26 March 2024, St Andrews, Scotland: The R&A today launched One Club, an evolution of its direct-to-consumer membership initiative designed to transform how fans and golfers around the world experience the sport year-round.

One Club is free to join and provides members with a comprehensive array of year-round benefits, rewards, exclusive content and unique access to The Open, AIG Women’s Open and other prestigious R&A Championships. This includes the launch of a new global streaming service, R&A TV, powered by Endeavor Streaming.

It will also offer fans money-can’t-buy experiences and access to premium coaching and playing opportunities, allowing avid golfers and fans to take their passion for the sport to the next level. Members can interact directly through the platform by providing user-generated content and sharing their own stories and experiences of golf.

Mastercard is the exclusive presenting partner of One Club, continuing its commitment to delivering value for fans and providing experiences that bring them closer to the game of golf.

Neil Armit, Chief Commercial Officer at The R&A, said, “We want golf to be more accessible and appealing for people of all ages and backgrounds. One Club helps to achieve this by bringing fans and golfers closer to the sport they love, whether that is through the excitement and drama of our Major Championships or the enjoyment they derive from playing the sport year-round.

“We are working closely with Mastercard and other partners to provide them with compelling reasons to immerse themselves in the sport by offering a unique collection of benefits and rewards that enhance their experience of golf and make them feel more connected to it. We believe that this is crucial to inspiring broader interest in the sport and fueling future growth.”

  • Original golf lifestyle content – popular YouTuber Rick Shiels and media personality Tisha Alyn will feature in exclusive new video content, inspiring and entertaining members through their own experiences of golf.
  • Golf coaching network – top coaches such as Phil Kenyon, Dr Bob Rotella, Alex Elliott and Hannah Davies will feature in video content offering members advice, tips and experience to benefit all aspects of their own game.
