Women's British Open Golf Courses: Where They've Played

Turnberry is on the list of Womens British Open golf courses

The Women's British Open is one of the major championships in women's golf and the LPGA Tour. And the roster of golf courses on which the tournament has taken place is a roster of some of England's and Scotland's best.

Unlike the men's British Open, the Women's British Open is not played exclusively on links courses — plenty of parkland-style courses have hosted the tournament.

Also unlike the men's Open, the WBO does not have a policy of alternating between golf courses in England and Scotland. Although Scotland courses are definitely in the mix today, the tournament was played exclusively in England from 1976 through 2001.
