On Monday 15th April, the PPL Golf Team travelled from our HQ in Liverpool to Royal Troon to embark on a 100-plus day journey to brand (and debrand) the course for the 152nd edition of The Open Championships.
We’ve been branding The Open for over 40 years. Our services include signage, scoreboards, leaderboards, vehicle livery, tee LED screens, course wayfinding, media centre internal fit-out, and publishing the official programme, course maps, and media guide. We take pride in printing thousands of bespoke items such as pin flags, player names, caddie patches, and hand-bats. Plus, during the championship, our team will ensure the iconic Claret Jug is presented on the first tee each morning.
