Join the Fanatics as we get behind Adam Scott, Jason Day, Marc Leishman, Geoff Ogilvy, Matt Jones, John Senden, Steven Bowditch and every other Aussie golfer in the field.

There will of course be the opportunity to see the US & European greats in action, plus we'll be offering some well earned support along the way for members of the Presidents Cup International team who have been so welcoming of us in recent years including Ernie Els, Charl Schwartzel, Branden Grace, Louis Oosthuizen and Hideki Matsuyama to name just a few. And if our old mate Freddie Couples takes to the course, lookout!

Royal Birkdale

The Birkdale hills offer majestic panoramic views of the Lancashire coastline out to the choppy waters of the Irish Sea. The course hosted its first Open Championship in 1954 and has hosted the tournament a total of nine times with winners including Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Australia's own Ian Baker-Finch and most recently Paddy Harrington in 2008.

Fanatics Golf Support

Fanatics enjoy a very strong relationship with many of the world's elite players, past and present, as well as the game's managing bodies locally right through to the USPGA Tour. Internationally we've been to multiple tournaments including the Presidents Cup, Ryder Cup, US Masters and British Open so you can rest assured we are fully aware and respectful of the game's traditions, etiquette and values.

As with all Australian sporting teams & individuals, we love nothing more than supporting Australia's golfers and we can't wait to get behind each & every one of them. Support at the golf majors is not like Presidents Cup or World Cup of Golf and you can rest assured our support is always appropriate and highly appreciated by the Aussie & international players alike.

Following the British Open golf with Fanatics is an awesome way to experience the tournament and the ideal way to offer that little something extra that might just get one of our boys over the line. As Adam Scott so famously shouted on the 18th at Augusta..."Come on Aussie!"

Fanatics Packages

We have packages for one or two rounds of the Open plus two or three nights Edinburgh hostel accommodation.

Note that there is a two night minimum stay during the Open, therefore we are unable to offer a one-night package. If you can only stay for one night for example, you'll need to book our two-night package even though you won't be using one of the nights.
