We can supply your bespoke package to the event that includes:

  • Ground transport – self drive packages or with your own driver
  • Accommodation – We have a selection of 3,4 and 5 star hotels available in St Andrews and further away. Note : the closer you are to the event the higher the hotel prices. Being prepared to travel 30-60 minutes will give you more choice and much better value.
  • Golf – we will have prebooked tee times at Carnoustie, Kingsbarns, Fairmont St Andrews, and we can add in many other great courses to your tour
  • Hospitality – If you wish to enjoy a full hospitality experience at The Open we can also supply that.
Tickets - Please be aware none of our packages include tickets to the event. You should obtain them direct from The R&A - The One Club.

The R&A changed their ticket policy in 2018 and removed the “pay at the gate” option. The process now to obtain your tickets is to register with The One Club; a free service provided by the R&A to supply ticket to the spectators direct.

By registering, you will get emails from them telling you when you can buy your tickets. The 2021 tickets will be acquired via a ballot process. The process is available between 1 July and 4 October 2021 . You will hear from the R&A in October if you have been successful. Tickets are currently limited to 4 people per order.

Register now at The One Club.

Quick Quote

the open..

has been returning to St Andrews every 5 years since 1995, but the R&A have moved the next time it’s there to 2022 to coincide with The Open’s 150th anniversary. This was scheduled to be held in 2021 but was delayed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This is going to be a big historic occasion… so its going to be the one to go to.

Scotland Tours clients have been enjoying attending The Open since we started in business back in 1997 and St Andrews always draws bigger crowds than the other venues.

What Would Be Your Preferred Package?
  • We arrange many trips for small groups of 4 or more right up to larger groups of 40+ where they wish to attend the event on just one or two days and tour round Scotland playing other courses
  • Some clients wish to attend the event for all 4 championship days – buy a season ticket for best value.
  • Others prefer to stay away and enjoy other areas of Scotland, and just attend the event on one day only.
  • Group tours. For groups of 8 or more we would plan the whole trip, play some great courses, and attend The Open for 1,2 or 3 days and create the total package that suits you and your group.

We can offer you: Hotels….guesthouses…. self-catering apartments & houses… covering all styles and budgets.

Be aware that the closer you are to the course the more expensive it is. You and your group should consider if you are willing to travel each day and decide on an appropriate distance – up to 5 miles, 5 – 10 miles, 10 – 25 miles, more than 25 miles.


If you are travelling with a larger group then the general advise is to start planning early. Some accommodations books up years in advance so planning your trip 2 or 3 years in advance is often a good plan if you are in a group larger than 4 persons.

We also offer monthly payment facilities so you can spread the cost of the trip over a longer period of time as well, and gain some savings as well by making payments when the exchange rates are in your favour.
