ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — Organizers say the 2015 British Open will be held at the Old Course at St. Andrews.

The event has been staged at the famous Scottish venue known as the “Home of Golf” every five years since 1990.

Peter Dawson, chief executive of tournament organizer Royal & Ancient, says “St. Andrews has proved time and again that it is perfectly equipped to host The Open and I am certain we will yet again see a worthy winner lift the claret jug.”

St. Andrews has hosted the British Open 28 times, most recently in 2010 when Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa won by seven shots.
