It's coming home, it's coming home, Golf is... er, coming home.
The home of golf is to host The Open golf tournament for the 29th time in its history.
St Andrews’ famous Old Course will host the 144th championship in July 2015.
The announcement comes after the last Open held at St Andrews, which South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen won in 2010, brought an estimated £40.1m to the local economy.
Peter Dawson, chief executive of the Royal and Ancient, said: “We are delighted to announce that The Open will be returning to St Andrews and the historic Old Course in 2015.
"St Andrews has proved time and again that it is perfectly equipped to host The Open and I am certain we will yet again see a worthy winner lift the claret jug.
"Players, spectators and officials alike will welcome a return to the game’s spiritual home and I fully expect that we will witness another thrilling championship."
Euan Loudon, chief executive of St Andrews Links Trust, added: "We are very much looking forward to welcoming The Open championship back to the links.
"There is always a special sense of anticipation when The Open is played on the Old Course and it promises to be no different in 2015.
"Almost every great champion in the game has played here and there is no more fitting celebration of the rich heritage of the home of golf than hosting golf’s oldest major championship."
