Disability Strategy

RICOH WOMEN’S BRITISH OPEN 2014 – Disability Strategy

INTRODUCTION

The Ricoh Women’s British Open is proud to welcome all members of the public to the only Women’s ‘Major’ outside of North America.
The Organisers have made all reasonable adjustments to be as inclusive as possible throughout the Championship and, while doing their utmost to accommodate everyone, the very nature of the golf course does mean that some spectators will not be able to access all parts of the site.

Alternatively, disabled badge holders should follow signs to CAR PARK 1, where they will be given access to this car parking area which is the closest available to the course and Championship facilities.
There are no concessions other than those already offered on the www.ticketfactory.com.
