The Scottish Open will be held in the Highlands for a second year despite concerns over the championship's future.
Doubts arose whether the tournament could retain its position in the season calendar after the withdrawal of principal sponsor Barclays.
The championship was played at the new venue of Castle Stuart Golf Links near Inverness this year.
Torrential rain delayed play during the tournament in July with golfers playing three rounds instead of four when they were eventually able to get back onto the course.
Officials have confirmed that the Scottish Open 2012 will be held in the Highlands for the second year, retaining its place the week before the Open Championship.
This year's championship was the first time the golf championship had visited the northern region since it was moved from Loch Lomond where it had played for the past 15 years.
The European Tour however has confirmed the Scottish Open will go ahead as usual the week before the Open Championship, and that the £3m prize pot will remain the same.
Next year’s Scottish Open will take place from July 12 to 15, 2012.
