The Genesis Scottish Open is a golf tournament that has gained more prestige over time.
The tournament is considered a good preparation for the British Open, which takes place shortly after.
The event takes place at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland, a course developed by two American brothers in 2007.
The course is designed like a traditional links course, with few trees and challenging weather conditions.
The firm fairways can either help or penalize well-struck shots, depending on the bounce.
he course features golden fescue grass, undulating greens, and deep bunkers.
The location of The Renaissance Club is highly respected in the golf community, neighboring Muirfield and the birthplace of the sport in 1832.
The course was originally designed by Tom Doak, who aimed to create a challenging yet strategic layout for professional players.
Padraig Harrington, a former Ryder Cup captain and major champion, provides insight on the course from a player's perspective.
The tournament organizers expect a high attendance, with over 70,000 spectators, and the participation of many top-ranked players in the world.
