The Open was first founded by pioneering golfers who wished to crown an individual the Golf Champion of the year. This first Open at Prestwick Golf Club on 17 October 1860, saw the winner receive the Challenge belt, a prize fabricated from Moroccan leather and worth £25. Nowadays, characterised by its unrelenting challenge, the open sees hundreds of players compete to win the Claret Jug and the coveted title of “Open Champion”. As the oldest of Golf’s four major championships, The Open attracts avid golfers, tourists, corporate hospitality events and locals alike.
Having first hosted the open in 1954, the Royal Birkdale has been one of the most regular hosts of the open championships and will host The Open in 2017. Nestled on the coast in Southport, amidst spectacular sand-dunes, is their links course which is famous around the world. Having entertained the most international and championship events since World War 2, Royal Birkdale is amongst the top 35 clubs in the world.
