Discovering the British Masters Venues

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 10 Oct 2018 | Comments


Since it was rejuvenated under the Sky Sports banner with the introduction of tournament hosts in 2015, the British Masters has once again been established on the calendar. This most recent reincarnation is just the latest for an event that dates back to 1946, supported by Dunlop for almost 40 years. During the 1980s, it was rebranded with 'British' in the name and became one of the most prestigious titles on the European Tour before falling off the schedule in 2009.

Delving into the past, the list of winners is suitably extraordinary. From Bobby Locke to Max Faulkner and Norman Von Nida, Peter Thomson, Tony Jacklin and Brian Huggett, later followed by the European trailblazers Bernhard Langer, Ian Woosnam, Sandy Lyle, Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros, the likes of Colin Montgomerie, Justin Rose and Lee Westwood have also claimed victory in this genuine 'classic' of the circuit. You'll also spot international greats such as Lee Trevino, Greg Norman and Bob Charles.

The champions are rather good, but the venues weren't bad either. Walton Heath is just the latest for the 2018 edition, hosted by the 2002 victor Justin Rose. We look back at the previous courses that have welcomed the British Masters through the years, featuring Golfshake Features & Reviews. Take a note of many you have played or visited.
