Castle Stuart Golf Links to host Scottish Open 2016

The Aberdeen Asset Scottish Open will continue to showcase Scotland’s finest links courses with the announcement that Castle Stuart Golf Links will host the championship in 2016.

Castle Stuart Golf Links may only have been open since 2009 but the Inverness course has already written itself into Scottish Open history having hosted the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open on three occasions between 2011 and 2013, with Luke Donald, Jeev Milkha Singh and Mickelson prevailing as champions at the Moray Firth venue.

Mark Parsinen, Managing Partner of Castle Stuart Golf Links said: “We are naturally delighted to  be selected to host the 2016 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and to once again be working with The European Tour to attract some of the world’s finest golfers back to the links here at Castle Stuart.

“Not only is this a great announcement for the team at Castle Stuart but it is also wonderful news for the whole of the highlands community, who I am sure will turn out in great numbers once again to support this flagship European Tour event and help to make it a most successful week.”
