British Open Future Sites and Dates

When and where will the British Open golf tournament be played in coming years? Future dates and golf courses are listed below for this event, which is formally named The Open Championship (often shortened to The Open).

The British Open is the oldest of the four major championships in men's professional golf, dating to 1860. Today it is the last of the four majors on the golf calendar each year, typically taking place in mid-July and after The Masters, PGA Championship and U.S. Open have already been played.

Future Open Championships

  • 2024 — Royal Troon Golf Club in Troon, Ayshire, Scotland, July 18-21
  • 2025 — Royal Portrush Golf Club in Portrush, Antrim, Northern Ireland, July 17-20
  • 2026 — Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, Merseyside, England, July 16-19
The British Open uses a regular rotation of golf courses, known as "the Open rota." The golf courses — all seaside links — currently in that rotation are The Old Course at St. Andrews, Muirfield, Royal St. George's, Royal Liverpool, Royal Troon, Royal Lytham & St. Annes, Carnoustie, Royal Portrush and Royal Birkdale.

There is not a specific schedule of golf courses assigned to years, however. But The Old Course is visited by the tournament roughly every five years, while the years between visits to the other courses in the rota vary. Royal Portrush is the most recent addition to the rota, whereas Turnberry appears to have been dropped for the forseeable future.
