A ticket ballot for the 151st Open Golf Championship in Hoylake in 2023 will open later this month.

The event is returning to the Royal Liverpool Golf Course next July, having been delayed for a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It will be the 13th time the Championship has been staged at Royal Liverpool, and the first since Rory McIlroy lifted the Claret Jug in 2014.

People wanting to take part in the ballot have to sign up to The One Club, The Open’s free-to-join membership programme.

The ballot will take place from Tuesday 21 June to Wednesday 20 July, with fans finding out if they have been successful in August and September.

The cost of a day ticket ranges from £25 – £110 for adults and £12.50 – £55 for 16-24 year-olds. There is no charge for children aged under 16.

The organisers of the Open Golf Championship said: “We want to make sure that the make-up of golf fans at The 151st Open is diverse, and so for that reason, we will make sure that we have a mix of local fans as well as fans from the rest of the UK and abroad.

“We are also committed to inspiring the next generation of golf fans and we will therefore allocate a significant proportion of tickets to Juniors (Under 16s) and Youths (16-24s).

“And so once the Ticket Ballot closes on Wednesday 20 July, we will review all applications and email applicants throughout August and September informing them of whether their Ticket Ballot entry has been successful.”
