Encyclopedia > Scottish Open (golf)

The Scottish Open, which is currently sponsored by Barclays Bank, is one of the richer golf tournaments on the PGA European Tour. It was a European Tour event in 1972 and 1973, and after a twelve year break has been a fixture in the schedule under a variety of names since 1986. Since 1996 it has taken place at Loch Lomond Golf Club north of Glasgow. It takes place the week before The Open Championship, and some concern has been expressed that the host course, which is very different from the links courses on which the Open is played, puts European Tour players at a disadvantage in the subsequent major, compared to their leading rivals from the PGA Tour, who traditionally spend a week practising for the Open on links courses in Ireland.
