The Royal Liverpool Golf Club will host the 2023 Open Championship, one year later than expected, after Covid-19 cancelled out this year’s edition of the event.
With Royal St George’s set to welcome the 149th playing of the Open next year, the announcement confirms the shifting on of each venue for the upcoming years.
The famous Old Course at St Andrews in Scotland will then accommodate the milestone of the 150th Open Championship in 2022, in what promises to be a historic competition.
‘We are grateful to everyone involved at the clubs and at our partner organisations for supporting our plans and showing flexibility to adapt their own schedules,’ R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said on Monday.
The organisation also confirmed Royal Troon, Scotland as the venue for the 2023 edition of the event after it was previously confirmed for 2022 before the pandemic broke out.
