Play The Open Qualifying Courses With GolfNow
This year's 150th Open Championship at St Andrews is particularly historic, a milestone event that will stand as a truly memorable occasion.
Golfers will be marking that in various ways; thousands will be at The Old Course, millions will follow on TV, while others shall take to the fairways of a fabulous venue of their own choosing.
One fitting manner in which to celebrate The Open would be playing a layout that has previously been used for Regional or Final Qualifying. These are dotted throughout the UK & Ireland and represent some of the finest destinations in the game.
Bringing you closer to them, our friends GolfNow - who offer tee times at wonderful courses - have presented a special The Open Qualifier Courses Hub, showcasing ten places that you could play before, during or after this year's Open.
We take a closer look at those venues below - an endeavour that has inspired us to start planning where to go!

Review Comment: "All the trouble is in front of you. No tricks. Hit good shots and get rewarded. Hit poor shots and get punished. Terrific greens for April. I could be a member here and never tire of it. Played in 3/4 club wind and still enjoyed it immensely."
