The KLM Open is an annual golf tournament played in The Netherlands, and has been part of the European Tour's schedule since the Tour was inaugurated in 1972. Founded in 1912, the tournament was originally known as the Dutch Open, before a variety of sponsors resulted in numerous name changes over the years, with KLM being the current incumbents. The tournament has been moved around the golfing calendar somewhat, but is currently held in August at Kennemer Golf & Country Club. Many other venues have been used for the event in the past, most frequently Hilversumsche Golf Club.
