The 152nd Open Championship will be held at Royal Troon, 100 years after the Ayrshire club first hosted golf's oldest major.
It will be the 10th time the Championship is hosted over the Ayrshire links and 100 years on from the first, when England’s Arthur Havers turned out as winner.
The last time Royal Troon welcomed the tournament was in 2016, when Henrik Stenson bettered Phil Mickelson in a tantalising battle on the final day.
“We are very much looking forward to celebrating another milestone
in the cherished history of The Open when we mark the 100th anniversary
of the Championship first being played at Royal Troon,” said R&A
chief executive Martin Slumbers.
Perhaps the most infamous Open at Troon was in 2004, when Todd Hamilton beat 500-1 odds – and Ernie Els in a play-off – to lift the Claret Jug.
The 152nd Open will be played from 16-23 July 2023.
