Royal St George’s, also known as Sandwich, is a classic links test and was the first English course to host The Open.
Founded in 1887, it played host to the Amateur Championship in 1892 and to The Open two years later, when J. H. Taylor was the winner with a four-round total of 326, the highest winning aggregate ever recorded in the Championship
The course has its share of great champions, including Harry Vardon who won two of his Opens at the venue, in 1899 and 1911, and Walter Hagen who also triumphed in 1922 and 1928.
