It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that Spectrum Events’ 2017 calendar is about to get into full swing; yes, we’ve already been very busy this year with domestic and international football at Hampden Park, not to mention a sell-out Stone Roses concert, and 250,000+ people to clean up after at The Royal Highland Show. Now, we are turning our attention to the fairways and greens of competitive golf to provide services to the biggest golf events taking place in Scotland this year.
This week we are delighted to be working with the European Tour for the fifth consecutive year at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open Championship which takes place at Dundonald Links from the 12th – 16th July. The Spectrum Events Team have been at the Ayrshire course all week preparing for some of the biggest names in golf as they compete for the much-coveted title of Scottish Open Champion 2017. As usual, the Scottish Open will be broadcast around the world and remains one of the few European Tour events that is shown live on American television.
With some of the greatest golfers in the game registered to play, the Ayrshire course is certain to draw a massive crowd, so we know we have a busy few days ahead to keep all public areas clean and free of waste. However, our duties at these major golf events go far beyond the public areas of the course – we also provide cleaning and waste management services for all other public areas; this includes, public catering, merchandising, corporate hospitality suites, VIP areas, official and technical areas and BOH operational areas.
We are then back at Dundonald Links for the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open Championship from the 27th – 30th July. Once again, we expect some big crowds as some of the leading ladies of the game compete for the Ladies Scottish Open title.
The following week, we move to the other side of the country to provide our full range of services for the Scottish Seniors Open which is being played at the superb Renaissance Club at North Berwick from the 4th – 7th August.
These three events will keep us busy in Scotland for the next few weeks, however it doesn’t stop there; we are then off South of the border to provide our full range of cleaning and waste management services at the British Masters28th September – 1st October at the magnificent Close House course in Newcastle upon Tyne. Long established in the world’s golfing calendar, the British Masters always attracts a fantastic field made up from some of the best players in the game. We are looking forward to taking our experience and expertise South of the border for one of the biggest events in the golfing calendar.
We will be bringing you updates from each of these prestigious events as they happen, for now it’s heads down as we tee off with the AMM Scottish Open Championship this week.
