When the competition tees off the company will provide a wide range of security solutions including ticket checking, bag & scanner searches, management of left luggage and mobile phone ticketing.

G4S employees will also patrol hospitality areas including the Clubhouse, practice courses and driving ranges as well as providing security for the players' hotels. G4S will also look after travel stewarding from trains, buses and park and ride facilities.
