You can purchase tickets for The 147th Open in 2018 online at www.theopen.com/tickets. Members of The One Club will receive priority access to tickets before tickets go on sale to the public.
Yes, there are early season prices on general admission tickets. Purchase your tickets before 31st January 2018 to benefit from the best value ticket prices.
Additionally, there are reduced prices for spectators who are between 16-24 years of age on 14th July 2018 (‘Youth Tickets’). The Open also operates a 'Kids Go Free' policy which allows children under 16 years of age on 14th July 2018 admission free of charge on all Practice and Championship days.
We would always advise that you purchase tickets for The Open via www.theopen.com/tickets as tickets sold on this site are 100% official. Unfortunately, we have experienced situations in the past where tickets purchased from other websites turn out to be fraudulent and therefore invalid, and spectators have had to purchase valid tickets on arrival to enter the course.
Tickets can be returned / refunded up to 48 hours of purchase if bought before 14th July 2018. After 48 hours have passed (or if purchased after 14th July 2018), tickets cannot be returned or refunded.
