Special ‘Youth ticket’ offer for Senior Open golf championship

15 June 2017

An exciting new ticket initiative has made golf become more affordable to young fans wanting to attend this summer’s Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex at Royal Porthcawl.

A ‘Youth Ticket’ is available which means that 17 to 24 year-olds attending the Senior Open will pay only £16 to watch the legends in action. Young people can take advantage of the reduced admission price in advance and on the gate.

Already, everyone under the age of 16 who is accompanied by an adult will be admitted free of charge for the biggest golfing event of the year in Wales from July 27-30.

Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director – Championships at The R&A said: “We are aware of the financial challenges that young people can experience and we are committed to ensuring that our championships, including the Senior Open, are accessible and affordable for all.

“The availability of the Youth ticket has proven to be a great success at The Open, providing excellent value for money to spectators. We hope that this will extend to the Senior Open when it is introduced for the Championship being staged at Royal Porthcawl in South Wales this summer.”

A world-class line-up of senior golfing legends will assemble at Royal Porthcawl, with former Ryder Cup captains such as Bernhard Langer and Colin Montgomerie being joined by a host of Major winners from the past 40 years, including Tom Watson, Ian Woosnam, John Daly, José Maria Olazábal and Fred Couples. England’s Paul Broadhurst will defend his title.

Councillor Huw David, the Leader of Bridgend County Borough, said: “In 2014, we were extremely proud that the first major golf tournament ever to be played in Wales was hosted right here in Bridgend County Borough, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to our corner of the golfing world again this summer.

“Three years ago, players praised the excellent conditions at the course, and bumper crowds enjoyed four days of entertaining links golf. More than 43,000 spectators lined the fairways and local volunteers, residents and businesses really got behind the championship.

“Hosting such a prestigious event is fantastic for local tourism, with the international media coverage showcasing Porthcawl to a global audience. We’re excited about this year’s championship and are sure that local people will show fantastic support for it once again.”

Tickets, including the new Youth offer, are on sale now and hospitality packages are also available. Under-16s are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. For tickets and more information, visit www.senioropenchampionship.com or call +44 (0) 800 023 2557.
