The ticket ballot for The 150th Open has opened today, with the major set to be played at St Andrew's next July.
The home of golf will stage the game's oldest major between July 10th and 17th, 2022 and there's a record-breaking demand for tickets.
Organisers, the R&A, have opted to open a registration window for fans to apply for tickets until October the 4th, with successful applicants to be offered the chance to purchase tickets in the November.
The ticket ballot is available exclusively to members of The One Club, the R&A’s free-to-join membership programme.
“We are looking forward to a very special occasion in golf next year with The 150th Open being played at the birthplace of the game in St Andrews," said R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers.
"We will be celebrating one of the most prestigious and renowned events in the sporting calendar and will be welcoming some of its greatest champions past and present.
“The ticket ballot gives as many fans as possible the chance to be part of this fantastic Championship and make it an occasion to remember.”
Ticket prices for The 150th Open will be £95 for an adult on championship days and will range from £20 to £50 on practice days. Weekly tickets won't be available for St Andrew's next year and the ballot can be accessed at www.theopen.com
