The tournament, scheduled for August 2-5, is one of the LPGA Tour's four major championships. This will mark the first time a women's professional tournament will be staged at the Old Course.
"We applaud the Ladies Golf Union, Weetabix and St. Andrews Links Trust for bringing the 2007 Weetabix Women's British Open to the Old Course at St. Andrews," said Ty Votaw, the LPGA Commissioner. "This is another signal of the continued growth and advancement of women's professional golf."
The Old Course, considered to be the "Home of Golf," hosted the British Open on the PGA Tour a record 26 times, most recently in 2000 when Tiger Woods completed the career Grand Slam.
Royal Birkdale gets the nod in 2005, while Royal Lytham & St. Annes returns to duty in 2006.
