The Open's triumphant return to St Andrews, the historic home of golf
Golf's most storied championship, The Open, is returning to the sport's spiritual home in 2022. In St Andrews, golf is an indelible part of the landscape—which makes it a fitting location for the 150th anniversary celebration. You can be there to witness the world's greatest compete for the Claret Jug with exclusive priceless experiences that include stylish accommodations and a chance to tee up on some of Scotland's historic links.
Indulge your passion for golf by immersing yourself in the tournament at the heart of its history: The Open. The landmark 150th year of the championship returns, fittingly, to St Andrews, the Scottish coastal town with golf coursing through its veins.
Champion golfers of the past like Willie Park Sr. and Old Tom Morris could never have imagined what The Open would become when they played in the inaugural championship at Prestwick in 1860, with a field of just eight players. Now, 162 years and 149 Opens later, the Home of Golf will host The 150th Open at the Old Course, St Andrews. In what is sure to be a historic Open with record crowds, the world's greatest players will descend on Fife to try to capture the Claret Jug.
Now, golf lovers worldwide have a chance to be among those crowds. You can reserve your spot in travel and event attendance experiences, which include two days of spectating at what will certainly be a sold-out Open, but that's not all. Expect sumptuous local accommodations, access to the Mastercard Club and its unique brand ambassador interviews, special dining events, and more. Last but by no means least, you'll have the chance to play a clutch of the best courses around the St Andrews golf destination, including Carnoustie, a course inextricably linked with The Open.
All guests will be guided on the ground from arrival to departure by the expert team from GolfTraveller, Scotland's premier golf-themed travel professionals with an expert knowledge of the St Andrews landscape. Their motto is "unrivalled expertise, an innate understanding of what makes a golf experience way better than just good—plus a team on the ground in St Andrews—set us apart."
