Grandstand build begins at Royal Troon
With 100 days to go until the world’s best players come together on the West Coast of Scotland, work has begun at Royal Troon to transform the historic links into the venue for The 145th Open.
The build begins with the 18th grandstand arena, where 6,800 fans will fill the seats under the iconic yellow leaderboards to watch the drama unfold on the closing hole.
New at Troon this year will be a grandstand overlooking the 8th tee at the Postage Stamp, one of the most famous par-3 holes in golf. Coupled with the stand at the green, over 1,000 fans can experience the roar of the crowd from the grandstand seats as players take on this iconic challenge.
Grandstand areas across the course will welcome spectators free of charge and will also feature free Wi-Fi. Fans can use The Open’s official App, which features streaming video, audio, player tracking features and a live leaderboard to ensure they don’t miss any of the action.
More than 17,000 grandstand seats will be built across the course and Practice Ground over the coming months, along with the Spectator Village, hospitality pavilions, Media Centre and other infrastructure necessary to welcome the world to Royal Troon in July for golf’s oldest and most international major championship.
