As widely expected, it has today been confirmed that The Renaissance club will stage the Scottish Open and Ladies' Scottish Open in 2020.

Next year's edition of Scotland’s national men’s open will be played from July 9-12, 2020, followed closely by the women’s event from August 13-16.

More than 66,000 fans flocked to the Tom Doak-designed course for this year’s men's event – the highest figure since the tournament began travelling to venues across the country in 2011, following a 16-year spell at Loch Lomond Golf Club.

“Golf fans in East Lothian have shown tremendous support for this event in recent years, firstly at Gullane in 2015 and 2018, and they turned out in force at The Renaissance Club this year.
