Scotland is renowned worldwide as the Home of Golf. With more than 500 years of golf heritage and 550 courses to choose from across the country, golf is a great way to experience Scotland's breathtaking scenery.
When it comes to the Open Championship, regarded by many as the biggest and best event on the global golfing calendar, Scotland and its golfing public are spoilt. That's because the event is staged in the 'Home of Golf' at least every other year, with St Andrews, Muirfield, Carnoustie, Royal Troon and Turnberry all on the list of selected venues for this annual golfing extravaganza.
In 2009, the Open Championship came home to Turnberry after an absence of 15 years. Also, especially for Homecoming Year, on the final practice day record crowds enjoyed a special Homecoming Day at the Open, a great value day out for families and golf lovers.
