Dig out the Wellies, Umbrellas, and Windproof Jackets… it’s time for the British Golf Open

British Open Golf ChampionshipThis week sees yet another major British sporting event with The Open, golf’s only major held outside of America, beginning at Lytham St Anne’s in Lancashire.

The British Open is traditionally played on links golf courses which means they are coastal, tend to be open and exposed, and are therefore subject to variable winds which will give even the world’s best players a challenge.  This year will be no exception as the Royal Lytham St Anne’s course in North West England is going to play really tough after all the wet weather in recent weeks.

However, on the bright side this could well favour the British golfers who should be more used to the ‘British Summer’!  Let’s hope so, we are due to a British winner, so come on Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and the rest.

If you are heading to The Open for a weekend break or short break then wrap up warm and have a great time.
