The Open Championship returns to Royal Birkdale in July 2018 which will be the 146th Open Championship. Once again the worlds' greatest golfers will gather to do battle for the famous Claret Jug on the West Coast of England over one of the country's finest links courses. Past winners of The Open at Royal Birkdale include Padraig Harrington most recently in 2008 and Arnold Palmer in 1961.

The Open Championship (sometimes referred to as the British Open), is the oldest of the four major championships in men's golf. Each year the event is hosted by one of several prestigious golf clubs in Britain; however, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (R&A) administers The Open regardless of its site. It is always played on a links course.

The Open Championship is played in July, and is the third major to take place each year, after The Masters Tournament and the U.S. Open, but before the PGA Championship. It has been an official event on the PGA TOUR since 1995, which means thatthe prize money won in the Open by PGA Tour members is included on the official money list. In addition, all Open Championships before that date have been retrospectively classified as PGA Tour wins and the list of leading winners on the PGA Tour has been adjusted to reflect this. The PGA European Tour has always recognized The Open as an official event.

British Open History and Facts

The very first British Open Golf Championship took place in the year 1860 when a meager field of eight competitors played three rounds over the 12 holes that were in those days the entirety of Scotland's Prestwick Golf Club.

Willie Park was the winner as the eight golfers went around the 12 holes three times in one day. The gutta percha ball had just been invented three years earlier, and Park shot a 174, which would equate to 87 strokes if there were 18 holes instead of just 12. The gutta percha could only go a maximum of about 190 yards, compared to today’s launches which approach 375 yards. Because of building space and the course's length, became too short to be played and has not been played there since 1925.

Of the 14 different venues that have been honored as an Open host over the years, five are no longer on the rota for reasons of either lacking the length demanded by today's big hitters, or not having the necessary infrastructure to accommodate the crowds attracted to view an Open.

Of the nine remaining courses, five are Scottish links: St. Andrews, Muirfield, Royal Troon, Carnoustie and Turnberry. The other four are all in England: Royal Lytham & St. Annes, Royal Birkdale, Royal Liverpool and Royal St. George's.

It is known in just about every place but America as, quite simply, “The Open.” The one in the United States has a little to do with that, of course. But the British Open was being played 35 years before the U.S. Open.

It has, furthermore, been called “The World Open.” Players from around the globe participate, as they have for a century or more. The British Open is all-inclusive. The U.S. Open has been moving in that direction for the last decade. But the British Open has been accepting a cast from around the world since the turn of the century.

In 1977 Turnberry's Ailsa Course had been Added to the tour, Turnberry has hosted the Open three times so far with undoubtedly many more to come.

Though many things have changed over the intervening 143 years, much has stayed the same, and the Open, the world's most historic golf tournament, will always be played over an elite list of Britain's very best links.
