Therefore, the debut of the competition organized by the two great circuits takes place. on a historic date: the 50th anniversary of the Open dispute.
North Berwick’s Renaissance Club course is hosting the Genesis Scottish Open for the fourth year in a row, but of course this is the first time we’ve had such a large number of PGA Tour members on the course. Adjacent to Muirfield, the Renaissance Club is located on the south shore of the Firth of Forth.
It is a PAR 70 with five PAR 3s and three PAR 5s. Since the last edition of the tournament, the seventh hole has been reduced to a PAR 4 of 462 metres. It is the most significant of the many changes made to the course, which also includes the creation of new bunkers on the fairways.
