Individuals could apply for up to a maximum of 4 tickets per day of the Championship.
This upper limit included all types of tickets (Adult, Youth, Junior ‘Kids Go Free’ and Carer tickets) and there were no weekly/weekend tickets available for purchase.
Ballot applicants needed to be at least 16 years of age on the date of application.
Please note that any attendees under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult at The Open.
Yes. There is a maximum number of fans who can attend The Open on each day.
This number changes at each venue, due to a variety of factors such as space around the golf course, health & safety, transport/travel networks, availability of accommodation and other factors that would impact the overall spectator experience.
You can find full details of our ticket prices here.
Tickets for fans under the age of 16 are free of charge, but will only be allocated via the Ticket Ballot.
We will not be able to add additional Junior ‘Kids Go Free’ tickets to applications or orders following the conclusion of the ballot process.
As with previous Open Championships, there will be thousands of unreserved grandstand seats around the course that are free of charge, and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. It will not be possible for ticket holders to pay to reserve a grandstand seat at The 152nd Open.
However, some of The Open’s official hospitality experiences include a reserved grandstand seat – for information about these products, please email Hospitality@TheOpen.com.
