The RandA, the organizers of The Open Championship 2014, provides accessible facilities for visitors and spectators with disabilities, including those using a wheelchair.
At The Open 2014, wheelchair friendly stands are available at the 8th, 15th, 17th and 18th holes. Some areas on the Royal Liverpool golf course are unsuitable for many spectators, particularly those in wheelchairs, with rough and sloping ground which can become soft and slippery in wet conditions. However, a number of areas on this famous links golf course are more suitable than others for wheelchair users, with a central tarmac path crossing specific points on the course, including the 1st Green, 5th Green, 8th Green, 8th Tee, 9th Tee, 15th Green, 17th tee and 17th Green. British Open Golf Marshals have been requested by RandA to assist in asking spectators to allow wheelchair users to access the front of the rope line where possible.
Wheelchair-accessible toilets will be provided in the Tented Villages and out on Hoylake links course. The majority of catering facilities, merchandise tents and spectator experience areas will be accessible for wheelchair users.
If any visitors to The Open 2014 have limited mobility and would like further information concerning provision for wheelchair users, please call The R&A Ticket Office +44 (0) 01334 460000.
