Open ticket prices to remain unchanged for Carnoustie

St. Andrews, Scotland - Tickets for the 1999 Open Championship at Carnoustie have been frozen to 1998 levels, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club announced.

The Open will return to Carnoustie for the sixth time on 15th - 18th July 1999. The Open was last played there in 1975, when Tom Watson joined previous winners Tommy Armour, Henry Cotton, Ben Hogan and Gary Player.

"We had a modest increase in prices this year at Royal Birkdale and in line with our policy of continuing to offer the public value for money, we have not applied any increase for 1999," said R&A Championship secretary David Hill.

Once again children under 16 will be allowed in free and those 16 to 21 can gain entry for 10 on championship days and 6 or less on practice days, Hill added.
