Tickets for the 2009 Open Championship at Turnberry may well be hot property, but with Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington due to play their first competitive rounds on the famed Ayrshire links, tickets for the pratice rounds this year promise to be quite special.

“Players will be looking to get the most out of their practice rounds and spectators will get great value from a day out at The Open on days when ticket prices are at their lowest,” said
R&A Director of Championships, David Hill.

“Many golf fans will come to The Open on all four championship days but for families and seniors looking for a day out at one of the world’s greatest sports events, the best opportunity to get close to the action is on one of the official practice days.”

Adult practice day tickets purchased at the pay gates are £25 on Monday 13 July and £30 on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 July. Seniors (over 65 years) are £15 on Monday 13 July and £25 on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15

July.

Children and grandchildren under 16 years are admitted free with an adult or senior. Car parking charges are £5 on Monday 13 July and £10 on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 July.
