Golf - European PGA Championship

This tournament, held at the end of May each year at Wentworth in Virginia Water, England, is recognised as the premier event organised by the European PGA Tour. It's name derives from the Professional Golfers' Association of Britain and Ireland.
Until 1966 the championship was purely for PGA members (Closed), and in 1967 & 1968 both Closed and Open tournaments were held before the event became solely an Open tournament.
It was initially staged at a variety of venues, including Wentworth (1972-74), but hasbeen played at it's current home every year since 1984.
Previous courses used have been: Pannal (1955), Maesdu (1956 & 57), Llandudno (1958), Ashburnham (1959 & 69), Coventry (1960), Royal Mid-Surrey (1961 & 68 Closed), Little Aston (1962), Royal Birkdale (1963 & 78), Western Gailes (1964), Prince's (1965), Saunton (1966), Thorndon Park (1967 Closed), Hunstanton (1967 Open), Dunbar (1968 Open), Royal St George's (1975-77, 1980 & 1983), St Andrews (1979), Ganton (1981) & Hillside (1982)
