The excitement of the 2020 AIG Women's Open at Royal Troon has barely begun and we're already getting more great news.
The R&A has revealed that the AIG Women's Open will take place at five of the most iconic courses in the UK over the next few years, and we see this as further proof that the women's game is rapidly growing from strength to strength.
So without further ado, we're proud to reveal the venues for the Major championship from 2021 to 2025....
2021 – Carnoustie
2022 – Muirfield
2023 – Walton Heath
2024 – St Andrews
2025 – Royal Porthcawl
Oh. My. Word.
We don't know which one we're more buzzing for.
It's the first time that Muirfield, Walton Heath and Royal Porthcawl have ever hosted the huge event, and we can't wait to see what the girls make of these historic courses.
Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said:
“With our partners at AIG, we have a real ambition to grow and elevate the AIG Women's Open for the benefit of the world's leading golfers and so we are excited to confirm our intention to play the next five championships at these renowned courses.
“It has truly been a collaborative effort from all the venues involved to make this schedule possible and the flexibility that they have shown in adjusting their own calendars has been vital in allowing us to confirm our plans for the championship through to 2025.
“We are grateful for their support, particularly during a time when golf has been impacted by the on-going pandemic, and we look forward to working with these venues to deliver an outstanding experience to be enjoyed by everyone involved in the AIG Women’s Open.”
You can start planning next year's trip to Carnoustie now, too.
