Your last point is the best kept secret of going to the British Isles to play links golf. There are many reasons for courses to be selected to host the major events that you mentioned. Most of those reasons have nothing to do with the quality of the golf course itself but rather the logistics of doing so. If you are not near-scratch and playing from the tips of 7,000+ yard courses on a regular basis, you will not be able to discern the difference between, say, Muirfield and either Gullane No. 1 or North Berwick West, or Troon and either Western Gailes or Glasgow Gailes.
