Tickets for the Walker Cup have been released for sale to public

Tickets for the Walker Cup to be played at Royal County Down on 8 and 9 September have been released for sale to the public by The R&A.

An adult ticket will cost £25 per day while juveniles under the age of 16 will be admitted for £10.

David Hill, the Director of Championships for The R&A said: "We have limited the daily attendance to ensure that it remains comfortable for spectators to follow the match of their choice round the course."

"Royal County Down is a true links course set in a spectacular setting with the mountains of Mourne as a backdrop and we are anticipating a large and enthusiastic local support as Great Britain and Ireland attempt to regain the Walker Cup."

"I would therefore advise intending spectators to apply for tickets as soon as possible to avoid the disappointment of being unable to watch the match."

Ticket applications should be directed to: Ticket Office, The R&A, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9JD, Scotland, through on-line purchasing at or by telephone on ++44 1334 460010.
