Walters Golf takes golfers into the soul of the 2013 British Open at Royal Links Golf Club in Las Vegas

The golf world is abuzz in anticipation of the 2013 British Open, which is to be held at Scotland's famous private club, Muirfield on July 18-21. Muirfield's history officially dates back to March 7, 1744, when the club was established as the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers. It was the first to establish rules of play and a highly formalized club atmosphere, similar to that of many clubs today. In short, its historical significance is unparalleled.

For many golfers, these courses, and several others on the rotation, represent the most prestigious of golf rounds they can aspire to test their skills against. The names are legendary in the game and the history is incomparable. However, for those who can't or don't want to go all the way to Scotland for such an experience, Walters Golf offers an alternative: Royal Links Golf Club. This course is located just minutes from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, and faithfully recreates the best holes of the British Open rotation, including: Muirfield, The Old Course at St. Andrews, Prestwick, Royal Troon and many more. For anyone who loves the game and craves to experience this year's host course, Royal Links serves up Muirfield's hole #5 on their hole #9 and promises to provide golfers with some unforgettable memories.

"Royal Links is really a unique golfing experience for any player, whether you're a novice or a seasoned pro," said Corporate Vice President of Marketing, Josh Hill.
