The Open Championship 2018

19th – 22nd July 2018

After his stunning victory in 2017, Jordan Spieth will certainly be a favourite to retain his title. Speith had a 3 stroke lead coming into the last day, and actually surrendered the lead to his compatriot Matt Kuchar, but managed to claw back the lead and win by 3 stokes.  Britain’s Rory McIlroy recovered from an awful first day to finish in 4th.  As The Open now returns to Carnoustie in Scotland, the interest will be huge and early booking is advised.


Details below are for the 2017 Open at Royal Birkdale.  We will update this page with the Carnoustie offering as soon as possible.
