As 'ordinary' though well off golfers are driven out of Wentworth to make room for the mega rich by new Chinese billionaire owner. Where does that leave the European Tour, which runs all profession golf tournaments in Europe from its headquarters on the Wentworth estate?
Wentworth is also the venue for the prestigious annual BMW PGA Championship in May.
What does it say about the direction of golf and the European Tour being based at such an exclusive club only accessible to the mega rich?
Peter Alliss, a honorary Wentworth member, said 'There are very few people who have £100,000 to piddle away on their pleasures.'
Golf Refugees who have a turbulent relationship with the European Tour suggest they move out and remove major tournaments from Wentworth.
