Play Wentworth Now At Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online has opened up another course you can play. The Wentworth Course (West Course) is the newest course you can now play.

After everyone completed the Multiplayer Community Challenge the Wentworth course was opened up to the massed and so far after playing a few rounds I love this old school course. On my first round I even got 3 eagles. There are a lot of trees so be warned where your lined up and always be careful of the elevation gains especially uphill. There are a few good ones. I really just want to play a few more but I have to get back to figuring out how to use my new Ladybug vapor steam cleaner otherwise I'll be doing that instead of watching the hockey game tonight.

Course Details

Wentworth Club is located in Virginia Water, Surrey, southwest of London, UK. The Club is a keystone in professional golf, housing the headquarters of the PGA European TOUR. The West Course in particular hosts the annual BMW PGA Championship as well as the HSBC World Match Play Championship. Since it's opening in 1926, the West Course has been a premier European golf venue. This par 72, 7,308 yard 18-hole golf course was designed by Harry Shapland Colt and more recently refined in 2005 & 2007 by Ernie Els. Wentworth's West Course also hosted the World Cup in 1956 as well as the Ryder Cup in 1953.

The West Course at Wentworth is set in rolling, heavily wooded terrain about 25 miles south west of London. The landscape is populated by pine, birch and oak trees that line the fairways and greens. On the first hole you can find the Millennium Oak growing alongside the fairway. The Signature Hole at the West Course is hole 17, a long par 5 which doglegs sharply to the left. Expect a difficult drive here due to the out of bounds left and dramatically sloping fairway to the right. Many tee shots end up in the deep rough or trees to the right side of the fairway.

The West Course is a classic yet challenging course which exemplifies great European course design. Get ready to explore 80 years of golf history and take on your next big challenge at Wentworth.
