2018 British Open

Carnoustie, Scotland - July 19-22

Carnoustie Golf Links

Make 2018 the year you mark the British Open off your bucket list.

The 147th Open Championship in 2018 will be truly special. A bold, natural seaside links course, Carnoustie Golf Links has hosted the Open Championship seven times with illustrious champions like Ben Hogan in 1953, Gary Player in 1968 and Tom Watson in 1975. Then, in 1999, who can forget the three shot lead that France’s Jean Van de Velde held on the 72nd hole, only to lose in a playoff to Paul Lawrie.

Always rated as one of the British Isles' toughest courses, Carnoustie, with its narrow fairways and menacing bunkers, not to mention the penal burn (creek) that winds through the course, will provide a stiff challenge to the best golfers in the world. The bunkers at Carnoustie’s Championship course are tough and unyielding. Some of them are gigantic and can easily turn a birdie into a bogey. For example, on the par five 6th, which is named “Hogan’s Alley”, there are two bunkers in the middle of the fairway and a third on the right hand side making the tee shot especially demanding. Then there is the 14th hole where giant “Spectacle Bunkers” guard the approach and resemble a huge pair of eye glasses from the fairway.  Because there are so few accommodations in town, most people will access The Open at Carnoustie from St Andrews, located about 45 minutes away.

Premier Golf is pleased to have secured two fantastic St Andrews hotels to choose from: The Old Course Hotel & Spa (5 star) and The Hotel Du Vin (4 star boutique). Rounds of golf and tickets and rental vehicles to the event are included.
