I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for a great day on Friday. I was really impressed with the event, and with the calibre, interest and friendly customers that I met through the day.
It was well organised, and a great venue, and no wonder the Grand Open has been running now for 10 years. I was delighted that Turnberry could be part of the event – and it was nice to receive such a warm reception from the competitors. The weather was also an added bonus!“

Grand Open Testimonials Icelandair – 2016
”For the past two years, Icelandair has participated in the Grand Open golf tournament in Stockholm, Sweden. We were extremely pleased with their organizational skills and attention to detail. The Grand Open is more than just another golf tournament, it’s a brilliant tool for networking opportunities, not only on the day of the tournament but also during the evening entertainment, pre-drinks/dinner. On top of that, they have organized many networking events throughout the year, which have been beneficial to Icelandair with brand recognition in Sweden together with direct business generated from the participation in Grand Open”.

TDC Sverige AB – 2013
”Först och främst vill jag tacka för en fantastisk dag och kväll!
Jag tycker att ert upplägg med att avdramatisera tävlingsdelen och främja det sociala är helt lysande.
Jag har spelat många tävlingar och vi arrangerar även egna kundevent men har aldrig upplevt en sådan glädje
Hos ALLA deltagare.
Ett föredöme för andra och kanske ett sätt att få tillbaka glädjen i golfen vilket skulle gynna golfen generellt.
Tack så mycket!”
Henrik Romilson – Försäljningschef

The Gleneagles Hotel – 2011
”I have only praise for The Grand Open – well-run, well-attended and, well, first-class! I met over 160 golfers during the course of the day and all were interested to hear about Scotland and the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in 2014. The Swedes love golf and for a famous golf resort in the Home of Golf to be able to partner such a fun and popular event made complete sense. I look forward to my next trip to Stockholm and also to welcoming The Grand Open golfers to Scotland”.
Graham Hesketh, Regional Sales Manager

Finnish National Lottery, Veikkaus Oy – 2011

”Vill framföra ett STORT tack för en extremt lyckad dag. Det är totalt sett den bästa tävlingen/upplägget/arrangemanget jag upplevt i Sverige. Har bott en längre tid i Asien och förundras hela tiden över det faktum att ingen lyckas göra saker lika superbt som därborta. Du/Ni gjorde det! Suve­ränt! Mina kinesiska vänner var mycket imponerade!”
Ulf Thalin, Partnering Sales Director

Arlanda VIP Service – 2010
”Jag tycker att arrangemanget runt Grand Open var mycket välorganiserat, trevligt och givande. Mat och service var verkligen högklassiga, för att inte tala om stämningen på banan och under den dansanta avslutningen! Det känns extra roligt att skriva detta till er eftersom jag är superkräsen och alltid brukar hitta en lista av saker som jag tycker borde gjorts bättre. Det enda jag saknade var fler tjejer i spel.”
