The 149th Open


Championship Friday now sold out

Beauty shot of Royal Portrush

With the 2020 golf season almost upon us, we are delighted to say that all ticket options for Friday at The 149th Open have now sold out as demand to be in Sandwich for golf’s original Major continues.

Tickets remain available for Championship Thursday and there are limited places in our Hospitality Experiences for Thursday and Saturday where the world’s best golfers will be battling it out to become the next Champion Golfer of the Year this summer.

Excitement for the return of the Claret Jug to the South East of England has been such that Weekly, Weekend, Championship Friday, Saturday and Sunday tickets have now sold out.

The Open takes place at the famous links of Royal St George’s, Kent for the 15th time from 12-19 July.

Northern Ireland’s Darren Clarke sealed his maiden major title the last time The Open visited St George’s in 2011, fulfilling a childhood ambition to triumph on his 20th appearance.

Founded in 1887 by Dr William Laidlaw Purves to be a rival to St Andrews in the south of England, Royal St George’s has previously hosted the fight for the Claret Jug on 14 occasions.

Not only that, it became the first venue outside of Scotland to hold The Open when John Henry Taylor was crowned Champion Golfer of the Year in 1894 on the Kent coastline.

More than half a century has passed since an Englishman was last crowned Champion Golfer on English soil, with Tony Jacklin holding the honour after his win at Royal Lytham & St Annes.

Tommy Fleetwood will be among the home golfers looking to end that unwanted streak next year, although they face stiff competition from the likes of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka.

So with all the components in place for another memorable week of golf at Royal St George’s, make sure you don’t miss out on the drama of The 149th Open and book your tickets or hospitality experiences now.
