The Open Championship

The Open

The Open Championship is the greatest golf tournament of all with the first championship being held at Prestwick Golf Club in Ayrshire, Scotland in 1860. In 1873, St Andrews played host. Over the years a number of the other great links courses in the UK have been added to the Open circuit such as Muirfield, Royal Troon, Carnoustie, Royal Birkdale and Turnberry to name but a few.

The Open Championship returns to St Andrews "The Home of Golf" in July 2015 which will be the 144th Open Championship. Once again the world's greatest golfers will gather to do battle for the famous Claret Jug over the Old Course where Tiger Woods was victorious in both 2000 and 2005. Louis Oosthuizen was the most recent winner at the "Home of Golf" in 2010 where he claimed a seven shot win over Lee Westwood in second place.

Will you see the next Aussie to follow in the footsteps of Peter Thomson who won 5 Open Championships - 1954, 1955, 1956, 1958, 1965, Greg Norman (2) - 1986, 1993, Ian Baker-Finch - 1991 and Kel Nagle - 1960.

 
The Golf Courses

Kingsbarns

 

kingsbarns.300

The only Scottish course to be built on links land in over 70 years and with its seaside setting, Kingsbarns joined the great old courses of nearby St Andrews and Carnoustie, bringing with it a new dimension to the traditional Scottish game. Kingsbarns serves as co-host of the Inaugural Dunhill Links alongside St Andrews. Upon seeing Kingsbarns for the first time, even the likes of the Captain of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club found himself at a bit of a loss: "Mere words cannot convey just how extraordinary the place is. It must be seen to be believed. And once seen, it will never be forgotten."

Carnoustie

 

carnoustie.300 Famous for John Van De Velde's collapse on the last hole in 1999.

Carnoustie Championship course is now in the finest condition it has ever been. Not only does it offer the ultimate challenge to every golfer but it provides a playing quality second to none. The Barry Burn eases its way through the final 3 holes, quietly awaiting the shot that is slightly less than perfect.

Royal Aberdeen

 

royal aberdeen.300

Royal Aberdeen was founded in 1780 and is the sixth oldest golf club in the world. The first tee is under the clubhouse window and the fairway heads straight for the sea.  The next eight holes run parallel to the shore, weaving their way through towering sand dunes.  The back nine play on higher ground and provide stunning North Sea views.
