BREAKING: Troon will host The Open Golf in 2023

The 152nd Open will be played at Royal Troon from 16-23 July 2023.

A century after hosting golf’s original major for the first time, the battle for the Claret Jug will return to Royal Troon in 2023 for The 152nd Open.

The famed links course in South Ayrshire will play host to its 10th Open, celebrating 100 years since the Championship first came to Troon in 1923.

The last time The Open was held at Royal Troon was in 2016, when Henrik Stenson triumphed over Phil Mickelson in a head to head battle for the ages. Both players played magnificent golf all week, producing record scores to par during an unforgettable event.

With his win in 2016, Stenson became a member of an exclusive club of Royal Troon Open winners, all of whom winning their titles in memorable style over the past century.

“ We are very much looking forward to celebrating another milestone in the cherished history of The Open when we mark the 100th anniversary of the Championship first being played at Royal Troon.”MARTIN SLUMBERS, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF THE R&A

The Swede joined Arthur Havers, Bobby Locke, Arnold Palmer, Tom Weiskopf, Tom Watson, Mark Calcavecchia, Justin Leonard and Todd Hamilton as Open champions on this classic course.

The world’s best golfers will all be vying for a chance to join that illustrious list in 2023, as they look to write their own piece of history and become Champion Golfer of the Year.
