BMW PGA Championship and exclusive Wentworth properties

Wentworth Golf Club in Virginia Water, Surrey, is once again preparing to host Europe’s richest Golf Competition, the BMW PGA Championship, as well as hosting the ever popular celebrity Pro-Am Day. Full of familiar football faces and household name and an atmosphere of excitement and with the scent of fierce competition in the air, anticipation for the event is high. It’s certainly going to be a championship worth watching!

What Is the Pro-Am BMW PGA Championship?

The celebrity Pro-Am is held before the – rather more serious – BMW PGA Championship gets underway. On May 23rd, players from notable football clubs will descend on the course, trading football boots for golf shoes, and battle it out for their spot in the Pro-Am BMW PGA Championship history books.

Though certainly not their professional sport, footballers definitely take Pro-Am golf pretty seriously, though of course it is all a bit of fun at the end of the day. The crowds love to watch the non-professionals give the course a go, getting swept up in the excitement and enthusiasm of the day.

Who Can We Expect to See?

This year, the line-up for the Pro-Am is as star-studded as ever with footballing legends. We have Man United greats Paul Scholes – the most decorated English footballer in history – and Peter Schmeichel – voted best goalkeeper in 1992 and 1993 – going up against Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler – the sixth-highest goal scorer in the records of the Premier League. You can also expect to see Alan Shearer (Newcastle United), Gianfranco Zola (Chelsea) and Vinnie Jones (Sheffield United, Leeds United, Wimbledon and Chelsea). A line-up certainly not to be sniffed at!


Tickets for both the Pro-Am and the actual BMW PGA Championship are still available, so if you’d like to attend the notable golfing event in Wentworth in May, go and snap your seat up now.
