• In the five years the tournament has been part of The European Tour International Schedule, all five winners have made the SAINT-OMER OPEN presented by NEUFLIZE OBC their first European Tour victory. They are: Brett Rumford (2003), José-Filipe Lima (2004), Joakim Bäckström (2005),               Cesar Monasterio (2006) and Carl Suneson (2007).

• Carl Suneson was one of five Spanish players to win on The 2007 European Tour International Schedule. They were: José Manuel Lara (UBS Hong Kong Open), Alvaro Quiros Garcia (Alfred Dunhill Championship), Pablo Martin (Estoril Open de Portugal) and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño (Italian Open).

• The 2002 championship, when the event was just part of the European Challenge Tour,  saw history made with Nicolas Vanhootegem claiming the title. After 36 holes, the Belgian made the halfway cut on the mark, with a score of 145 (+3). He then played the final two rounds in ten under par, closing with a then course record 65 (-6). His 72 hole total of   277 (-7) was enough for a four shot victory over Gustavo Rojas and Lee  James. Vanhootegem went into the record books as the first player from any of the three Tours to win after making the cut on the cut score.

• The Saint Omer course has proved a tough test since the par changed from a par 73 to a 71 in 2003 – the year the tournament became part of The European Tour International Schedule. In the past five years, the average winning score has been 275 (-9).
