Exclusive behind the scenes tickets to the Open Championship

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has partnered with Sky Golf to offer you a once-in-a-lifetime behind the scenes day at the 146th Open Championship hosted by Royal Birkdale.

Current bid: £4,000 

The auction closes at 5pm on Thursday 6 July, email [email protected] to bid.

The lot: From 10am Wednesday, 19 July, two people will spend the day as guests of Sky Golf, with unrivalled, behind the scenes access at Royal Birkdale. The winning bidder and guest will spend the morning of final practice day touring mobile TV units and meeting presenters, before enjoying lunch in the hospitality area. The afternoon will be spent on the practice range at Sky Cart, witnessing interviews and interacting with some of the most well-known golfers in the world!

In May Sky Sports were awarded the BAFTA for best sports production for their coverage of the 145th Open at Royal Troon.  It was the first to be broadcast exclusively live on Sky Sports, and the innovative production of The Open was named the winner ahead of BBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympics, the Six Nations clash between England and Wales and the Paralympics on Channel 4.

Don’t miss the chance to gain exclusive access to golf’s oldest championship in support of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Please note that travel and accommodation is not included in this prize.
