Located on the beautiful west coast of Scotland, Dundonald Golf Links is proud to be hosting The AAM Scottish Open for the first time in 2017 (12th -16th July), marking a new chapter in Dundonald’s history.
Dundonald has already been the venue of important tournaments in recent years including, the first stage of the European Tour Qualifying School (2008-2011), Senior Open Qualifying (2012), The Boys Amateur Golf Championship (2014) and AAM Ladies Scottish Open in 2015 & 2016.
Who will be there?
As always the event has attracted some headline acts, with Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Henrik Stenson and defending champion Alex Noren confirming their place. It will be a special event for Henrik Stenson in particular as this will be his first time back in Scotland since he won The Open Championship at Royal Troon last year, just 6 miles from Dundonald. Commenting on the upcoming tournament Henrik had this to say:
Obviously it is going to make it a special week for me at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. It’s a tournament which has helped me prepare really well for The Open and I’m looking forward to the new venue at Dundonald
As well as the big names, some of Scotland’s home grown players will be making an appearance including Paul Lawrie, David Drysdale, Stephen Gallacher, Richie Ramsay, Marc Warren and Russell Knox (Scotland’s highest ranked player at number 21). Russell Knox said:
I can’t wait – the Scottish Open is the number one tournament on my schedule every year. I love going home to play in front of the Scottish fans
