A Look at The Golf Open 2020
Royal St George’s, based in nearby Sandwich, is set to host the 149th golf championship in July 2020.
This will be the 15th time Royal St George’s has hosted the event. The last time was in 2011, when Darren Clarke lifted the claret jug.
Royal St George’s hosted in 1894, which was the first time the competition was held outside of Scotland.
Author Ian Fleming featured the club in his 1959 novel Goldfinger under the name Royal St Marks.
The course features one of the deepest bunkers in championship golf. Nicknamed “Himalaya,” at 40 feet deep and set into a dune, the bunker is a formidable sight for any player.
