The Renaissance Club in East Lothian has been named as the host venue for the 25th edition of the Scottish Senior Open from August 4-6, 2017.
The Renaissance Club, in the heartland of the Scotland’s celebrated ‘Golf Coast’, opened in 2008 and was designed by world-renowned golf course architect Tom Doak.
It will be the first time The Renaissance Club has hosted the Scottish Seniors Open but played host to the British Boys Amateur Championship in 2016 and will also become a Final Qualifying venue for The Open Championship from 2018-2021.
Councillor John McMillan, East Lothian Council’s spokesperson for Economic Development and Tourism, said “I’m genuinely delighted that the Scottish Senior Open is returning once again to Scotland’s Golf Coast and I’m sure the Renaissance Club will prove to be a first-class venue.
“The quality of our golf is second to none and a course like The Renaissance Club, in its idyllic setting, will, I’m sure, encourage even more golfers to come and experience the game in East Lothian.”
Paul Bush, Director of Events with VisitScotland, said: “We welcome the exciting announcement that The Renaissance Club has been given the opportunity to host the Scottish Senior Open this summer.
“Events like this one on Scotland’s Golf Coast will offer the perfect stage for the 25th edition of this championship and will only enhance further Scotland’s reputation as The Home of Golf.”
