THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY

THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP 2021 ST ANDREWS, SCOTLAND

v1.3


THE 150 ANNIVERSARY

Welcome After 161 years and 149 Open Championships, The Open returns to The Home of Golf, St Andrews, for the monumental 150th anniversary. The Open 2021 will go down as one of the most historic golfing events of this generation. It will be played on The Old Course at St Andrews, where Zach Johnson was crowned Champion back in 2015 when The Open was last played here. Johnson was triumphant after an intense four hole play-off against Louis Oosthuizen and Australia’s own Marc Leishman. St Andrews has had its fair share of dramatic Open Championship finishes and boasts an illustrious list of Champions including Jack Nicklaus, Peter Thomson, John Daly, Sir Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods to name a few. The 150th Anniversary will be fiercely contested by the world’s best golfers; who will put on a show for a chance to etch their name onto the famous Claret Jug for this momentous occasion. And you can be there, watching the final moments; the calm, the focus, the tears and the triumph.

Who will be the 150th Champion Golfer of the Year?

Featured Golf Courses Across many of our Classic and Deluxe Packages, we have included rounds of golf in St Andrews during The Open week, which is a special experience. We hope you make the most of it. If you select a package that does not include golf, ask us about adding a round of golf to that package. In addition, we can arrange pre/post golf trave; extensions around Scotland and have a Highlands Luxury Golf Tour that plays Royal Dornoch twice amongst other courses.

The Duke’s, St Andrews Highly regarded as one of the finest heathland championship courses in Britain, The Duke’s offers an impressive setting with panoramic views over the countryside, St Andrews and St Andrews Bay. The Peter Thomson course demands accuracy and inventive play and rewards power golfers, while appealing to all levels. We have tee times on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during The Open. All rounds include motorised buggies, 2-course lunch with beer or wine.

The Kittocks Course, St Andrews

The Torrance Course, St Andrews

Kingsbarns Golf Links

Bruce Devlin is known for creating The Kittocks as well as The King’s at Gleneagles and the exclusive Secession Club in South Carolina. The long and challenging course runs along the coastline, offering spectacular views back to the medievel town of St Andrews.

Former Ryder Cup legend, Sam Torrance loves deep bunkers, large greens and links golf in general. His course reflects his loves and just like its’ sister course next door (The Kittocks), it’s situated clifftop, in true links style; where the weather can control the outcome of your day.

Just 7 miles from St Andrews, Kingsbarns has built a renowned global reputation, which makes sense from the moment you enter the course. Each hole embraces the sea one way or another and the sheer magnitude of the course is certainly impressive. Enjoy quality service and facilities.

Each day we have tee times or shotgun starts. Normal tee times are walking only, with pull trolleys available. For shotgun starts, motorised buggies are included.

Each day we have tee times or shotgun starts. Normal tee times are walking only, with pull trolleys available. For shotgun starts, motorised buggies are included.

What’s the difference between a Package and a Tour? Packages are designed for independent travellers and are not escorted dayto-day by Events Travel staff. With a Package, you’re travelling on your own, but you may see the Events Travel Onsite Team at formal events, transfers or ticket collection points. With a Tour, it’s the opposite and you will be escorted throughout the trip by a Tour Manager. Your Tour Manager is there to make sure the trip runs smoothly, to point you in the right direction and to make sure your needs are met. All our Tours are small-groups, intimate and with like-minded travellers. Both Packages and Tours are carefully designed to balance event and destination experiences and are often themed, for example golf, gourmet or nature.

Can you book my flights? Yes. We are an accredited IATA Agency and ticket your flights in-house, giving you access to the best available fares .

I have a corporate group, can you assist us? Absolutely. We specialise in group travel, particularly corporate groups. Your group will have a dedicated Travel Expert on hand to assist your group from start to finish. Get in touch today.
