The British Open's official title is the The Open Championship. However, it is usually referred to as the British Open here to distinguish it from the US Open and many other 'opens' held around the world. The British Open is the oldest of the four Majors, dating back to the 1860s. The tournament is held in July each year.
In 2023, the Open will be played at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake, Merseyside, England. See full list of venues, past and present.
