25 – 28 July 2024
The Senior Open presented by Rolex will take place at Carnoustie Golf Links for the first time in eight years when the event returns to Scotland in 2024.
Europe’s only senior major championship will visit the Angus venue for the third time when the 38th edition of The Senior Open takes place from July 25-28, 2024.
The venue, which has hosted The Open eight times — most recently when Francesco Molinari prevailed in 2018, provided the backdrop for two maiden senior major triumphs in each of the two previous occasions it has hosted the championship.
Germany’s Bernhard Langer won his first senior major in 2010, defeating Corey Pavin by one stroke. England’s Paul Broadhurst also joined the upper echelons of the senior game when he saw off Scott McCarron by two strokes in 2016.
Golf has been played in Carnoustie for well over four centuries. The first indication that the game was being played in the Angus town can be found in the parish records of 1560. In 1842, a 10-hole course was designed by Alan Robertson followed by an 18-hole course by Old Tom Morris in 1857. James Braid extended the layout in 1926, which is essentially the links found today.
Since then, the Carnoustie Championship course has become widely regarded as one of the world’s finest golf courses, as well as being tagged “golf’s greatest test.” The course has been created and refined by some of the most iconic names in golf history to make the most of the dramatic natural elements in the incredible Angus location. Carnoustie’s closing stretch of holes is without doubt one of the most challenging in the world and will provide for some dramatic finishes.
