The Open

Online Community Exhibition - now live!

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we're unable to hold the planned community exhibition at The Guildhall.  However, you can see all the information online, including details of local traffic and parking restrictions, public transport and park-and-ride sites for The Open, sustainability and legacy, along with information on the economic benefits of hosting The Open.  There is also a comprehensive list of answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about The Open.

The first priority is the safety of the players, officials, spectators, volunteers, event staff and the local community. Rigorous protocols are in place at Royal St George’s.

The R&A has worked tirelessly with public health officials both nationally and locally as part of the Government’s Events Research Programme and we’re doing everything to minimise the risks and to ensure that everyone can enjoy a week of world-class golf.
