As ever, hospitality for The Open Championship
(16-23 Jul) is selling fast. Indeed, the Champions Club at Royal Birkdale has already sold out on a couple of days. But don’t panic: Sodexo Prestige
(0844 371 0883) has put together some offsite alternatives. The nearby Hillside Golf Club is offering guests all of the usual hospitality treatment – breakfast, lunch, drinks and afternoon tea – as well as a chance to play a round of golf themselves. Prices start at £450pp. Want to stay close to the action? The Claret Jug Pavilion (from £699pp) looks straight onto the first tee.
