After 162 years and 149 Open Championships, The Open returns to The Home of Golf at St Andrews for the monumental 150th anniversary.
The Open 2022 will go down as one of the most historic golfing events of this generation. It will be played on The Old Course at St Andrews, where Zach Johnson was crowned Champion of The 144th Open back in 2015.Read moreRead less
Johnson was triumphant after an intense four-hole play-off against Louis Oosthuizen and Australia’s own Marc Leishman. St Andrews has had its fair share of dramatic Open Championship finishes and boasts an illustrious list of Champions including Jack Nicklaus, Peter Thomson, John Daly, Sir Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods to name a few.
The 150th Anniversary will be fiercely contended by the world’s best golfers; who will put on a show for a chance to etch their name onto the famous Claret Jug for this momentous occasion. And you can be there, watching the final moments; the calm, the focus, the tears and the triumph.

The Old Course at St Andrews is widely considered the oldest golf course in the world and commonly referred to as The Home of Golf. The public course is located in Fife, Scotland, around an hour north of the capital, Edinburgh. Fife is home to over 20 courses, primarily links-style, but with some heathland courses. Golf was first played in the early 15th century at St Andrews. Today, St Andrews is a golfers paradise and beautifully combines the history of the sport with modern facilities.

July in Scotland is summer and the warmest month with average highs of 18C and lows of 10C. During this time, days are at their longest with an extended twilight. At this time of year, the days are 4-hours longer in the north than in London. We suggest attending The Open with layers for warmth and sun protection for the high UV index.
St Andrews, located 75 minutes northeast of Edinburgh, is a quaint seaside town known as the birthplace and home of golf, where the game was invented in the 15th century. St Andrews is also known as a university town and the University of St. Andrews, founded in 1413, sits centre, near the coastal ruins of St. Andrews Castle.

Complete a new enquiry form or get in touch with a Travel Expert to start your journey.
One of our friendly Travel Experts will contact you by email or phone to go through your travel requirements, provide recommendations if needed and prices based on what you need.
After making a booking, you will receive a deposit invoice and booking confirmation. Your deposit invoice contains payment instructions and your booking confirmation outlines the services you have booked. To secure your booking, you need to pay your deposit invoice. Once you’ve done that you’ll be all set.
If the event is still a while away, you will receive email updates with more information about your trip, including important event announcements such as finalised teams and player lists, entertainment line-ups, venue maps, event schedules and more.
Approximately 2-4 weeks before your event begins, we start sending out travel documents. Travel documents generally contain a travel documents email and a parcel. Your travel documents email outlines your booking and important information relating to your trip, while your parcel contains the physical items you require (if any). These physical items may be event tickets, ticket holders and lanyards, merchandise and other items. To be more sustainable, where possible we only send the travel documents email, so you may not receive a parcel if your tickets and other items can be sent digitally. We’ll let you know if this applies after booking.
For some events, or if you live internationally and cannot receive your parcel within the available timeframe, we will make your parcel available for collection from your hotel or an official collection centre. If this is the case, you will be advised within your travel documents email, this always comes first.
