The Open returns to Carnoustie

The Open Championship is the oldest of the four major tournaments on the golfing calendar. It’s held in Scotland at least every two years and it goes without saying that it is most definitely the most prestigious. After an 11 year break, the stunning Carnoustie Golf Links welcomes back the tournament.

Scotland is indeed the home of golf and this year it finally returns back to Carnoustie in July 18-22. Carnoustie is renowned for being one of the world’s most challenging links courses. It is one of the very few courses to have hosted seven Open Championships, one Ladies championship and also one Seniors championship.

For well over four centuries the game of golf has been played in Carnoustie. It is one of Britain’s finest golf courses, not only is it well known for being formidable but also one of the best conditioned courses in the country.
