The Open Hospitality teams up with Kenny Dalglish at The Hillside Club
The Open Hospitality is teaming up with Liverpool FC legend Kenny Dalglish to offer a very special experience at The 146th Open at Royal Birkdale from 20-23 July.
Those lucky enough to secure places within The Hillside Club will not only benefit from over 10 hours of fully-inclusive hospitality at one of the world’s greatest sporting events, but will also enjoy Kenny’s company when he hosts all four days at this exclusive facility. Kenny’s involvement will see The Open donate a share of the revenue to the Marina Dalglish Appeal, a charity established by the Dalglish family aimed at supporting the lives of cancer sufferers.
When guests purchase a place at The Hillside Club for The 146th Open, they will be supporting Merseyside charity, The Marina Dalglish Appeal. The partnership will make a valuable contribution to their most recent project, Larks, a breast cancer support centre where cancer patients are offered emotional support and holistic therapies proven to ameliorate their overall wellbeing.
Former Liverpool Manager and avid golfer Dalglish said, “Marina and I are delighted that The Open Hospitality has shown such an interest in the work of the Marina Dalglish Appeal and that we will receive the support of The Open when it returns to Royal Birkdale this summer. Hillside Golf Club is a great venue and I look forward to welcoming guests to The Hillside Club in July. On behalf of Marina and our family, thanks for your support.”
Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director – Championships at The R&A, organisers of The Open, said, “The work of Marina, Kenny and their family over the years has been exceptional and we are delighted to work with them through The Open Hospitality to help raise funds for the Marina Dalglish Appeal. The Hillside Club is a new hospitality offering at The 146th Open and we are pleased that this partnership will help support for cancer patients in the local community at Larks. Having Kenny on board as host enhances the offering to make the experience that bit more special for golf fans.”

The Marina Dalglish Appeal was set-up by the Dalglish family in 2005 after Marina was successfully treated for breast cancer. The charity has one simple aim: to make a difference to the lives of cancer patients and their families.
To date, the MDA has raised almost £9million which has helped to build separate Chemotherapy & Radiotherapy Units at University Hospital Aintree, a Chemotherapy Unit at Southport & Formby District General Hospital, and purchased a Mammogram machine for The Marina Dalglish Breast Unit and an iMRI scanner for the Walton Centre.
