Organizers say Royal Aberdeen Golf Club in Balgownie will become the eighth different venue to host the tournament that many players use as a warm-up for the British Open, the year's third major.

George O'Grady, chief executive of the European Tour, says it's ''a classic and challenging links course, which will continue in the tradition of great Scottish Open venues.''

Castle Stuart replaced Loch Lomond as the venue of the Scottish Open from 2011 and will have a 20 percent increase in prize money - up to 3 million pounds ($4.85 million) - for its final year as host.
