The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is a unique and fantastic opportunity to witness golf's very best play on three of the most prestigious links courses in the world – the Championship Course (Carnoustie), Kingsbarns and the 'home of golf', the Old Course (St Andrews).
The championship incorporates two separate competitions – an individual professional tournament for the world's leading golfers alongside a team competition, pairing top amateur golfers with the professionals. Expect to see some of the biggest names from entertainment, sport and business, such as Samuel L Jackson and Sir Bobby Charlton teeing up alongside Sam Torrance and Vijay Singh.
