Key: Practice Round   Pro-Am   Tournament

Following Tommy Fleetwood's success as host at the brilliant Hillside Golf Club, the British Masters will return to Close House in 2020, with our Chief Holiday Officer Lee Westwood playing host once more. As the associated pro at Close House, as well as having a big hand in the design of the famed Colt Course, Lee is no doubt relishing the experience of welcoming the European Tour to the North West once again.

In 2017, Close House flourished under the spotlight as Paul Dunne won his first European Tour event on a week which broke previous attendance records; looking ahead to the 2020 tournament, the course's varied holes and tests will demand intelligent course management and strategy from the competitors, with the field looking to win at this prestigious venue.
