The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is one of the world’s leading golf events. It is a magnet for golfers from every corner of the globe. A celebration of links golf, it is played over three magnificent courses – the Old Course (St Andrews), the Championship Course, Carnoustie (near Dundee) and Kingsbarns Golf Links (10km south of St Andrews). The championship has a unique format, incorporating two separate competitions – an individual professional tournament for the world’s leading golfers with a US$5 million prize fund, and a team competition which features some of the most celebrated amateur golfers playing alongside the professionals.

The first Championship was staged in 2001, but Alfred Dunhill’s connection with St Andrews, through the Alfred Dunhill Cup, goes back to 1985, giving an unbroken span of more than 35 years supporting golf at St Andrews.



There will be free entry on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at all three venues (Old Course St. Andrews, Kingsbarns, Carnoustie)

Tickets for Sunday at St Andrews are available at a charge.

ALL tickets for the 2021 event will be E-Tickets, with no printed tickets available for purchase.
