THE OPEN was first held at Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland “The Birth of Golf” in 1860 which is the oldest of the four major championships in professional golf (Masters, US open, and PGA Championship).
Traditionally, THE OPEN was always played at the links course featuring windy beaches with uneven greens, and offered the galleries to enjoy the exciting games in a fun way.
The OPEN held in 1870 and won by Young Tom Morris for a third time in a row, was the last tournament to award the original trophy, the Challenge Belt. The OPEN was re-held in 1873 with the new trophy, Claret Jug, which became one of the most iconic trophies in all of sports.
