Join SGH on the experience of a lifetime at the 2016 British Open
The British Open Golf Championship, often referred to as simply ‘The Open’, is the oldest major golf tournament in the world. Steeped in history, the tournament was first played back in 1860 at Prestwick Golf Club, Scotland and there have been some legendary winners of the Claret Jug in the 155 years since.
Going back to the likes of Harry Vardon, Bobby Jones, Peter Thompson, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus and Seve Ballesteros, through to modern day greats such as Tiger Woods, Padraig Harrington, Ernie Els and Rory McIlroy, the winners of this famous tournament read like a who’s who of golf.
Although a different course is used each year, there is one common factor between them, as they are always links style courses. There are currently ten courses in the rota and the British Open 2016 will return to Royal Troon Golf Club, Ayrshire Scotland.
Royal Troon last hosted the tournament in 2004 and therefore, it’s sure to be an extra special occasion in 2016. It will be the ninth time the Open Championship has been held at Royal Troon, a course where American golfer’s have dominated over the years. Previous winners of The Open at Royal Troon include Tod Hamilton, Justin Leonard, Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer. You have to go all the way back to 1923, to find a British winner of the tournament at Royal Troon.
Will Rory McIlroy or Justin Rose be able to break the American’s Royal Troon dominance at the British Open 2016 or will Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson keep their fantastic run going?
Whoever comes out on top, it’s sure to be a tremendous event, full of world class golf and huge drama, right down to the 18th hole of the final round.
