Scotland is where all Championship golf originates from. The story begins at Prestwick in 1860. Scotland has a total of seven Open Championship courses, two of which are no longer in today’s rotation. It’s also provided the tournament with the claret jug. Take a brief look at the Open Championship Story as we skim across Scotland through the ages using a map. Could you play all seven of them today in a single week? Yes (in theory) although its never easy to get them all to line up sequentially and Muirfield is never straight-forward either

Click on the number. You might need to slide the map occasionally, and zoom in to view number 6 (Troon) which is next door to number 1 (Prestwick)
