The Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open heads to The Renaissance Club in North Berwick this year, for the 37th staging of the event.

It’s one of the most important events on the calendar for golf enthusiasts but also a good day out for the whole family, with food and drink outlets in the championship village, as well as music and retail.

The professional is part of the Rolex Series, which means it’s one of the European Tour’s most prestigious events.

There’s a prize fund of $7 million dollars up for grabs, so the competition will be fierce.
