I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of myself and all the staff in the Championship Department for the significant contribution you brought to this year’s Open.
The Open has been widely perceived as an enormous success across the world. I have received numerous compliments on how the infrastructure was presented, the record crowds were handled throughout their customer journey and the positive impression all our volunteers and staff had on the visiting public. The whole Championship team and I are always extremely grateful and appreciative of the hard work and commitment that all contractors, host Club conveners, consultants, volunteers and staff bring to The Open and we are under no illusions whatsoever that we genuinely could not produce the spectacle that we do without this contribution from everyone.
Many thanks again for the herculean effort that you and your staff have put in and please know that it is appreciated by me and all my staff. The Open continues to go from strength to strength and it is because of the effort that you and your team put in.
