Alfred Dunhill Links Championship cancelled for 2020

The European Tour has confirmed that this year's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It had been due to be played at Saint Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns in October.

"This is a real disappointment for ourselves and for all golf lovers, especially those that appreciate links golf," tournament organisers confirmed in a statement this afternoon.

"Alfred Dunhill has been supporting golf at the Home of Golf and in Scotland for 35 years, initially with the Alfred Dunhill Cup and for the past 19 years with the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

"We commend the Scottish Government in their resolute response to the pandemic. We do not wish to undermine their efforts or cause any undue risk to the communities that normally host us.

"Given the international nature of the event and in particular our large amateur field we felt that this was the prudent decision to take.

"The size and complexity of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, played over three courses with 168 professionals and 168 amateurs, makes it very difficult to stage safely within the current guidelines given the uncertainties we are all facing.

"Regrettably, therefore, we have decided to postpone the 20th Alfred Dunhill Links Championship to 2021, but very much look forward to returning next year."

They added that the event will be part of next season's European Tour schedule and will be played in early October of 2021.
