Did you know?

Broadhurst's successful amateur career culminated in winning the Silver Medal as the lowest scoring amateur in the 1988 Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Annes. He turned professional later that year and joined the European Tour in 1989. An early win in the Cannes Open and other good finishes saw him crowned the European Tour Rookie of the Year in 1989. Five further European Tour wins followed, the last two coming in the 2005 and 2006 Portuguese Opens.

At the 119th Open Championship played on the Old Course, St Andrews, Broadhurst shot a 9-under par 63, the lowest scoring round in relation to par in Open Championship history.

A win on debut in the Scottish Senior Open led to Broadhurst becoming the European Senior Tour's Rookie of the Year for 2015. The following year another win on debut, this time in The Senior Open at Carnoustie, gave him a first major championship title. It also tipped the scales for him to be voted the Champions Tour Rookie of the Year for 2016.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
