Attend the 2021 Open at St Andrews
Despite being two years away, anticipation is already rising for the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews in 2021. Every Open is special and a piece of history, but this anniversary edition of the game's original major at the Home of Golf is an unmissable event for any golf fan, with Golfbreaks.com unveiling a series of attractive packages to ensure that you can experience the dramatic setting of the Old Course with the iconic Claret Jug on the line.
Sampling the unique atmosphere of the historic town of St Andrews, which becomes a bustling carnival of activity whenever the Open comes round, those booking with Golfbreaks.com have the appetising opportunity to jump ahead of the expected record crowds and stay within walking distance of the famous links at the David Russell Apartments, owned by the University of St Andrews.
These packages start from just £599 for weekday access, including tickets into the championship, and on-site Golfbreaks.com representation to offer a warm welcome. Weekend and full week packages also have the added bonus of a drinks reception, just to complement the rich sense of occasion.
Elsewhere, packages are available for golfers staying in the nearby city of Dundee at the comfortable Hampton by Hilton, ideally located in the heart of the City of Discover, starting from £949 with transport to and from the Open Championship by train to Leuchars, just outside St Andrews.
Regarded as the spiritual home of the game, St Andrews is a picturesque and vibrant town packed with mysteries and places to discover. From a wide variety of restaurants, to renowned pubs that will welcome a storybook of famous faces during the championship, the event and town blend seamlessly together, and walking these streets will be just as memorable as watching the world's best players compete down at the links.
The West and East Sands are two striking beaches, the ruined Castle and Cathedral serve as a reminder of the timeless nature of this ancient settlement on the east coast of Scotland, as does the celebrated University, which adds a uniquely cosmopolitan flavour to the town. There is nothing quite like an Open at St Andrews.
You don't just have to watch the golf.
