With another exciting Open Championship over at Royal Birkdale, we’re delighted to announce that we’ll once again be offering bespoke tournament experiences to The 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie. Famous for the downfall of Jean Van de Velde in 1999 and Sergio Garcia’s ‘almost’ year in 2007, Carnoustie is famously The Open’s toughest test and promises to create all sorts of drama throughout the four days. To get amongst the action and see some of golf’s most iconic moments, take a look at our example package below which includes The Open tickets, accommodation and transfers.
The oldest and most prestigious major in golfing history, there are many that say The Open Championship is also the biggest. Having been played across the UK’s finest links courses since 1860, The Open has paved the way for golf’s most historic moments and greatest memories for over 150 years. From the fathers of golf such as Harry Vardon and Bobby Jones, to the likes of Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus, the game’s biggest players have all had their name etched onto the iconic Claret Jug.
Known to be one of the Open’s hardest and most punishing courses, Carnoustie is a devastating links situated along the beautiful Angus coastline, 25 minutes east of Dundee and 47 minutes north of St Andrews. Famed for its difficult pot bunkers and incredibly tight fairways, Carnoustie Golf Links is also the longest Open venue at 7,421 yards. Having already hosted this major championship in 1931, 1937, 1953, 1968, 1975, 1999 and 2007, Carnoustie is no stranger to hosting major events, and 2018 promises to be another fantastic year. Perhaps the most memorable year came in 1999 when Jean Van de Velde gave up a three shot lead on the 72nd hole to see Paul Lawrie claim his first and only major title.
