The 149th Open will be played from 12-19 July 2020 at Royal St George’s, located in Sandwich, on the South Coast of Kent.

The historic links at Royal St George’s has seen some of golf’s greatest players lift the Claret Jug including Sandy Lyle and Greg Norman, who secured a two-shot victory over Sir Nick Faldo in 1993. The signature 6th hole known as ‘The Maiden’ has been the scene of heartache and glory over the years and is sure to remain a special viewing spot for spectators.
