The R&A Announces Venues For 2012 Championships

2nd June 2009

The host venues for 2012's R&A Championships and International matches have been announced

The 2012 Amateur Championship will be contested at Royal Troon and Glasgow - Gailes Links with the initial stroke play stage shared between the two venues. The final match play stage will be contested solely at Royal Troon. Troon has hosted The Amateur on five previous occasions in 2003, 1978, 1968, 1956 and 1938.

The 2012 Boys Championship will be held at England's Notts Golf Club. Notts has hosted Regional Qualifying for The Open Championship on a number of occasions and was the venue for the 2007 Jacques Leglise Trophy.

The 2012 Boys Home Internationals will be staged at Ireland's County Louth Golf Club. Another past Open Championship Regional Qualifying venue, Baltray, as it is known, recently hosted the Irish Open won by the then amateur golfer, Shane Lowry.

The 2012 Seniors Open Amateur will be hosted by Wales' Machynys Peninsula Golf Club. The Jack Nicklaus-designed course is only four years old but it has already hosted the Boys Home Internationals in 2007, becoming the youngest course ever to have held an R&A event.

The 2012 St Andrews and Jacques Leglise Trophies will be contested at Ireland's Portmarnock Golf Club. Portmarnock also hosted the Boys Home Internationals in 2004, and was the venue for the 1991 Walker Cup in which former Open champion, David Duval, and current world number two, Phil Mickleson, both competed.

The 2012 Junior Open will be held at England's Fairhaven Golf Club. The course has been used as a Local Final Qualifying venue for The Open Championship. The course record is held by 1997 Open champion, Justin Leonard.
