In a unique move, the Links Trust, which manages the golf courses at St Andrews including the Old Course, has teamed up with the Royal & Ancient Golf Club, which runs the Open Championship, to develop a special range of products and mementoes for this historic event.
The result is an exclusive collection of golf wear and gifts branded with both logos – the Open Championship Claret Jug and the Links Trust emblem. The clothing includes luxury cashmere and mercerised cotton sports shirts, caps and visors, and lambs wool sweaters and pique shirts. In the gift and accessories range are towels, golf balls, ball markers and golf umbrellas.
“The Trust was delighted to be able to work together with the R&A on developing a high quality range for the Millennium Open. It is such a significant and historic event that we wanted to create a collection which was extra special,” said Peter Mason, external relations manager with St Andrews Links Trust.
The St Andrews Links Golf Shop web site offers a completely secure service with despatch within 48 hours. Customers can track their orders and are kept updated with progress.
The St Andrews Open 2000 range will be available at the four official Open outlets in the Open Championship Exhibition Tent and at other key locations in the tented village, as well as in the British Golf Museum during the week of the Open Championship (17-23 July). Outside those dates, it is on sale in the Trust’s three shops in St Andrews – in the Links Clubhouse, the Eden Clubhouses and the shop behind the 18th green.
