BID SUPPORTS SCOTTISH OPEN AT CASTLE STUART

BID SUPPORTS SCOTTISH OPEN AT CASTLE STUART

Inverness BID supported the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart once again this year.  36 Welcome Banners were displayed hroughout the city centre along the Riverside and at Dalcross Airport.  BID Staff handed out Welcome leaflets including info about the Bunkers Festival and the Places to Eat & Drink Guide at the Inverness Bus Station as well as at Castle Stuart .  Staff were also available to answer any questions about the city centre within the Information booth in the tented village.

City centre businesses extended a warm Highland welcome and the Bunkers Festival on Friday & Saturday evening ensured that visitors and locals really got into the swing of the tournament, with early evening entertainment on offer for all.  

The hugely positive effect that the 3 year event has had to the area was highlighted in Craig Swan's article in the Daily Record on 11th July,  "Everyone is talking about golf. From the butcher to the baker to the publican, it seems everyone is involved.  It doesn’t matter who you speak to, they are either “going up there” the next day to watch, or to be doing some form of volunteer work for the tournament. Not just are the public going to the golf, the golf is coming to them.

On Monday night, Padraig Harrington was in the middle of a snaking queue in McDonald’s alongside students and builders trying to get ice-cream to stave off the stifling heat.

The following day, Phil Mickeslon was chatting to locals and messing around as he walked along the banks of the River Ness to the park with wife Amy and his family.

Walk through the town any night and you’ll spot a player, milling around looking at Inverness Castle as they head for a restaurant, families by their sides".

The three-year association with the tournament will come to a close on Sunday, with sponsors Aberdeen Asset Management and the European Tour switching the event to Royal Aberdeen in 2014.
