Premier Golf granted AUTHORIZED TICKET PROVIDER status for The Open Championship, 2020 and 2021 by the R & A.
Atlanta, Georgia—Premier Golf is an authorized ticket provider for The Open in 2020 and 2021. In 2020, Royal St George’s in Kent, England is the host course. In 2021, The Open celebrates its 150th year at the Old Course in St Andrews, Scotland.
Propelled by the exciting and highly successful 2019 Open at Royal Portrush in Ireland and the phenomenal upcoming venues, tickets are selling at a rapid pace, according to the R & A. As of July 16, Weekend and Weekly Bundles are already sold out for 2020.
Daily tickets are selling quickly as fans want to secure their spot at the Open at Royal St George’s, which is only 90 minutes from London.
“We’re currently pulling our lodging packages together,” says Ann Mabry, Premier Golf’s managing director. “With a solid block of tickets secured, there will be some fantastic packages with outstanding hotels. We’ll be offering golf, non-golf activities and some surprises soon to be released.”
It’s the first time in nearly a decade that the south of England will host The Open.
“The appeal of Royal St George’s, which will stage The Open for the 15th time, and the proximity to London, and all of its fabulous restaurants, world renowned shopping and spectacular sightseeing, will make the 2020 Open truly special,” Mabry says.
Long regarded as one of England’s best links courses, the 7,204-yard, par 70 Royal St George’s has a non-contrived, natural look and feel with wildflowers, dune grasses and views over Pegwell Bay. It first hosted The Open in 1894. The 149th Open will be played July 16 to July 19, 2020.
In 2021, the most iconic course in the world, the 7,270-yard, par 72 Old Course at St Andrews, will host The Open for the 30th time from July 15th to the 18th. It’s known as the “home of golf” because the sport was first played there in the early 15th century. Some of the greatest golfers ever like Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have hoisted the Claret Jug at the Old Course at St Andrews.
The prestigious R & A (Royal and Ancient Golf Club), based in St Andrews, is the ruling authority of golf throughout the world except North America.
