Course work as Royal Portrush prepares for The Open

Royal Portrush is undergoing major changes - including the building of two new holes - as it prepares to host The Open Championship.

Portrush is back on the R&A's rota for the tournament, having staged it once before in 1951, and the most likely year for its return is believed to be 2019.

The major renovation may be costing several million pounds but it is believed the benefit of hosting The Open will be worth over £70m to Northern Ireland.
