These are the venues that will stage the R&A’s biggest championships in 2021
Royal Dornoch will host the Men’s Home Internationals in April as the R&A kicks-off its schedule of amateur and international championships in 2021.
The governing body has announced a revised schedule for tournaments and the Home Internationals, being staged by the St-Andrews based organisation for the first time, will start the year to help Great Britain & Ireland’s preparations for the Walker Cup in the USA in May.
While Woodhall Spa will hold a consolidated Home Internationals from August 4 to 6, Ganton stages the Senior Amateur Championship from July 6 to 9.
Phil Anderton, the R&A’s chief development officer, said: “We have considered a range of factors in revising our schedule of amateur championships and international matches and are grateful to all of the venues for their support and understanding to allow us to make these changes.
“We are hopeful that we will be able to stage these events as planned but we recognise that the situation with the Covid-19 pandemic still remains uncertain and will adapt our plans in line with the guidance provided by governments and our medical advisers.”
