  1. Hi!

    I joined the ticket ballot and got tickets for Tuesdays practice. So we booked the flight and found a hotel in Southport.

    Also booked Hesketh, West Lancs, Formby and Hillside. Should be a great week with a lot of golf and a few pints.

    Anyone else going to the open week?

    I have tickets for the final day for the family. It’ll be their first Open visit. We got an Airbnb in Liverpool for the Sat night so really looking forward to it.
  3. Hi !
    Yes, I'm in.... I've got a ticket in the ballot for the Friday.
    I'm local, so my club will probably be Marshalling at Hoylake but I couldn't wait for those arrangements to be finalised before I tried to get a ticket... Too easy to miss out. (Is that true FOMO?)

    Have to say, it's a high-class selection of courses you've booked.
    They are all memorably different despite being within a few local line train stations of each other.
    You will have to let us know how you get on and what you think of the courses.

  7. We will be playing Hesketh late afternoon the day we arrive in Southport. Tried to get tee times at both Birkdale and Lytham but they were both fully booked. But maybe we can squeeze in a late twilight round in at S&A

    Unfortunately not going this year, but feel free to upload your photos on the forum. Have a great time
  9. I’d ditch Hesketh and see if can get Royal Birkdale or Southport and Ainsdale instead.

    No tickets in the draw this year or last year. I remember paying on the gate at Open championships and most golf tournaments on the European tour in the past. They are trying to be like the masters now with these ballots.

    Time was you could rock up to a football match and pay at the gate.
    These days, you need a ticket and to have booked ages in advance.

    Seems golf is going the same way. You need to be able to project your health and well-being a year in advance and as a consequence, become the recipient of a continuous stream of advertising pressure.
