150th Anniversary of The Open, in 2021, will be at St Andrews
St Andrews is to be the venue for the 150th anniversary of The Open in July 2021. It will also be the 30th time that The Open has been held at St Andrews.
Martin Slumbers, chief executive of the Royal and Ancient, said, "The Open holds a very special place in the hearts of golf and sports fans around the world. The Championship enjoys a historic and celebrated relationship with the Old Course in St Andrews and we are excited to be marking the occasion of the 150th Championship at the home of golf in 2021.
"St Andrews has produced a revered group of outstanding champion golfers since The Open was first played on the Old Course in 1873.
"Once again we look forward to seeing the greatest players take on the challenge of the world's most iconic links course in their pursuit of the claret jug."
This year's host for The Open is Carnoustie. Next year it will be Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland and in 2020 Royal St George's in Kent.
