Biggest names in golf to return to Wentworth

With September around the corner we are delighted to have the prestigious BMW PGA Championships returning to our doorstep, and this year one of the biggest names in golf is stepping foot on the soil once more, with Rory McIlroy returning to play for the first time since 2019.

It has been held at The Wentworth Club since 1984. This year it is being held once more at Wentworth from 6th – 11th September.
