Hospitality experiences for The 149th Open at Royal St George’s are now on general sale to fans who want to enjoy golf’s original championship from the luxurious surroundings of official hospitality.

Origins Hospitality was launched last year and fans looking to book their place at the famous Kent links next year can now access an interactive virtual tour by visiting to experience firsthand the world-class facilities on offer via The Open’s official hospitality.

Many fans who had booked places for The 149th Open this year have made the decision to transfer over their bookings to 2021 following the cancellation of the Championship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are pleased that many of our customers have opted to transfer their bookings to 2021 following cancellation of The Open this year, demonstrating the demand among fans to be part of the world’s greatest sporting events.

“We would urge anyone interested in attending Royal St George’s next July to ensure that they purchase the remaining packages from or our official partners in good time.”

Origins Hospitality at The Open offers four packages for fans: Champions, Engravers, Caddies and Scorers. Their roles are central to the heritage and rich tradition of the Championship and all of the unique experiences deliver a world class experience for guests in keeping with the global stature of The Open.

Proceeds from The Open will be used to fund The R&A’s activities in golf development, governance of the sport and staging of world class amateur events as part of its commitment to invest £200m over the next ten years to grow and develop the sport around the world.
