About The Scottish Open

The Scottish Open is traditionally held a week before the Open Championship and in recent years, after leaving its long time home of Loch Lomond in 2011, the event has toured some spectacular links courses including the likes of Castle Stuart, Royal Aberdeen and Gullane Golf Club, and has attracted some of the biggest names in golf including Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler, who all look to fine tune their games on a traditional links course before heading to the 3rd major of the season. The first Scottish Open was established in 1935, and since then, when the total prize purse was just £750, the event has grown into one of the richest on the European Tour.

The 2017 Scottish Open was held at Dundonald Links in Ayrshire. A host of top players assembled to test their game against the Kyle Phillips designed course. Whilst we saw the likes of Rickie Fowler, Padraig Harrington and Ian Poulter challenge the leaderboard at times it was Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello who claimed the title, winning in a playoff against Hertfordshire's Callum Shinkwin. With The 2018 Scottish Open due to return to Gullane we're sure to see a fantastic tournament once more in the run up to The 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie Golf Links.
