Golf - The Barclays Scottish Open, Castle Stuart July 7-11
Come and see some of the world’s top golfers this July here in the North of Scotland.
The Barclays Scottish Open has become an iconic golf tournament for both Scotland and the international golfing calendar. In 2011 the tournament has moved to the stunning and challenging Highland links course, Castle Stuart, overlooking the Moray Firth in Inverness Scotland.
The prize fund for The 2011 Barclays Scottish Open is £3 million and to claim the first prize of £500,000, the players will have to conquer a new golf course which has received worldwide praise since its official opening in the summer of 2009.
Co-designed by Managing Partner Mark Parsinen - who was also responsible for the design of Kingsbarns in Fife – and American golf course architect Gil Hanse, the course was voted as Best New Course for 2009 by Golf Magazine USA while Ron Whitten, writing in the December 2010 issue of Golf Digest USA, stated that "Castle Stuart might be the most perfectly conceived and executed design ever built.
