Ladies and Gentlemen

We have been allocated Hole number 10 for this years Open Championship (please see below Hole Map) and I know that you are all excited as to the colour of Jacket for this year, well, it`s Brown and Hugo Boss.

We are in the final preparations for ensuring an effective role within the Open Marshalling Team and as you will see from the attached Map, there are two crossings to deal with on our hole. We will also need 15 Marshals per shift (early and late) to cover Sunday and Monday and 24 Marshals per shift to cover Tuesday to Sunday. At this time we have not been given the specific time that we should be at our hole to start Marshalling (as we are hole 10, we will be slightly later than the first nine holes) this time will be given closer to the briefings as well as anticipated finishing times.

Kevin and myself can now get together to complete our Rota, car share etc which we intend to have ready before the briefings.

Hopefully everyone has now completed their portal registration and are looking forward to the security briefings that are planned for the 18th of June at Rowallan Castle 7pm. If anyone cannot attend the Rowallan session, but can attend another club, then please let me know. Also, in the unlikely event that you cannot make any of the briefings, please let me know ASAP so that I can contact the Marshals Team.

The briefings will cover almost all of your questions on the role that we will play, however, If you have any questions in the meantime then please let me know

I for one am getting excited as we move closer to this years Championship and I am looking forward to representing Rowallan Golf Club and ensuring that we put forward our most professional image.

Kind Regards
