Where is The Open being played?


Venues and dates for 2022-2025

The 18th green on the Old Course at St Andrews

Four spectacular links courses will play host to The Open between 2022 and 2025.

If you need a reminder of when and where golf’s original Championship will be played in the coming years, here are the dates and venues for The 150th Open, The 151st Open, The 152nd Open and The 153rd Open.


The 150th Open | St Andrews | 10-17 July 2022

The 150th Open will take place at the Home of Golf, the Old Course at St Andrews.

No venue in the history of the Championship has welcomed more Opens than St Andrews, which will serve as host for the 30th time this July.

The first Open to be played at St Andrews was in 1873 - also the first time the Championship was not held at Prestwick - while the Old Course last hosted golf’s original Major in 2015.

Zach Johnson was crowned the Champion Golfer of the Year on that occasion, adding his name to an illustrious list of winners to have lifted the Claret Jug at the venue.

Peter Thomson, Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros and Tiger Woods are but a few of the previous winners at St Andrews, but who will follow in their footsteps in this year’s milestone Championship?


The 151st Open | Royal Liverpool | 16-23 July 2023

Royal Liverpool will stage the Championship for the 13th time in 2023.

Rory McIlroy was crowned Champion Golfer the last time The Open was held at the venue in Hoylake, winning the 2014 edition by two strokes from Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia.

Two of the three amateurs who have won The Open Championship were members at Royal Liverpool, with John Ball and Harold Hilton among Hoylake’s most famous sons.

The other amateur Champion Golfer, Bobby Jones, won his third Open at the course, completing the second of four wins in his unmatched Grand Slam.

Royal Liverpool first hosted The Open in 1897 as Hilton prevailed ahead of James Braid while it was also the scene of Tiger Woods’ emotional victory in 2006 following the death of his father.


The 152nd Open | Royal Troon | 14-21 July 2024

Royal Troon’s Old Course will provide the setting for The 152nd Open in 2024 - eight years after the South Ayrshire venue last acted as host.

It will be the 10th time Royal Troon has held the Championship, having first been called upon back in 1923 after being re-designed by five-time Champion Golfer Braid.

Troon boasts one of the toughest back nines in the world and also delivered one of the most memorable final-round duels in recent Open history when it served as host for The 145th Open in 2016.

On that occasion, Henrik Stenson prevailed in a stunning battle with 2013 Champion Golfer Phil Mickelson, after shooting a final-round 63 for a record 20-under par total.

Arnold Palmer was also crowned Champion Golfer for the second time at Troon, with Tom Watson, Bobby Locke, Mark Calcavecchia and Justin Leonard among the other winners at the venue.


The 153rd Open | Royal Portrush | 13-20 July 2025

Northern Ireland will make a swift and triumphant return to hosting duties in 2025 as the world’s best golfers return to Royal Portrush for The 153rd Open.

The venue on the picturesque County Antrim coast held The 148th Open in 2019 - 68 years after the Championship was last played in Northern Ireland - to universal acclaim.

Irishman Shane Lowry ensured it was a memorable occasion as he delivered a sensational performance to become Champion Golfer of the Year.

Portrush attracted a record attendance for the Championship outside of St Andrews as 237,750 fans watched the enthralling action unfold throughout the week on the Dunluce Links.

Max Faulkner won the Claret Jug when Portrush hosted The Open for the first time in 1951 and The 153rd Open will be only the third time the Championship has been held there.
