The Open to return to St Andrews in 2015

The R&A has announced that the Old Course at St Andrews, officially the oldest golf course in the world, will host the 2015 Open Championship.

It will be the 29th time the course has staged the British Open – viewed by many as the most prestigious tournament in golf, and the oldest of the four major championships in professional golf – dating back to 1873. It last hosted the event in 2010, which was won by South African Louis Oosthuizen.

Peter Dawson, CEO of The R&A, stated: “We are delighted to announce that the Open will be returning to St Andrews and the historic Old Course in 2015.

“St Andrews has proved time and again that it is perfectly equipped to host the Open and I am certain we will yet again see a worthy winner lift the Claret Jug.

“Players, spectators and officials alike will welcome a return to the game’s spiritual home and I fully expect that we will witness another thrilling championship.”

Euan Loudon, chief executive of St Andrews Links Trust, said: “We are very much looking forward to welcoming the Open Championship back to the Links.

“There is always a special sense of anticipation when the Open is played on the Old Course and it promises to be no different in 2015.

“Almost every great champion in the game has played here and there is no more fitting celebration of the rich heritage of the Home of Golf than hosting golf’s oldest major championship.”
