The Scottish family-owned motoring group, which has more than 145 branches throughout the UK, will provide a fleet of vehicles and drivers to transport the players to Carnoustie for the 24th edition of the Championship from July 22-25.
Arnold Clark was also the Official Courtesy Car to The Senior Open Championship at Muirfield in 2007 and Royal Troon Golf Club in 2008.
The company, which was founded by Arnold Clark in 1954, employs more than 8,000 staff and has an annual turnover of more than £2 billion.
Gavin Forbes, Group Operations Manager of Arnold Clark said “As in previous years we are delighted to be associated with such a prestigious championship. Throughout the year our vehicle rental division provides many cars, mpv’s and minibuses to golfing visitors to Scotland. On this occasion we look forward to providing transportation to an incredible field that includes many of the most famous and recognised golfing superstars from throughout the world.”
Andy Stubbs, Managing Director of the European Senior Tour said on behalf of The 2010 Senior Open Championship: “We are delighted to once again have the support of Arnold Clark in providing the courtesy car service to our players and VIPs. Arnold Clark provided a superb service at Muirfield and Royal Troon – one that was a key component to the logistical organisation of the Championship – and I’m sure everyone will appreciate it again at Carnoustie.”
