The 153rd Open at Royal Portrush - Carr Golf Travel

The 153rd Open at Royal Portrush

Experience the Craic and watch the thrilling showdown for the Claret Jug.

Carr Golf is an Authorised Provider for the return of The Open to Royal Portrush! This venue holds a special place for the Carr family, as it is where JB Carr won his third Amateur Championship in 1960.

The 2019 Open at Portrush was arguably one of the best ever, with Shane Lowry winning on home turf, we couldn’t have asked for more. Can he successfully defend it in 2025? Can Rory win on home turf? Will Koepka win with his local caddie on the bag?

We can’t wait to see what happens.
Join us for the 153rd Open Championship in 2025.
