R&A confirms Royal Liverpool, Royal Troon will host Open Championship in 2023, 2024

Though it doesn’t come as much of a surprise, the R&A has confirmed the dates and venues for the Open Championship in 2023 and 2024. The 151st Open will be played at Royal Liverpool from July 20-23, 2023 while Royal Troon will host the following championship July 18-21, 2024.

The announcement comes after the R&A juggled the rescheduling of this year’s lost Open Championship. The 149th Open remains on the books at Royal St. George’s and will be played July 15-18, 2021. That allows the 150th Open Championship to still take place at St. Andrews in 2022.

“We have been working closely with Royal Liverpool and Royal Troon and the relevant local agencies to reschedule the Championships,” Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said in a release. “We are grateful to everyone involved at the clubs and at our partner organizations for supporting our plans and showing flexibility to adapt their own schedules.  We can now look forward to seeing the world’s best players competing at these outstanding links courses in 2023 and 2024.”

When the Open heads to Royal Liverpool in 2023, it will be for the 13th time – and the first since Rory McIlroy lifted the Claret Jug there in 2014. Most recently, the top amateurs competed there in September 2019 for the Walker Cup. The Americans carried off a win on foreign soil for the first time since 2007.

The Open will return to Royal Troon, site of Henrik Stenson’s memorable final round duel with Phil Mickelson in 2016, for the 10th time.
