Ticket FAQs

150th Open Ticketholders

When will I receive my ticket(s)?
Tickets for The 150th Open will be dispatched via a digital ticketing app. We will notify you when tickets have been dispatched and include information on how to access them. We would expect this to be around 4-6 weeks prior to the Championship. You should ensure that you keep your email address and mobile number up to date on your My Account on TheOpen.com.
I would like to transfer one or more of my tickets to a guest. What do I need to know?
The tickets are fully transferrable and can be sent digitally to friends and family. The digital tickets will be available approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the event and can be transferred via an app, allowing individuals to hold and display their own tickets. The name of the ticket purchaser will be displayed on the ticket, but this will not restrict use of the ticket and it is not necessary for the original ticket purchaser to be in attendance at the event. The only instance in which ID might be necessary under normal circumstances is to confirm the age of an attendee using a Youth or Junior ticket, or if the ticket cannot be displayed digitally. More information about the digital ticketing provisions will be communicated to fans closer to the event.
How do I purchase parking?

If you were unsuccessful or partly successful in the Ticket Ballot, please be aware that any tickets purchased from the Resale Platform are non-refundable.
