Red Arrows set to transform historic skyline at Home of Golf

June 03 2016

One of the world's premier aerobatic display teams are set to visit the St Andrews Links Trophy at the Home of Golf this weekend.

As some of the world’s leading amateur golfers compete for the Links Trophy, which got underway on the New Course today (3 June), the budding stars will be joined by the Red Arrows as they perform one of their famous fly overs across the Links tomorrow (4 June) evening.

Representing the speed, agility and precision of the RAF, the team is the public face of the service and is renowned and revered for their remarkable aerobatic displays.

Flying distinctive Hawk jets, the team is made up of pilots, engineers and essential support staff with frontline, operational experience.

Links Trophy Tournament Director John Grant said: "We are delighted that the Red Arrows will visit the Home of Golf tomorrow evening. With the forecast looking favourable for golf at the Links Trophy this weekend it promises to be a great spectacle for the golfers and members of the public who wish to come down and catch a glimpse of them.

"We have the biggest number of nationalities ever represented at the Links Trophy this week, it is truly an International field with many great golfers competing from Australia, South Africa, France, Spain and around the world. And closer to home we have Scotland's Walker Cup winners Grant Forrest and Euan Ferguson taking part, so it’s a great chance to come along and see these talented golfers up close. 

"We are very proud of the pedigree of field the Links Trophy attracts, it has a great track record of featuring many golfers who go on to become household names as their career's develop, including last weekend's BMW PGA Championship winner Chris Wood. 

“We hope many people will come along and support these golfers on the Old Course tomorrow and have the unique opportunity to see the Red Arrows at the Home of Golf."

The squadron are expected to fly south-east, travelling from Arbroath before their flight path takes them down the Eden Estuary, directly over the back nine of the Old Course, passing the 1st and 18th holes at approximately 6.15pm on Saturday evening. 

The iconic Swilcan Bridge will act as their marker with the area behind the 1st tee and 18th green expected to provide a good viewing platform.

The first round of the Links Trophy takes place on the New Course today before a further qualifying round on the Old Course tomorrow before a final 36 holes over the world’s most famous Links on Sunday.
