Watch Golf—the British Open

In July 2012, yes in the middle of the London 2012 Olympics will be the 141st playing of The Open. and for 2012 it is well situated at The Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club. This club is on the coast north of Liverpool. In July 2013 The Open will be at Muirfield near Edinburgh and for 2014 it will be again near Liverpool at The Royal Liverpool Golf Club. For the 2017 event we recommend a 4 night tour with 2 days at The Open. The tour is designed so that non golf fans can enjoy this part of England as much as golf fans.
