About the British Masters

The British Masters was one of the most lucrative events on the European Tour. It was first founded in 1946 as The Dunlop Masters and was held ever year until 2008. The Dunlop Sponsorship ended in 1982 and the name of the tournament changed to have the word 'British' in the tournament title. The British Masters returned to the European Tour schedule in 2015 and was held at The Wobrun Club. We now look forward to the 2016 British Masters at The Grove being hosted by Luke Donald.
