Dundonald Links to host the 2017 Scottish Open

Dundonald Links

Dundonald Links will enter the rotation for the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, hosting the event for the first time in 2017.

The new host is the latest Kyle Phillips design to host a European Tour event, with Kingsbarns a part of the three-course rotation at the Dunhill Links Championship and The Grove hosting this year's British Masters, as well formerly hosting the WGC-American Express Championship, won by Tiger Woods.

Dundonald owner Loch Lomond Golf Club is being rewarded for investing substantial money in the club's infrastructure, including the construction of a new clubhouse which should be completed by the end of 2016. In addition, Phillips was brought back in to enlarge several putting surfaces and soften contours on three of them.

Loch Lomond hosted the Scottish Open from 1996-2010. This year, Castle Stuart hosts for the fourth time, hosting from 2011-13. Gullane hosted last year.
