“Any golfer worth his salt has to cross the sea and try to win the British Open”
The Open, the oldest and most prestigious championship, has seen the best golfers in the world compete against the challenge of links golf for more than 150 years. Eight professional players met in Prestwick beginning in 1860 to decide who would be the Champion Golfer.
The Challenge Belt, valued £25 at the time, was to be awarded to the victor. The first presentation of the Claret Jug didn’t occur until 1873. At The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the historic Claret Jug is now always on exhibit in the clubhouse.
The Amateur Championship and English Amateur Championship were first played at Hoylake, the “spiritual birthplace” of amateur golf. Here, the competition that would eventually become the Walker Cup was first held in 1921.
Two golden pineapples can be found on poles close to the putting green. They represent hospitality and were once found on the entrance gates. From the beginning, the Royal Liverpool Golf Club’s defenses were primarily made up of rushes, cops, and bunkers (pot, strip, and cross). Only the cop who surrounds the practice field may be left of these initial elements that can still be recognized today.
Few people realize how much those powerful breezes have altered relatively recent course designs, despite the fact that many people write about the powerful winds that hammer the links. Since the massive 200-yard bunker along the right side of the first hole was filled in, the fairway’s level has increased to almost a foot above that of the practice area.
