British Open Championship
There are professional golf tournaments, and then there is the British Open Championship. Whether it’s the sport’s historic ties to the United Kingdom or the unpredictable weather that unfailingly seems to berate world-class competitors each year, people are drawn to this event. At Stratos, we can’t guarantee a perfect forecast in Angus, Scotland, but we can assure you of comfortable charter flights to the British Open.
Simply referred to as The Open, this historic tourney is the oldest of the four PGA Majors. Held annually in the United Kingdom, it is the only major outside the United States. The other include:
- The Masters
- U.S. Open
- PGA Championship
The Open follows a 72-hole stroke format and is contested over four days. The number of entrants is limited to 156, which is reduced to 70 (including ties) following a cut after 36 holes. The field is typically made up of:
- World’s leading professionals
- Winners of top amateur championships
- Winners of top qualifying events
The current prize purse for The Open sits around US$10 million, the bulk of which went to Jordan Speech in 2017 after he won the 146th Open at the Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England.
The Open will be held in Southport this year at the Carnoustie Golf Links for the eighth time. Booking charter flights to the British Open is the most convenient way to reach this part of the world, and Stratos Jets is the charter jet company to do it. We have more than a decade of experience in assisting travellers fly in stress-free style.
One of the many benefits of arranging charter flights to the British Open is you’re not limited to commercial airport hubs like Edinburgh International (EGPH), which is nearly 90 minutes from Angus. By landing at Dundee Airport (EGPN), you can be at Carnoustie in about half and hour. Furthermore, the landing strip at this airport is capable of handling aircraft as large as the Airbus A318.
