Councillor John McMillan, East Lothian Council spokesperson for Economic Development and Tourism, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming as many visitors as possible to this fantastic tournament. Our sustainable transport plan for spectators worked extremely well last time we hosted the event so I hope many people will once again take advantage of the very convenient options available and choose to leave the car at home. These options also give visitors the chance to linger in North Berwick, Gullane and elsewhere in East Lothian and enjoy a warm local welcome and sample some of the local hospitality. There are many great food & drink, hospitality and retail businesses very near the course that I hope visitors will enjoy.”
