Product Description

Royal St George’s founded in 1887 and intended by its founder, Dr William Laidlaw Purves, to be a rival to St Andrew’s in the South of England, St George’s is consistently ranked amongst the leading courses in the World. The Club occupies a unique place in the history of golf, for it was here in 1894, that the Open Championship was first played outside Scotland. In all there have been 14 Open Championships played at St George’s, more than any course outside of Scotland.

The 2020 Open Championship will be the 149th Open Championship, held 16–19 July 2020 at Royal St George’s Golf Club in Sandwich, England. It will be the 15th Open Championship played at Royal St George’s, and the first since Darren Clarke won in 2011.

Royal St George’s became the first course outside Scotland to host golf’s oldest Championship in 1894 and 2020 will be the 15th time The Open has been contested on the historic Kent links.

It was last played at Royal St George’s in 2011 when Darren Clarke showed his mastery of links golf in challenging weather conditions to hold off Americans Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson to become Champion Golfer of the Year.

And the Northern Irishman admits victory was the realisation of a childhood dream.

“It was an unbelievable feeling to lift the Claret Jug and know that my name was displayed on the trophy alongside so many of the greatest players ever to play the game,” said Clarke.

Paul Carter CBE, Leader of Kent County Council, said: “We are absolutely delighted that we have secured The Open in 2020 at Royal St George’s. 

“In 2011 there were over 180,000 visitors to The Open, and an extra 37,000 passengers travelled on the special High Speed train service from London St Pancras.

“The benefits to the tourist economy was massive, amounting to over £64 million. Significant transport improvements were needed to improve spectator flows in and out of Royal St George’s and KCC has played a leading role in facilitating partnership funding with the Local Enterprise Partnership and District Councils Dover and Thanet.”
