Golf Monthly readers have the opportunity to play in the 2019 BMW Golf Cup International


Play In The BMW Golf Cup International At Hillside Or Woburn

We’ve seen Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka claim the Masters and USPGA so far in 2019 but now it’s your turn to test your game in a Major amateur event.

Here is an opportunity for Golf Monthly readers to tee it up in one of the BMW Golf Cup International Regional Qualifiers, with both taking place on courses that feature in our UK and Ireland Top 100 rankings.

One of them is 2019’s British Masters venue Hillside and the other is the Duke’s Course at Woburn.


The par-3 7th at Hillside Golf Club

The stunning Hillside in Lancashire is a mix of heathland and links, and features one of the best back nines you’ll find on these shores.


Elevated tees on the run in also provide wonderful views to the Lake District in the north and Snowdonia in the south, but these shouldn’t distract from the sheer quality of the holes.

The Duke’s Course at Woburn in Buckinghamshire is the oldest of the three stunning tree-lined courses on the estate, and is famous for its memorable downhill par-3 3rd hole.

The 3rd hole

It has hosted numerous professional tournaments including the British Masters, Women’s British Open and Travis Perkins Senior Masters.

Golfers that qualify for Hillside or Woburn will have the opportunity to play in the National Final taking place on 03-05 October 2019.
