This is fantastic news for Castle Stuart Golf Links and, more importantly, Scottish Golf. The Scottish Open is one of the biggest events on the European Tour and it currently occupies one of the most sought after slots on the European Tour calendar. There was widespread speculation that if a sponsor wasn’t found, the French Open would replace the Scottish the week prior to the Open Championship. However, it looks like the European Tour will hold out for a sponsor on the back of the success of this year’s event. Having attended the event myself, I fully agree with the decision.
