Open 2015: R&A slashes food & drink prices

Food and drink at the 2015 Open will be subsidised by the R&A, leading to a significant reduction in prices.

Golf’s governing body are spending £150,000 to subsidise catering at St Andrews, following criticism of prices in recent years.

“This is something we’ve been looking at for a while,” Mike Wells, the Open Championship’s director of staging, told the Scotsman.

Two years ago, the Open suffered a significant fall in attendance when staged at Muirfield.

This year, the “Home of Golf” will boast the largest arena in the history of golf’s oldest major.

Selection of prices:

Fish and Chips: £8.50 (£2 reduction)
Bottle of water: £1.50 (£2 reduction)
Pint of beer: £4.80 (remains the same)
