The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is just around the corner, and the excitement in the air is palpable.
A Star-Studded Field
Happening from October 5-8, 2023, this year’s championship promises a showdown of epic proportions. Major Champion Matt Fitzpatrick and popular American Matt Kuchar are among the illustrious golfers who’ll grace the greens. And let’s not forget Ryan Fox, the defending champion.

Imagine playing alongside the likes of Sir Tony McCoy or Dutch football superstar Ruud Gullit. It’s a dream come true for any golf aficionado!
Where the Action Happens
The championship takes you on a journey across three iconic courses: the Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie, and Kingsbarns Golf Links. Each course offers its unique challenges and charms, making this tournament a treat for both players and spectators alike.
