Royal Portrush hosts 148th Open
July 18-21, 2019 -- The 148th Open will be played at the Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush Golf Club in County Antrim, marking a historic return to Northern Ireland after a near 70-year absence.
The course has undergone major changes as part of preparations to host the tournament, including the introduction of two new holes – the long par-5 7th and the par-4 8th.
Nine of the holes have new tees and several new bunkers have been introduced, including five on the new 7th hole and three on the new 8th. The changes means the course has been lengthened by 201 yards to 7,344 yards.
