InfoArchitect: Dr. William Laidlaw Purves
Founded in 1887 and intended by its founder, Dr William Laidlaw Purves, to be a rival to St Andrew’s in the South of England, St George’s is consistently ranked amongst the leading courses in the World.
The Club occupies a unique place in the history of golf, for it was here in 1894, that the Open Championship was first played outside Scotland.
In all there have been 14 Open Championships played at St George’s, more than any course outside of Scotland.
The Open Championship returns to St George’s for the 15th time in 2020, when the Club will host the 149th Open Championship
