Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely. Disabled spectators will need to display their disabled parking badge and should park at the Red Car Park at each of the courses.
What is the policy for mobile phones and cameras?
Spectators are allowed to bring both mobile phones and cameras provided any photography is for personal use. A strict policy will be in place to ensure play is not disrupted in any way and users should follow the guidelines below:
- All devices must be in SILENT mode at all times
- No audio or video recording of 'live play' is permitted on the golf course at any time during the Championship due to rights-restrictions. However, cameras and filming are allowed in the spectator village and surrounding areas.
- No still photography on the golf course is permitted on Championship Days.
- Data use (e.g. texting, e-mail, website access, etc.) is permitted throughout the golf course, but volume must be muted at all times.
Spectators who breach any provision of this policy will be subject to the terms and conditions of entry and maybe asked to leave.
