Fireworks make it a spectacular Saturday at St Andrews

St Andrews, October 1, 2022 – The St Andrews night sky will come alive with a spectacular fireworks display on the eve of the final day of this year’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

An annual favourite with golfers, spectators and St Andrews residents, the display will begin at 8.25pm on Saturday and take place on the West Sands, adjacent to the Old Course.

The best view will be from Links Road, behind the 17th green on the Old Course, and from the track in front of the Old Course Hotel.

With a prize fund of US$5 million, the Alfred Dunhill Links incorporates two separate competitions - an Individual Professional tournament for the world's leading golfers and the Team Championship in which the professionals are paired with amateur golfers, which creates a unique atmosphere. The Championship, a celebration of Links golf, is played over the Old Course St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns, from September 29 – October 2.

Defending champion Danny Willett, the 2016 Masters champion, will be up against some stiff opposition. Also playing are Major champions Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry and Francesco Molinari, US PGA star Billy Horschel and two-time winners Padraig Harrington and Tyrrell Hatton.

For the first three days entry is FREE, tickets are not needed. Only tickets for the final day, Sunday, October 2, on the Old Course, need to be purchased. There will be no ticket sales on the gate, tickets can be purchased in advance via the following link: www.alfreddunhilllinks.com/tickets/

In June 2011 the Alfred Dunhill Links Foundation was established as the official Foundation of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. The Foundation is committed to developing young amateur golfers in Scotland and South Africa and also supports the University of St Andrews and the St Andrews Pilgrim Foundation, which refurbishes and preserves historical monuments in the town.
