47th Walker Cup at Hoylake Set Up And Ready For This Weekends Golf

Our Special Events Engineer Patrick has been on site at Hoylake all week setting up communications, public address systems and the media centre for this weekends 47th Walker Cup competition at Royal Liverpool (Hoylake).

The 47th Walker Cup match between Great Britain and Ireland and the United States will be played at Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) in the 150th year of the club’s existence.

The famous Hoylake links is braced for one of the biggest weeks on the golf calendar, where two teams of ten amateurs from both sides of the Atlantic lock horns. The United States of America has not won on British & Irish shores since 2007 when they inched to a one-point victory at Royal County Down, but their squad is already packed with well-established names.

A total of 26 matches will be played during the two-day competition. Two different forms of match play are used in the competition; singles and foursomes (alternate shot). Four foursomes and eight singles matches are played on the first day of the competition. On the second and final day of the competition there are again four foursome matches but there are two additional single matches, so that all team members play in the final session of the competition.

Our engineer Patrick will now be on site as our support engineer for the duration of this weekends event and will be working hard when the event finishes, to bring all our specialist radio and public address equipment back safely.
