In partnership with VisitScotland, Scottish Golf are giving golfers across Scotland the opportunity to win tickets to one of the summer’s biggest global sporting events, The 150th Open at St Andrews.
The Open will be returning to Scotland for the first time since it was held at Carnoustie in 2018 and 290,000 spectators are expected to walk the famous links over the course of the tournament week.
Scotland is known world-wide as ‘the Home of Golf’ and this summer sees five world-class golf events taking place in the space of just five weeks. As well as The 150th Open, Scotland will also host The Genesis Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club, The Senior Open at Gleneagles, the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open at Dundonald Links and The AIG Women’s Open at Muirfield.
After a period when events across the world were impacted by restrictions in 2020 and 2021, Scotland will return to the centre of the international golfing stage next month.
2022 is also a welcome return to full capacity crowds for The Open with the event being cancelled in 2020, and then having restricted spectator numbers in 2021. The 150th Open is a momentous occasion for the event and a fitting way to mark this return.
Tickets for The 150th Open are sold out following huge demand through the ballot process, with more than 1.3 million people applying for tickets. However, for golfers across Scotland who haven’t managed to get their hands on a ticket yet, VisitScotland and Scottish Golf are providing a fantastic opportunity to do so.
In order to enter the competition, all golfers need to do is log in to the Scottish Golf App, select the Programs icon, select the National tab, and click their preferred date to enter the draw. Clicking ‘Buy’ enters them in the draw for that selected date (there is no charge). Two tickets will be issued per winner.
Karin Sharp, Chief Operating Officer at Scottish Golf, said, ‘Everyone in Scotland is excited to see The Open returning to the Home of Golf for the first time since 2018. This year’s event is obviously extra special with it being the 150th staging of the tournament and being hosted at the Old Course in St Andrews.
‘We would like to thank VisitScotland for the opportunity to provide golfers across Scotland with the chance to win their way into this world class event.
‘After a challenging couple of years through Covid, it is fantastic to see Scotland front and centre of the international golfing stage again, and to welcome golfers and spectators from around the world to see what we have to offer.’
