Ahead of last weekend's The Genesis Scottish Open in East Lothian, the first event in Scotland's summer of golf line-up, our staff took part in a beach clean along the North Berwick coastline. 

The beach clean, which took place next to The Renaissance Club in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society, marked the launch of a sustainability partnership between OCEANTEE and The DP World Tour.

The DP World Tour and OCEANTEE signed a three-year partnership agreement in June that will see the company become the Tour’s Official Sustainable Products Supplier. OCEANTEE has also become an Official Supplier at five tournaments on the DP World Tour schedule each year, where OCEANTEE will hold its Sustainability Series – an inspiring collection of educational outreach initiatives for fans at tournaments.

Staff from VisitScotland took part om the litter pick up, alongside children from the Stephen Gallacher Foundation and Tour players.

“2022 is an incredible year for golf in Scotland. These golf tournaments provide the perfect stage to showcase Scotland’s first-class golf regions and course to fans from around the world. It was fantastic to be involved in the OCEANTEE litter pick and help support such an important initiative.”

Alan Grant, Senior Golf Manager, VisitScotland

The work being carried out at The Open is part of a wider programme of sustainability and climate action during Scotland’s summer of golf. Led by VisitScotland, and supported by GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf, there are coordinated efforts across all of the professional golf tournaments taking place in Scotland in 2022 – helping to make sure that Scotland’s leadership in golf and sustainability is both accelerated and promoted on the global stage.

Scotland’s summer of golf, which sees five major golf events staged across five consecutive weeks, teed off with the Genesis Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club in East Lothian, with The 150th Open at The Old Course in St Andrews now underway until Sunday 17 July.

The Senior Open presented by Rolex takes place at Gleneagles in Perthshire from 21-24 July and then the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open is being held at Dundonald Links in North Ayrshire from 28-31 July.

The final event is the AIG Women’s Open at Muirfield from 4-7 August.
