The European Tour finally sets foot in Europe for the first time this season as they prep for the British Masters.
We had a rush of pre-tourney WDs from some upper-tier golfers who just qualified for the PGA Championship. Despite the early exits, it’s still one of the stronger fields of the season so far.
The course is Hillside Golf Club which is a links-style layout just off the Merseyside Coast. It’s a par 72 that shows just 6,953 yards on the scorecard (SHORT). Even though the course rotates at this event, there is plenty to be said about golfers that feel comfortable in the Great Britain & Ireland region. So, don’t feel bad about have a glance at event history.
You can also have a look at the Fantasy Golfanac for more about the course setup.
For turf, we have typical links grasses with bentgrass/fescue across the property.
Let’s dive into some past results to see who might fit the course.
