KLM Dutch Open Winners and History

klm dutch open logo

Played regularly since 1912, the Dutch Open now is known as the KLM Open. The tournament has been part of the European Tour since its founding in 1972.

Since 2014, the KLM Open has hosted a unique “Beat The Pro” event at the tournament. On Thursday and Sunday, lucky amateurs will get a chance to tee off along with the pros at the par three 14th. Amateurs who get closer to the holes than the professionals will be eligible for prizes. In 2016,  four amateurs and former Tour player Robert-Jan Derksen beat the pros to claim prizes.

KLM is the Dutch national airline.
