Spectators at The Open Championship at Royal St George’s gave their game a boost thanks to a large all-weather Huxley Golf putting green. The green was part of The R&A’s Swingzone which also sported two triple-bay Huxley Golf practice nets with mats.

PGA professionals used the facility to give expert tuition to fans who visited The Open Championship.

Alison White, Assistant Director of Golf Development at The R&A, said: “The large all-weather putting green supplied and installed by Huxley Golf for The R&A Swingzone at The Open at Sandwich this year was a welcome addition to the facilities used by the PGA teaching professionals present. It allowed additional lessons to be given outside of the teaching bays, thus increasing the coaching available to visitors. The PGA professionals were very impressed by the quality of surface that was provided.”
