Major championship venues: Future sites for the AIG Women's Open Championship

Here's where the R&A's flagship event for the best women golfers will be held in the coming years.
Few rounds in Scotland are as coveted as exclusive Muirfield in East Lothian.

The 2021 AIG Women's Open Championship at Carnoustie Golf Links featured one of the most crowded late-Sunday leaderboards in recent major championship history. At one point, six players shared the lead during the final round. In the end, Sweden's Anna Nordqvist secured her third career major championship victory, holding off Georgia Hall, Lizette Salas and Madelene Sagstrom by a single shot.

The AIG Women's Open Championship has been at the forefront of increased efforts throughout professional golf to make big-time tournament purses more equitable between the highest levels of both the men's and women's games. The 2021 championship awarded $5.8 million in prize money, with Nordqvist taking home $870,000 for the win. From 2022 forward, presenting sponsor AIG and The R&A plan for the purse to be at least $6.8 million. A coalescing rota of prestigious host venues to rival that of The Open Championship will also help raise the prestige of this great event.

Here are the future host golf courses for the AIG Women's Open Championship through the year 2025:
