About The R&A

Sustainability

The R&A is working to protect the enjoyment of the game and to safeguard the financial operations of golf facilities, in a manner which preserves natural environments and enhances community engagement.

Championship Golf 

Although The Open is the obvious public focal point each year of The R&A's involvement with championship golf, in reality it is only one of 11 championships and international matches which come under its administrative umbrella.
