Security Scotland’s Events Division are delighted to be awarded the contract for this year’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is one of the richest golf tournaments on the European Tour. It is played in September, on three different links courses, centred on the “home of golf”, St Andrews in Fife, Scotland.
The tournament is played to a pro-am Team format, with each team consisting of one amateur and one professional. The three course rotation consists of The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie Golf Links and Kingsbarns Golf Links.
To increase interest in the event, many of the amateurs are well known personalities from the worlds of sport and entertainment. These have included Ian Botham, Boris Becker, Michael Douglas, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Vaughan, Matthew Pinsent, Hugh Grant, Justin Timberlake, Michael Phelps and Shane Warne.
Eddie Tobin, Security Scotland’s Group Managing Director commented, “this is a fantastic, prestigious championship for us to be awarded during such challenging times for most sectors, especially the events industry. We are also looking forward to working with 3 global organisations – Richemont, The European Tour and IMG”.
