How to Play The British Open on a Golf Simulator

No need to travel to England! Play the British Open on a golf simulator at home. With GSPro golf simulator software you can play Royal Troon Golf Club.

Did you know that The Open Championship (also known as the "British Open" or just "The Open") has been contested for more than 150 years? Ever wonder what golf looked like 150 years ago? Nothing like it does today, especially the way Carl's Place knows golf!

Anyways, Royal Troon Golf Club in Troon, Scotland, UK, will host the 152nd Open Championship from July 18-21, 2024. 

Most of us will never get the chance to play Royal Troon like the pros will this year. At least the real-life version. However, with a golf simulator, you can play the virtual Royal Troon and feel like you're right there competing for the Claret Jug.

I mean, who wouldn't wanna have a drink or four out of your own "Claret Jug" after winning The Open in the comfort of your own home?
