When, where is the 2018 British Open?
The 2018 British Open will take place from the July 19-22. It’s the 147th British Open held in total, but just the eighth time it will be held at Carnoustie. It remains the only golf major held outside of the United States.

The Open is hosted by a rotation of courses in the United Kingdom. The last time it was held in Carnoustie was in 2007, when Padraig Harrington won his first of two consecutive Open titles.
