HSBC Joins Open Championship

As Patron of the Open Championship for the first time this year, HSBC will mark the event with the launch of the HSBC Golf Zone in the Tented Village at Royal St. Georges Golf Club this July.
This impressive interactive experience that covers an area equivalent to five tennis courts is expected to exceed 50,000 visitors during the course of the week.

Vistors can expect to see a full scale replica of St Andrews' notorious Road Hole bunker, Longest Drive and Nearest to the Pin competitions on an Open Championship course on a Sports Coach Platinum Golf Simulator and compare swings to great golfers using FlightScope tracking technology.

Video walls and touch screen televisions will be available throughout the HSBC Golf Zone showing past and present players and golf history and visitors will also have an opportunity to engage in designing their own golf course.
The event opens from the 10th to 17th July 2011. More information is available on the HSBC Golf website
