Alfred Dunhill Links Championship

The relaxed, friendly nature of the event is a combination of the chemistry of the Professionals and their Amateur partners alongside the knowledgeable and welcoming locals as well as the inspirational setting of the Championship.

Where can I park?

Alfred Dunhill is pleased to offer free parking at all three courses. Please follow the yellow AA directional signage on the approach roads and the direction of stewards on-site. Please note, vehicles and property are left entirely at the owner's risk.

Is there disabled access and parking?

Absolutely. Disabled spectators will need to display their disabled parking badge and should park at the Red Car Park at each of the courses.

Is there a shuttle bus service?

Shuttle buses are not yet confirmed. Please come back for an update in September.

What is the policy for mobile phones and cameras?

Spectators are allowed to bring both mobile phones and cameras provided any photography is for personal use. A strict policy will be in place to ensure play is not disrupted in any way and users should follow the guidelines below:

  • All devices must be in SILENT mode at all times
  • No audio or video recording of 'live play' is permitted on the golf course at any time during the Championship due to rights-restrictions. However, cameras and filming are allowed in the spectator village and surrounding areas.
  • No still photography on the golf course is permitted on Championship Days.
  • Data use (e.g. texting, e-mail, website access, etc.) is permitted throughout the golf course, but volume must be muted at all times.
  • Making or distributing broadcasts, commentary, news reports, data, results or statistics by any means in any format or media including any such by mobile phone or other wireless device is not permitted.

Spectators who breach any provision of this policy will be subject to the terms and conditions of entry and maybe asked to leave.

Can I bring my own food and drink?

Yes, but alcohol is not permitted. Food and drink is also available to purchase on site. Please help us respect the beauty of the courses and town and take your litter home with you.

Are dogs allowed?

Yes, dogs are welcome, and should be kept on a lead and controlled at all times. Owners are responsible for their own animal.

Can I bring a bag / rucksack?

Bags and rucksacks are permitted on each of the courses during the Championship but may be subject to a search on entry.

Can I bring a child's pushchair?

Yes you can. However please be aware of uneven terrain.

Can I buy a programme?

The Links Times, which includes the draw, Championship news and the order of play, is available from Thursday through to Sunday at all three courses.

Is there a draw for practice days?

No, we do not have a draw available for the practice days. Practice is entirely at the Players' discretion.
