Venue Info

Home of the BMW International Open - The Championship Course at Golfclub München Eichenried was the scene of the very first shot played at the inaugural BMW International Open back in 1989. Since then, countless sporting triumphs and tragedies have been played out on this course, which has been the subject of multiple renovations over the past few decades. The next improvement – the renovation of all greens on the course, has been completed in spring 2019, ensuring ideal conditions for the BMW International Open.

Course Info

The total length of all 18 holes is 6,616 metres (7,235 yards). The Championship Course can only be played during the BMW International Open, as it comprises elements of the three courses at GC München Eichenried – courses A, B and C.

The finishing straight is particularly challenging. Holes 16, 17 and 18 are a real challenge, particularly since they were modified for the tournament’s 25th anniversary in 2013. The 16th hole (par 4), with its green guarded by water on three sides, is an exciting risk/reward hole that punishes any mistake. It is followed by a par 3, on which the Hole-in-One Award is up for grabs, before the round culminates in a par-5 dogleg, which can make or break a player’s round – or even tournament. For the 2017 tournament, hole 13 was extended from 340 to 395 meters (431 yards).

Three players have achieved the dream shot on the Championship Course in the past: America’s Jay Townsend was the first to win the Hole-in-One Award in 1991 (BMW 325i Convertible). And Frenchmen Raphaël Jacquelin (2001, BMW Z8) and Jean-François Lucquin (2010, BMW 535i) also have particularly fond memories of München Eichenried.
