Since its inception in 1860, the British Open has been played over some of the world’s most famous links courses.
The event has produced an incredible legacy of great champions, including Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson. It is the oldest international championship in professional golf and the Claret Jug; first presented in 1873, is one of the most iconic trophies of all time.
In July 2018, the British Open returns to Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland. This historic course has recorded golf being played as early as the 16th century. Carnoustie has hosted seven Open Championships and is considered as one of the toughest golfing venues in the world, especially when the weather conditions become a serious factor.

There is a buzz in the air when you are at a golf tournament. From the crowded grandstands to the souvenir-packed gift shops, the overarching feeling is that you are experiencing something special. Attending a golf tournament in person also gives you a much better feel for the nuances of the course: its fairways, the speed of the greens, the thickness of the rough or the overall difficulty of a shot. You get a unique perspective on how the players approach a hole, seeing which side of the tee box they start from, how narrow the fairway is when viewed from the tee, their intended line and landing area and how much they shape their shot to avoid a bunker.
