About this package
The Open Courses package is tailored around the Open Championship venues in the north-east of Scotland. Your package will be centred around The Old Course, St. Andrews, a host of the championship on 29 occasions, and the Championship Course at Carnoustie which has hosted the event 8 times. You will also be able to select from the final qualifying courses previously used during qualification for each of these venues in 1999 and 2005.
The final qualifying courses for the 1999 Open Championship at Carnoustie were Montrose Medal, Monifieth Medal, Panmure and Downfield. Dating back to the 16th century, Montrose is thought to be the 5th oldest golf course in the world, and along with Monifieth and Panmure is one of the finest links challenges in the Angus area. Downfield is a parkland course and has been described by Paul Lawrie (1999 Open Champion) as "one of the finest inland courses in Britain". The final qualifying courses for the 2005 Open Championship at St. Andrews were Scotscraig, Leven Links, Lundin Links and Ladybank. Scotscraig is reputedly the 13th oldest golf club in the world and along with Leven and Lundin Links dates back to the 19th century. All 3 courses are stunning examples of Scottish links golf. Ladybank is a parkland course designed by Old Tom Morris, and is rated amongst the top inland courses in the country.
This package allows for the choice of up to 4 qualifying courses at the discretion of the customer. These will be added to the venues at St. Andrews and Carnoustie to complete this fantastic package, with prices starting from £XXXX per person.
*** Prices quoted are per person and are based on full packages with 4 golfers in a party and double occupancy at hotels. Prices may vary depending on numbers travelling and length of stay. During peak season and times of high demand accommodation costs may increase.
