R&A launch 'Railway Club at

17th Tee' package for Open


Tickets for the 150th Anniversary Open Championship at St Andrews should be purchased before Monday, December 14 to ensure that they are delivered to UK addresses in time for Christmas.
With Greenside Club tickets sold out, buyers can now take advantage of the newly-released ‘Railway Club at the 17th Tee’ ticket. It gives a full week’s access to a reserved stand by the new 17th tee, which also overlooks the 16th and second green. Railway Club Ticket holders will also receive access to the Railway Club Marquee, in which they can enjoy complimentary tea, coffee and newspapers, and a range of other catering to purchase.
An Official Programme and daily draw-sheet, plus a week’s car-park pass and entry to both The R&A Club Marquee and Links Restaurant will also be included.
“Railway Club tickets and the Railway Stand are a new initiative for 2010 and would make a great present,” explained The R&A’s Director of Championships, David Hill. “The stand will give spectators fantastic views as players drive from the new 17th tee over the famous railway sheds, while the dedicated marquee, situated less than 150 yards away, will allow ticket holders to relax in comfort and style.”
Those who don’t want to miss a shot on the Old Course can also purchase Season tickets for all eight days of the Championship at the heavily discounted price of £200, if purchased before January 31, 2010.
A number of special events have been planned to commemorate the 150th anniversary of The Open Championship, including The Open Champions’ Challenge on the Wednesday evening before the Championship gets underway.
A daily ticket on the four Championship days (July 15-28, 2010) costs £60. Under-16’s will continue to be admitted free of charge and concessions are available.
Ticket enquiries should be directed through or +44 (0) 1334 460010.

+The Open championship will be played over the Old Course, St Andrews from July 15 to 18, 2010.
