It will be that time again soon. The Dutch Open cup, since this year KLM Open cup again, will leave the Dutch Golf Museum for a while.
Because from Thursday 25 May to Sunday 28 May she will be at the KLM Open 2023 at Bernardus Golf in Cromvoirt (near Den Bosch) to be awarded to the winner of the golf tournament on the final day. The KLM Open is one of the oldest international top sports tournaments in the Netherlands.
After Victor Perez won the Dutch Open last year, there was no place left on the cup. The solution was an elevation of the wooden base, on which a third ring could then be placed (see photo on the left). As a result, there is enough room for the future winners of this DP World Tour race for the coming decades.
The KLM Open cup was picked up from the golf museum on 11 May by Pieter Bijnen, sponsor manager of the Dutch Golf Federation (NGF). Of course not after he was given a tour of the golf museum by secretary Jacques Schuiling. For Pieter it was the first time he visited the golf museum. He had heard a lot about it, but was impressed by what has been achieved here in the field of golf. In terms of golf history, he naturally recognized many golf objects that the golf museum has on loan from the NGF.
The KLM Open cup is now used for some promotional activities and after the award ceremony it will soon return to the Dutch Golf Museum. But we do not yet know which name has been engraved.
