Known across the world as "The Most Desirable Major in Golf", The Open is the players favourite as the one they would love to win. Being awarded the accolade as the 'Champion Golfer of the Year' and being handed The Claret Jug is the pinnacle of a Golfers career.
In July 2018, Carnoustie Golf Links will welcome the best golfers in the world to compete at The 147th Open.
Carnoustie Golf Links last hosted the event in 2007 and the Championship returns to this historic venue for the 8th time in its long history.
Golf has been played at Carnoustie since the early 16th century, and in that time the links have earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the toughest golf destinations in the world.
It’s not just the strong winds which blow along this exposed stretch of the Angus coast; nor the bunkering, which is perfectly positioned to capture anything less than a top-quality shot; but it is also a very long, narrow golf course that, at 7,421 yards, is the longest of any of the Open venues.
As Sir Michael Bonallack put it,
“When the wind is blowing, it is the toughest golf course in Britain. And when it’s not blowing, it’s probably still the toughest.”

"Patrick, I never really knew how good it could be until I went with a group of friends. We had a couple of days at The Open Championship in St. Andrews as well as a few days playing golf beforehand.
It was a Golfers dream come true. Every details was taken care of, and we didn't have to think about a thing. Thanks for such a great week. Something none of us will ever forget and will be back to experience again in the future for sure."Dave Beresford
