Emirates is offering VIP tickets to the Genesis Scottish Open, being held at the Renaissance Golf Club from 8th to 10th July.
You will need to move quickly however as tomorrow is the last day to buy the remaining pairs.
50,000 to 60,000 Emirates Skywards miles, which you can get from converting 50,000 American Express Membership Rewards points, gets you ONE VIP hospitality ticket.
There is also an auction for an ‘Honorary Observer’ package for the final day, which lets you walk INSIDE the rope and effectively stand with the players.
You can get your tickets via the Emirates sporting events website here.
PS. There are also Tour de France and Horizon Irish Open golf VIP packages available, amongst other events. Hungarian Formula 1 ‘Paddock Club’ packages are also being auctioned, for a fraction of what you’d pay for the British Grand Prix.
