Kingsbarns Golf Links Chosen To Host Women's British Open In 2017
Kingsbarns Golf Links "has been chosen as the venue for the Women's British Open in 2017 -- the first time the course will host a major championship," according to the BBC. The Fife course "has hosted qualifying for both the men's and women's Open qualifying previously and, since 2001, the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship." The Women's British Open "will also be held in Scotland next year, at Turnberry's Ailsa course, then heads to Woburn in London in 2016." Club Dir Art Dunkley said, "People have said many flattering things about our course and facilities since we opened in 2000. But being selected to host our first major championship is the greatest accolade of all" (BBC, 8/22).
