With some of the USA’s top golfers coming to Scotland to compete in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open tournament at Dundonald Links from July 13-16, the European Tour is teaming up with Glasgow BBQ and brunch joint the Crafty Pig to celebrate with the ultimate Fourth of July breakfast feast.
Doors at the Crafty Pig on Great Western Road in Glasgow’s West End will open at 9am on Tuesday, with the first 100 people set for a breakfast to remember thanks to the European Tour. The lucky 100 will be treated to pancakes, bacon and maple syrup, coffee with cream and sugar and delicious milkshakes, as well as great Scottish Open offers. They will also be able to get a selfie with the Scottish Open trophy.
Amongst the golfing stars leading the charge for the American invasion is Rickie Fowler, who returns to Scotland to try to reclaim the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open trophy he won in 2015. He’ll be joined at Dundonald Links by compatriots including Matt Kuchar, Patrick Reed and Jason Dufner.
They’ll compete against a stellar line-up of the world’s best golfers, including World Number Four Rory McIlroy, The Open Champion Henrik Stenson and former Masters Tournament winner Adam Scott.
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers and Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire will headline a packed week of entertainment outside the ropes at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.
With free entry for under-16s*, families looking for a great day out can enjoy a range of fun activities throughout the week, including a bungee run, inflatable obstacle course, play bus, carousel, face painting and nature trail on the grounds of the event. Fans of all ages will also be able to get up close to their favourite golfers, with a series of player Q&As on the show stage.
There will also be a special kids zone as part of the first ever Golf Show by American Golf in association with the European Tour and Sky Sports, while American visitors cheering on their countrymen can enjoy Scottish hospitality. A range of food and drink will be on offer from local suppliers, plus live cooking exhibitions using local produce.
The entertainment begins on the evening of Tuesday July 11, with the Hero Challenge – an exciting one-hole knockout contest featuring star golfers and celebrities. Among those competing will be former Scottish rugby international Thom Evans and Westlife singer Brian McFadden. Fans can secure free entry to the Hero Challenge by booking here
