The R&A extends its gratitude to our Official Suppliers for their support of The Open Championship.
Glenmorangie, Scotland’s favourite single malt whisky, is proud to be the ‘Spirit of The Open Championship’.
Both Glenmorangie and The Open have a proud heritage dating back over 150 years. Whilst The Open is golf’s oldest Major Championship dating back to 1860, Glenmorangie was first produced in 1843 and is now a leading global player in premium single malts, enjoyed in over 130 countries worldwide.
Just as Glenmorangie goes to unnecessary lengths to craft its award winning single malt whisky — using the tallest stills in Scotland and only the finest quality oak casks — so The Open is renowned every year for its meticulous preparation of the greens, fairways and bunkers of each Championship course as well as the exceptional displays of golfing finesse from the world’s leading players, making Glenmorangie and The Open a natural fit.
As the ‘Spirit of The Open’, Glenmorangie is searching for the world’s most ‘Unnecessarily Well Made’ golf holes.
We’re inviting you to nominate and vote for the world’s greatest golf holes to produce the definitive global list of the finest 18 golfing challenges. A grand prize is on offer to participants: an all-expenses-paid trip of a lifetime to experience our warm hospitality at both the Home of Golf and the Home of Glenmorangie in 2015 – just vote for your favourite golf hole or nominate your own to enter at www.glenmorangie.com/golf.
