The R&A today confirmed the venue of the 150th Open will indeed be The Old Course. This has been anticipated by many for several years, but the R&A kept with tradition and only confirmed it with the customary 3 1/2 year lead in time it normally does.
This will be the 30th time The Old Course has hosted the premier event in the European golfing calendar.

The 148th Open takes place in July this year and it will be played over the challenging Carnoustie Links. Carnoustie is one of our favourite courses for our golfing groups and thousands of our clients have played the links during their Scotland Golf Tours trip. The overwhelming impressions the golfers take home with them are – the condition of the course is always exceptional, the course is very playable by all the amateurs with decent handicaps if you avoid the bunkers, and the closing stretch of holes is amongst the toughest of any of The Open rota courses.
There are still packages available so why not come and enjoy the amazing event that is The Open. You may prefer to come later in the season and actually play the course, tee times are still available. Bookings for 2018 are still being taken and bookings for 2019 are already very strong, particularly for the larger groups of 12 or more .
