The Open 2022 - Course Info and Closures

We are delighted to be staging The Open Championship on the Old Course for a record 30th occasion in 2022. As with any major championship a lot of tournament infrastructure will be put in place in the months leading up to July.

Disruption will be kept to a minimum but golfers should be aware of extra noise associated with the erection of grandstands and scoreboards whilst playing the course. In addition, it will be necessary to limit access to our facilities as follows.

Please note The Castle Course will remain open throughout the preparation period and playing of the Championship.

Keep up to date on preparations via our social channels and latest news page.

Golf instruction will still be available using the latest technology throughout the closure period, with the exception of the Championship week itself.

Course Protection

It will be necessary to protect areas of fairways and rough on the Old Course in the months leading up to the Championship. This will be done in the following ways:

Fairways – a number of fairway landing areas will be marked and a golfer whose ball lands in this area will still play from the same position but will need to play their shot from a small astroturf mat which will be provided.

Rough – some areas of rough will be roped off to try to reduce the trampling of the grass and allow it to grow. A golfer whose ball lies in this roped off area will still play the ball as it lies but should refrain from taking a trolley into the area.

All other aspects of the course should remain in play although this may change subject to weather conditions.
