Omaha, Neb. – The ticket application process for the 34th U.S. Senior Open Championship, conducted by the United States Golf Association, to be held July 8-14, 2013 at Omaha Country Club, commenced today.

A limited number of tickets will be sold to the public in order to ensure a quality viewing experience for all spectators. Given that the demand for tickets will exceed the available inventory, all available tickets will be sold through a ticket application process and a random draw will be conducted.

Spectators can select from two ticket options ranging in price from $150 to $250. All tickets include ticket fees, sales tax, free parking and free shuttle transportation to the main admission gate.

The first option is the Weekly Ticket Package, which includes one ticket for each day of the championship (Monday–Sunday) at $150, with access to the grounds and grandstands.

An upgraded ticket option, the Trophy Club, available for $250, includes one ticket for each day of the championship (Monday – Sunday) with access to the grounds, grandstands, and into an exclusive and upgraded Trophy Club pavilion located in the middle of championship holes 14, 15 and 16. This climate-controlled pavilion includes amenities such as indoor/outdoor seating, television monitors and computer scoring terminals. Upscale food and beverages are available for purchase inside the Trophy Club.

Throughout the week of the championship, children 17 and under will receive free admission when accompanied by a ticketed adult. They will also receive front-row seating in all grandstands.

Ticket applications for the 2013 U.S. Senior Open Championship are now available through the championship website at www.2013ussenioropen.com, by calling 402-991-1424, or at any Baker’s Supermarket. A maximum of eight ticket packages per option are permitted per application.
