The ticket ballot for the 150th Open Championship has opened today, giving golf fans around the world the opportunity to secure a ticket for the historic Championship.
The 150th Open, taking place from 10th to 17th July 2022 in St Andrews, is set to be a true celebration of golf and the long history of golf's original championship, as well as the many great champions who have lifted the iconic Claret Jug.
With record-breaking levels of demand anticipated for the milestone championship at the home of golf, the ballot was introduced to provide the fairest way for golf fans of all generations to obtain tickets.
The ticket ballot will run until Monday, October 4th and will give fans plenty of time to register their interest in tickets. A balance of allocations will ensure fans from near and far will be able to attend the celebrations in St. Andrews next summer.
Fans will find out the results of the ticket ballot by the end of November 2021. The ticket ballot is available exclusively to members of The One Club, the free-to-join membership programme.
Members who have already registered their interest for the ballot can now apply for tickets. Fans can still sign up at any time via www.TheOpen.com and apply for tickets.
Ticket prices for The 150th Open will be £95 for an adult on Championship Days and will range from £20 to £50 on practice days.
The R&A is fully committed to encouraging more children and young people to attend The Open and free tickets will be available to children through the successful and long-running Kids go Free programme.
