British Masters returns again to the Grove in 2016

sub heading

The Grove is hosting the British Masters golf tournament on 12-16 October. To ensure the success of the event and minimise the impact on our roads, temporary road restrictions will be in place.

  • Luke Donald has chosen to stage the 2016 British Masters at The Grove
  • It will be the second time The Grove has hosted a European Tour event

The Grove will host only its second European Tour event, having held a World Golf Championship tournament nine years ago, won by former world number one Tiger Woods.

Luke Donald, former World Number One, returns to The Grove for this prestigious event in his role as tournament Ambassador.
'I'm very delighted to say we are going to The Grove, which of course hosted a WGC back in 2006,' said Donald.


European Tour, Fairhurst (As Transport Consultants), Hertfordshire Highways, Highways England and Hertfordshire Constabulary have developed a Travel Management Strategy.
