146th British Open at Royal Birkdale

For those who appreciate the game of golf’s rich history, this is the ultimate tournament experience. Be there as the 146th British Open is played out at Royal Birkdale. Witness the tournament returning to Birkdale for the first time since 2008. Having hosted its first Open in 1954, the course which was first established in 1889 went through an extensive redesign in 1922. Royal Birkdale was brought up to Open standard in 1935 and due to the war, the course had to wait for its Open debut until 1954. Since first hosting The Open, the course has been (alongside Royal Lytham) the most regular venue for the Championship other than St Andrews.
