The 2019 Open will take place at the County Antrim venue between 14-21 July and there has been a huge surge in interest, with the R&A reporting an unprecedented demand for tickets.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday ticket packages have now sold out, making the 148th Open the fastest-selling in the history of the championship, with close to 200,000 spectators expected to attend over the course of the week.

The Open returns to Royal Portrush for the first time since 1951 and due to the strong demand, organisers have made it an all-ticket event for the first time.

“Currently, the only tickets that remain for the 148th Open at Royal Portrush are general admission tickets for Thursday 18 July and each of the four practice days between Sunday 14 July and Wednesday 17 July,” the R&A said.
