Next year's Open is set to be one of the most eagerly anticipated weeks in the championship's history, with the tournament returning to Royal Portrush and Northern Ireland for the first time in 67 years.

That's because all tickets for the tournament days are now completely sold out in what is the first ever ticket-only Open Championship.

The R&A say that sales have "surpassed all expectations."

The only tickets currently available are for the four practice days - Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Prices for those practice days start at £15 for adults, £10 for 16-24 year olds and under 16s are free with a paying adult.

Priority for those on the waiting list goes to members of The One Club which is free to sign up to.

Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director – Championships at The R&A, said, “It is clear from the record-breaking ticket sales that golf fans are looking forward to the long-awaited return of The Open to Northern Ireland. We knew there would be great demand but it has been even higher than we expected and we expect fans will take advantage of the remaining practice day tickets now that we have sold out on Championship days.

“The 148th Open is set to be a truly historic and memorable occasion and we are encouraging fans to act quickly to avoid disappointment by securing their place at Royal Portrush through visiting or one of our official ticket providers.”
