Scenes from around Strathmore Golf Centre in Alyth, for the British Open 2021
About the Open
Although we have played various formats over the last 20 years, the current and fully inclusive, Open Golf Championship structure, was first played in 2008 at the St Michaels Golf Club, Leuchars in Fife, where Sidey Ltd first became involved, with the Lord Provost of Fife, by sponsoring the event and its golfers with disabilities. Subsequent Open Championships were held at other venues like Scotscraig Golf Club in Tayport Fife,, an Open qualifying course and the 13th oldest in the world, and several other prestigious venues around the country.
