Golf's oldest major
For over 150 years, the world's best golfers have battled it out against the challenge of links golf at The Open, the oldest and most international Championship. Starting in 1860, eight professional golfers assembled at Prestwick to determine who would be the Champion Golfer. The winner was to receive the Challenge Belt, which at the time was worth £25. It wasn't until 1873 that the Claret Jug was presented for the first time. The original Claret Jug is now on permanent display at the clubhouse at The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews.
The Old Course, St Andrews
"The Old Course at St Andrews is possibly the most famous golf course in the world and constantly ranked amongst the best. It is rich in history and tradition, with The Royal and Ancient Club being created in 1754. Their Clubhouse stands next to the 1st tee and 18th green, providing an impressive backdrop to the final hole. With greats such as Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and Seve Ballesteros's previous wins here, it is clear class prevails on the Old Course.
With so many famous holes on the Old Course, it can be difficult to pick out a single signature hole, however, the 17th ‘Road Hole’ is a good bet. With the tee shot being played over the Old Course Hotel, the more aggressive line is rewarded with a better angle to the green. However, with a long iron approach required to a narrow green backing onto the road, it is easy to see why this is regarded as one of the hardest par 4’s in golf.

"I would like to say what a brilliant time me and my friends had in Belfast. The girls on the Golfbreaks desk were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to help you and very hard working. The golf was amazing and with Shane Lowry winning was the icing on the cake. I would definitely recommend using golf breaks and will definitely be using them again in the near future. "
