The Scottish Open will be held at Castle Stuart near Inverness this year - a change in direction for the tournament, which has been held at Loch Lomond, just outside Glasgow, since 1995.
Castle Stuart is a new course, which only opened last year, and the course's chief executive officer, George O'Grady, has already described it as an excellent location for the prestigious tournament.
O'Grady told the BBC: "It is always exciting to break new ground and everyone at the Tour is delighted to be staging one of our most prestigious events at a new venue which has been so widely acclaimed."
Meanwhile, pro golfer Padraig Harrington told the news provider he was looking forward to playing on the new course.
"Castle Stuart is reputed to be a fine addition to Scotland's links courses," he said.
Last year, Edoardo Molinari won the 2010 Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond Golf Club.
