Experience golf's oldest major
The Open has been home to over 150 years of drama, suspense and excitement as the world's best golfers go head-to-head in the oldest and most iconic championship. Starting in 1860, at the prestigious Prestwick golf course, eight professional golfers competed against one another to determine who would succeed the Scottish Legend Allan Robertson and be crowned as the Champion Golfer.
The winner was awarded the Challenge Belt, which was worth £25 at the time. It wasn't until 1873 that the Claret Jug was presented for the first time. The original Claret Jug is now on permanent display in the clubhouse at The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews.

"The Open trip topped all my expectations, and we had an absolutely GREAT week. It’s quite special when you have all the world-class pros walking by so close. On the final day we managed to get a couple of seats on the main grandstand just left of the 18th green. Goosebumps…."
