Royal return for Northern Open

Celebrations to mark 400 years of golf at Royal Dornoch will include the Northern Open being held there for the first time in more than two decades.

The 72-hole event will take place at the renowned Sutherland venue on June 21-24 next year as part of a new-look Tartan Tour schedule. This will be the ninth time the Northern Open has visited Royal Dornoch, but the first since 1994.

“We’re delighted to be heading back to Dornoch after a gap of 22 years. We see this as a continuation of bringing the iconic Northern courses back on to the rota,” said PGA in Scotland secretary Shona Malcolm.

“Royal Dornoch is delighted to be hosting the Northern Open for the first time since 1994,” said the club’s general manager, Neil Hampton.

“The club is committed to the game of golf and shows this in many ways, one of which is hosting the most prestigious events. The Northern Open has a long and proud history and many of the game’s greats have won the event at Royal Dornoch. Everyone at Royal Dornoch looks forward to seeing what today’s professionals can do on our Championship links.”
