Senior open goes to Turnberry in 2003

The 2003 Seniors British Open will be played at Turnberry, the European Seniors Tour announced yesterday. The championship, which has been staged at Turnberry on four occasions, will be played over the Ailsa Course.

"Turnberry has proved itself to be one of the best championship venues and will undoubtedly attract the top senior players," the European Tour’s chief executive Ken Schofield said in a statement.

The famous Scottish links hosted the inaugural event in 1987, which proved to be so successful that the championship returned for the next three years.

Turnberry’s Ailsa Course became world-renowned in 1977 when Americans Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson went head to head in the final round of the British Open.

Japan’s Noboru Sugai won this year’s Seniors British Open, staged at Royal County Down Golf Club in Northern Ireland in July.
