How to Play a Round of Golf at Royal Portrush, Home of The 148th Open

By Evan Chronis January 14, 2019

If you've ever wanted to play a round of golf on a famous course right after the best players in the game finish up, now is your chance. 

The Royal Portrush Golf Club has always been an iconic golfing venue, but it will be thrust back into the limelight when The Open 2019 is hosted at the Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush. This will be a truly historic event, as The Open Championship hasn't been played at Royal Portrush, or in Northern Ireland at all, since 1951

With Royal Portrush taking the stage this summer for The Open 2019, the desire to tee off at the course yourself has increased tenfold. Whether it's the history or the sheer difficulty of the course, true fans of the sport will want to test one of the most challenging 18 holes in the world. 

The Open Championship

Here's how you can get a tee time at at the Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush:

The Open Experience Ticket Packages

The Open Experiences goes above and beyond to give you an unforgettable experience at The 148th Open. With an Official Experience Package, you can join the action at Royal Portrush with a Single Day package, or The Ultimate Open Experience package. Both options come with exclusive insider experiences during the tournament, as well as access into our luxury hospitality location. 

But an Experience Package from The Open Experiences also offers you the once-in-a-lifetime experience of playing the Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush the DAY after The Open 2019 ends. That's right — if you purchase two or more single-day packages or a full week package from The Open Experiences, you can schedule a tee time at Royal Portrush for Monday, July 22. 

Whether you want to test your score against some of your favorite golfers or just want to feel the adrenaline left over from the competition for the Claret Jug, this is one of the best experiences you can get in the sport. 

What's the Benefit of Ticket Packages to The Open?

The word "exclusive" is thrown out a lot, but we really do mean it when we say that this is exclusive access. For one, this is the first time that Royal Portrush will be playable during summer this year. The course will be closed from June through mid-July to complete preparation for The 148th Open, meaning that you can be the first person (outside of the actual tournament) to play the course in the summer season. 

The course opens back up to the public on July 25, but it also opens back up to its highest price point of the calendar year and will likely attract a lot of other fanfare that opening weekend. Getting a tee time right after the conclusion of The Open Championship guarantees you private access to the course since it still technically isn't open yet.
