Accessibility at The Open

The Open is committed to providing a high standard of accessible facilities for all visitors and spectators.

Spectators with Disabilities

Spectators with mobility impairments are advised to telephone The Open Ticket Office (01334 460000) for details on access and car parking arrangements.

Accessible toilets will be provided in the Spectator Village and on course and the majority of catering facilities, merchandise tents and spectator experience areas will be accessible for wheelchair users.

Wheelchair information

Wheelchair friendly stands are available at the Practice Ground, 1st tee (right hand side), 14th green (left hand side) and 18th green (right hand side). Wheelchair users can be accompanied by no more than two carers.

Marshals will assist in asking spectators to allow wheelchair users to access the front of the rope line where possible.

Some areas on the golf course are unsuitable for some spectators, with rough and sloping ground which can become soft and slippery in wet conditions. However a tarmac road runs adjacent to the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th holes, with a further route alongside the 15th hole. Access from the Spectator Village to the Practice Ground is also possible on a tarmac road.
