We answer some of your questions on The Open
The 151st Open will be taking place at Royal Liverpool, in Hoylake on The Wirral. It is the first time it has been played there since 2014, when Rory McIlroy lifted the Claret Jug. It has hosted The Open on 12 occasions.
At this time, we only offer hospitality packages for The Open. This does not include travel or accommodation, as we feel the best way to enjoy the tournament is for you to do so on your own schedule. However, if you do need help or recommendations for travel, please contact us to ask.
At Events Hospitality, we have hospitality packages options available for all of the dates at The Open. As availability can change quickly, it is best to call us on 0208 053 0278 to book your place. That way we can also help answer any questions you have.

At Events Hospitality we only offer premium tickets and official hospitality packages. We also only sell tickets or packages that we have in hand, to ensure availability for our clients (many companies out there will sell the tickets and then attempt to procure them afterwards to fulfil the order).
We know how stressful it can be trying to work out which companies are genuine, especially when there are so many out there. As one of the newer ones, we also know how much harder we have to work to prove ourselves. That’s why we offer a 100% money back guarantee if we don’t deliver your tickets. To ensure you’re dealing with a reputable company please call us on 0208 053 0278 to ask any questions, or view more information about us here.
