Portakabin supports Carnoustie in preparation for the 2018 Open


Carnoustie Golf Links plan to rebuild its current premises ahead of hosting the Open Championship in July 2018 meant that the club would be short of facilities.

Construction work on the new state-of-the-art golf practice and training facility, which will also feature a new bar and restaurant overlooking the golf course, began in February 2017. The new building will provide visitors and members with a centralised hub whilst celebrating the rich golfing history of Carnoustie.

As the construction work involved partial demolition of the current site, an interim solution was needed to house Carnoustie’s pro shop, golf services and caddie master. To maintain the links’ outstanding reputation in the region, only Portakabin could deliver a solution with the quality the club needed.

Colin Sinclair, Head Professional at Carnoustie Golf Links explains; “It was important that we didn’t lose any retail or operational space during the extension of our facilities for the Open Championship. However, our requirement wasn’t just space, the interim building needed to look first-class and we wanted a supplier with a reputation of capability and experience. Portakabin was able to fulfil all of our needs and provide us with a professional and attractive facility.

“The new building is such a success, we have a great space for our pro-shop that members and visitors love; we’ve seen a significant rise in revenue since the move.”

Steven Ballantyne, Hire Manager at Portakabin, said “Carnoustie Golf Links has such a high reputation and in the lead up to the Open Championship, anything other than the highest quality solution wasn’t an option. The building looks great on site and provides light and clean space for visitors and members alike.

“The exterior of the building makes it instantly recognisable and although we experienced typical Links Course weather conditions during the delivery phase, with challenging gale force winds on the coastal site, our installation team showed their professionalism, taking the necessary decisions to make adjustments and reduce the delivery programme, installing all twelve modules in just one day.”

Construction work on site is due to complete in the New Year ahead of the Championship in July 2018.
