournament on the European Tour schedule from its inception in 1946 up until 2008. Throughout the 1980’s, the world’s very best golfers would travel far and wide to battle it out. Foreign favourites such as Seve Ballesteros, Lee Trevino and Bernhard Langer succeeded on some of Britain’s finest courses. Local heroes also ran riot with the likes of Sandy Lyle and Ian Woosnam lifting the trophy.

Around the turn of the millennium, the big names dried out and so did the prestige of the tournament. In 2008, attempts to find a new sponsor of the event were unsuccessful and the British Masters was removed from the European Tour schedule.

Backed by Sky Sports, the event made an ambitious return to Woburn in 2015 hosted by Ian Poulter. The event now follows a similar format, with a fun ‘Hero Challenge’ on the Tuesday night under the lights with music and pyrotechnics and a big name host, with Justin Rose taking the reins this time round.

Nearly 70,000 flooded through the gates at Close House last year, and with the likeable Englishman no doubt to bring in more big names on the start sheet, expect the biggest British Masters to date in 2018…

Walton Heath Golf Club - a quintessentially British classic...

Already steeped in a rich history, Walton Heath will add to its list of illustrious tournaments hosted when the British Masters comes to the heathland in October.

Easily accessible from Central London, Walton already welcomes the world golfing stage annually for the International Section Qualifier to the US Open. Michael Campbell made it stateside back in 2005 and remarkably went on to win his maiden major title at Pinehurst No.2. The pinnacle for the club was when USA brought arguably their strongest team ever to take on Europe in the 1981 Ryder Cup. Nicklaus, Watson, Trevino and co. blew away a newly reformed Europe side, in front of blockbuster crowds on the heath.

The club is home to two courses, the Old and New, which both feature in the top 50 golf courses in the UK and Ireland. For previous professional tournaments, a composite layout has been made featuring predominantly holes from the Old Course. The awe-inspiring heathland has a unique inland-links feel. The likes of Tom Watson and Colin Montgomerie have spoken of the difficulty of the greens, with subtle breaks that are no doubt going to challenge the field in 2018.
