Golfbreaks have been an Authorised Provider of The Open since 2017, meaning we work directly with The R&A to provide you with the best tournament packages available. With tickets for The Open extremely sought after, booking through Golfbreaks provides many advantages. Check out the five top reasons why you should attend The Open with Golfbreaks.

1. Guaranteed tickets

As an Authorised Provider of The Open, Golfbreaks guarantee your tickets as part of your package, so once your booking is confirmed, your tickets are secured. This means no ballots, no online queuing, just guaranteed tickets for The Open.

Previously, tickets to The Open Championship were easy to come-by and even available to purchase on the day at the entrance of the tournament. However, since 2019 at Royal Portrush, The Open has sold out far in advance, and so a ballot has been introduced to give everyone the opportunity to apply for tickets.

Although the ballot has made things fairer for the majority to be in with a chance to apply for tickets, the process can sometimes be frustrating and disappointing if not successful. By booking with Golfbreaks, you do not have to go through this process, giving you the peace of mind knowing you’ll be attending the tournament the second you’ve booked. So why take the chance to see if you gain tickets in the ballot, when you can simply secure both your tickets and accommodation in one simple booking?

2. Experienced Tournaments Team

Our experienced Tournaments Team will guide you through every step of your tournament experience. Whether this is a gift for a loved one, your first golf tournament, or your hundredth, we can talk you through every detail of what to expect from your tournament package with Golfbreaks.

During your trip to The Open, our Tournaments Team will be on-site throughout, assisting you with hotel check-in, tournament transfers, and tickets, so all you will have to think about is how to spend your day inside the grounds.

The Golfbreaks Tournaments Team have years of knowledge and experience in golf tournaments across the world, so can share the best tips and tricks on how to enjoy your tournament experience to the fullest. Before travel, you will receive a comprehensive travel guide put together by our team to get you ready for your trip to The Open.

3. Tournament transport included

With records numbers attending The Open each day, organising your own transport to the tournament can be unwanted stress – which is why we do it for you. As part of your package to The Open with Golfbreaks, transport to and from the tournament will be organised for you. Your tournament package will include either coach transfers or train tickets for days attending The Open, so you don't have to worry about how you're getting there, just who to what to do first once you arrive!

4. Enhance your tournament experience

At Golfbreaks we want to make sure that your tournament booking is bespoke to you, which is why we provide a tailor-made service to create the ultimate package that suits all your wants and needs for your next trip to The Open. We have a variety of options to enhance your tournament package with Golfbreaks. We can add hospitality, airport transfers, rounds of golf at nearby courses, and you can even extend your stay to explore the area. Make sure you speak to your Golf Travel Expert upon booking to add these extras as availability can be extremely limited.

5. ABTOT covered

As a company, we look to promote responsible tourism and hassle-free golf travel experiences with our four core values – choice, value, service and loyalty.

Being a member of ABTOT means that we adhere to the ABTOT Code of Conduct, which governs areas such as accurate advertising, fair terms of trading, changes to bookings and managing customer complaints, ensuring you can book your next tournament experience with complete confidence.
