The Story of the Open Championship in Scotland

A timeline of its development

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.

Yes (in theory) although its never easy to get them all to line up sequentially and Muirfield is never straight-forward either
