Golf British Open
16 - 23 July 2018
AT A GLANCE
Dates: 16 Jul 2017 - 23 Jul 2017
Venues: Royal Birkdale
Since its inception in 1860, the British Open has been played over some of the world’s most renowned links courses.
The event has produced an incredible legacy of great champions, including Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson. It is the oldest international championship in professional golf and the Claret Jug, first presented in 1873, is one of the most iconic trophies of all time.
In July 2017, the British Open returns to the Royal Birkdale, one of the most renowned courses in the world, for the tenth time in its history. Located on the 4000-year-old Sefton dune system, the natural landscape provides a stunning playground for golf, while the Birkdale Hills offer panoramic views of the Lancashire coastline to the Irish Sea. Refined many times over the years, Royal Birkdale is one of the finest championship courses today.
The British Open 2017 will once again see the world’s top qualifying golf players meet in the UK summer to compete to become the “Champion Golfer of the Year” and lift the iconic Claret Jug.

The large seaside town of Southport is one of the UK's most popular summer resorts. Historically part of Lancashire, the town was founded in 1792 when William Sutton built a bathhouse at what is now the south end of Lord Street. Southport became a favourite tourist haunt at the turn of the 19th century, with attractions such as the Southport Pier and its tramway, the second longest seaside pleasure pier in the British Isles and Lord Street, an elegant tree-lined shopping destination which was once the home of Napoleon III of France. Featuring quirky galleries, an old theatre, plus new attractions like The Atkinson, there is plenty to see and do for all ages in Southport.
