The Glasgow Open was a European Tour golf tournament which was played annually at Haggs Castle Golf Club in Glasgow from 1983 to 1985. The most distinguished of the three winners was future World Number 1 Bernhard Langer of Germany. In 1985 the prize fund was £90,348, which was slightly below average for a European Tour event at that time.
