Carnoustie Golf Links
Angus, Scotland


The Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex will return to Carnoustie Golf Links for the first time since 2010 when the famous Scottish course plays host to the Senior Major from July 21-24, 2016.

It will be the first time the Championship is held in Scotland since Turnberry in 2012, when Fred Couples claimed a two shot victory. Carnoustie's hosting will also mark the 30th edition of The Senior Open Championship. 

Carnoustie has hosted The Open Championship on seven occasions, most recently in 2007 when Ireland’s Padraig Harrington claimed his first Claret Jug after defeating Spain’s Sergio Garcia in a play-off.

The Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex will return to Royal Porthcawl Golf Club in 2017 following the huge success of Wales’ first Senior Major Championship in 2014.
More than 43,000 spectators lined the fairways of the revered Bridgend links in July to witness Bernhard Langer produce one of the stand-out performances in the history of senior golf to win the title for a second time, finishing 13 shots clear of 2010 Ryder Cup Captain Colin Montgomerie.
Prior to hosting The Senior Open Championship, Royal Porthcawl hosted the Coral Welsh Classic on The European Tour three times between 1980-1982, and the Wales Senior Open in 2009, 2010 and 2013, as well as the 1995 Walker Cup, featuring Tiger Woods, when Great Britain and Ireland beat the USA by 14-10. Royal Porthcawl will also host the Amateur Championship in 2016.
