DP World Tour- Alfred Dunhill Links Championship
September 29 @ 12:00 am
The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is a professional golf tournament and one of the highlights of the DP World Tour. Founded in 2001 to replace the Alfred Dunhill Cup team tournament, it has a unique format of 2 competitions running in parallel: an individual professional tournament and a Pro-Am Team Championship. Some of the biggest names in entertainment and sport have taken part as amateurs, including Bill Murray, Samuel L. Jackson, and Justin Timberlake.
The event is co-hosted by 3 of Scotland’s most historic and scenic golf courses: the Old Course at St. Andrews, Carnoustie, and Kingsbarns. The tournament is held at all 3 courses over the first 3 days, before being held solely at St. Andrews for the final round.
Last year’s event saw a whole host of impressive names from the worlds of acting, music, and sport compete, from Hollywood star Greg Kinnear and pop star Ronan Keating, to Olympian Sir Steve Redgrave and cricket legend Shane Warne. Masters winner Danny Willett won the professional competition.
