The last time The Open was played at Royal Portrush in 1951, the only time it has ever been played outside England and Scotland, it was Englishman Max Faulkner who ended the week lifting the Claret Jug. Will it be another Englishman holding the Claret Jug aloft this time around, or can one of the US and International stars create their own piece of history? One thing is for sure, you don’t want to miss out on this incredible major championship. Find out more below…
Two new testing holes are fantastic additions to the Dunluce Course, and a variety of new bunkers have been scattered to keep the pros on their toes. Max Faulkner was victorious when the tournament was last on Irish soil and, with the current array of golfing talent, it is certainly an open field. Who do you think can hold their nerve under the westerly winds in Northern Ireland? The new 7th and 8th have been designed by Martin Ebert of Mackenzie & Ebert and feature a long par-5 and a 430-yard par-4 that requires a pin point tee shot with views overlooking the the ruins of Dunluce Castle.
