The Renaissance Club to Host Genesis Scottish Open Until 2026
The DP World Tour has confirmed that the Genesis Scottish Open will continue to be held at The Renaissance Club until at least 2026.
This 2022 edition of the event was co-sanctioned for the first time by the DP World Tour and PGA Tour as part of a Strategic Alliance.
It has also been confirmed that South Korean luxury car brand Genesis will continue as title sponsor of the event in 2023.
The American owned Renaissance Club, founded in 2008 is nestled on 300 acres of the famous golfing coastline of the Firth of Forth.
Keith Pelley, DP World Tour Chief Executive, said: "The Renaissance Club has proved to be a wonderful home for Scotland’s national open over the past four years, and we are delighted to extend our stay in East Lothian through to 2026.
“Jerry Sarvadi and his team are dedicated to providing a world-class experience across the site, and it was against this backdrop that our Strategic Alliance with the PGA Tour came to life, with a hugely successful first co-sanctioned event, and with new title sponsor Genesis on board.
“We look forward to further celebrating our relationships with these valued partners in the coming years.”
Jerry Sarvadi, CEO, The Renaissance Club, said: “The Renaissance Club is extremely pleased to confirm our partnership with Genesis, the DP World Tour and the PGA TOUR, to host the Genesis Scottish Open for the next four years. As we continue these relationships, The Renaissance Club, along with our architect, Tom Doak and our player consultant Padraig Harrington, will strive to improve our golf course and our facilities to better the event experience for all participants, our members and their guests and general public spectators.
“The 2022 event was truly spectacular, with 14 of the top 15 in the world rankings participating and world number six, Xander Schauffele, winning with a score of 7 under par, as East Lothian received some typical Scottish westerly breezes to challenge the world’s best golfers. We would like to thank the Scottish Government and the Scottish spectators for their continued support and we are looking forward to elevating the event for all participants into the future.”
Jaehoon Chang, global head of Genesis brand, said: “Following the success of this year’s tournament, we are thrilled to continue the Genesis Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club for the next four years.
“We aspire to continually elevate the tournament in the years to come, enhancing the experience for the professional golfers, caddies, golf fans and spectators at this most prestigious event in the Home of Golf.”
