The Scottish Open will be held at Castle Stuart for at least the next two years after a major sponsor was found for the event. Global investment management group, Aberdeen Asset Management, have agreed to sponsor the event for three years, with the first two definitely being held at the Highlands links course, with an option to continue for a third year.
The announcement was made at Edinburgh Castle at the weekend and is a major coup for the tournament as it was without a main sponsor until now after Barclays ended their 2013 association with the tournament, leaving serious doubt hanging over this year’s event.
George O’Grady (European Tour Chief Executive) said “We are delighted to welcome Aberdeen Asset Management, an eminent global company based in Scotland, as title sponsor of the Scottish Open, one of the most prestigious tournaments on The European Tour International Schedule which, this year, will once again be played on the spectacular links layout at Castle Stuart.”
