The Open Golf 2017 - Aboard 'The Great Briton'

Royal Birkdale, Lancashire - Friday 21 July 2017 

The Open Golf Championship returns to England in 2017 and will take place at the beautiful Royal Birkdale. We are pleased to offer a superb luxury rail travel package to Royal Birkdale aboard the Great Briton dining train for Friday 21st July 2017

A mouth-watering battle on the final day of the 2016 tournament saw Henrik Stenson beat Phil Mickelson by three shots whilst carding a joint record eight-under-par of 63, to win his first Open Championship. Since first hosting The Open in 1954, the Royal Birkdale has been (alongside Royal Lytham) the most regular venue for the Championship other than St Andrews. Travel to the event in style and leave all the stresses to us.
