Skechers GOGOLF Shoes have been confirmed as the Official Golf Shoe of the GolfPunk Clubhouse at the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie.

GolfPunk Media C.E.O Tim Southwell commented: “It’s great to have Skechers GOGOLF Shoes on board as our official Golf Shoe partner for what is going to be a great week at The Open. We are going to be working with Skechers to introduce the brand to golfers who are not as yet familiar with the brand. And our GolfPunk Clubhouse, which is directly opposite the main entrance to the Open, is the perfect venue to do this.”

Roger Wolfe, MD of YUMAX Brand (Skechers GOGOLF Master Agent), commented: “It’s great to be teamed up with GolfPunk at The Open, and we see the GolfPunk Clubhouse as the ideal venue to showcase the Skechers GO GOLF brand to an audience of dedicated golf fans. We are planning a series of initiatives both at the venue and across social media to spread the word about the brand and create engagement with the Open audience.”

The GolfPunk Clubhouse is located at the Carnoustie Pavilion on Links Parade. The GolfPunk Clubhouse will be serving a full range of beers and other drinks, and providing food, including breakfast.

Showcasing brand-new game changing technologies, exciting new designs and eye-catching colour schemes. Skechers are continuing to take inspiration from their market-leading and vastly growing running and lifestyle divisions, as well as introduce streetwear trends to the golf footwear market. The result is total performance and out of the box comfort built specifically for the golf course.

Skechers GOGOLF shoes are worn by some of the most recognisable names in golf. These global ambassadors provide Skechers with an invaluable insight on fits, aesthetics and function throughout their diverse ranges. PGA Tour star, Matt Kuchar and two-time winner on the PGA Tour and newly crowned Irish Open Champion Russell Knox both endorse the brand with continual praise for their unmistakable comfort and style.

The Carnoustie Pavilion is an iconic landmark building in the area, but it fell into disrepair before being lovingly restored by the famous local artist Nael Hanna, who will also be displaying his paintings within the Carnoustie Pavilion, which presents yet another reason to visit.

According to Nael Hanna, “The restoration project has taken the best part of two years, and we are delighted that it will finally be ready to open in time to host golf fans from across the world. It’s a beautiful Victorian building, and I felt it simply had to be saved from dereliction. Once the Open is over, it will be a premium quality bar and restaurant, which we hope will become a favourite haunt for golfers visiting Carnoustie from across the world.”

Southwell commented: “We have some great partners on board. We are delighted to be helping the Carnoustie Pavilion launch itself to the wider world and have enormous respect for Nael and his team for bringing this iconic building back to life.”
