Hot on the heels of the Made in Denmark event proving a big hit with spectators due to on-course facilities, such as a bar which players walked through en route to one of the tees, similar plans have been put in 
place for the East Lothian 

For instance, fans will be able to watch the action from an arena at the par-3 15th that will feature a Tennent’s Bar, the Skean Dhu hospitality suite and a big screen. In addition, the Edinburgh Gin Experience will overlook the par-3 third and fifth holes with stunning views of the Firth of Forth, while there will also be live music and a host of fun activities in the spectator village.
