In addition to being able to watch the historic action unfold over the scenic PGA Centenary Course, with men and women playing together in a ground-breaking format, visitors to Gleneagles will be welcomed with free golf lessons, fun golfing challenges and an opportunity to watch a live golf trick shot show with renowned trick shot artist Kevin Carpenter.

Former Ryder Cup star Lawrie will also be in attendance in his role as a Glasgow 2018 Ambassador with spectators getting the opportunity to meet with one of Scotland’s greatest ever players and even being in with a chance to pick up a few tips as he passes on some advice alongside PGA Pros in the “Have a Go” practice nets.

Visitors to Gleneagles will also have the opportunity to play The 2019 Solheim Cup 9-hole Pitch & Putt Course, situated in front of the iconic Gleneagles Hotel, which entitles them to 15 per cent off Solheim Cup tickets in September 2019.

Free activities included in the spectator village include:

·         10m Long Putt Challenge

·         Fun driving range activities

·         Bunker challenges

·         6 hole putting course

Lawrie said: “As well as the opportunity to come and watch world-class golf in an historic event, it is great to see so much for fans to do in the spectator village at Gleneagles for the European Golf Team Championships. Golf events provide a terrific day out for the family with something to keep everyone interested. I hope that people will be inspired by watching some great players perform on the course before having the opportunity to try it for themselves in the spectator village. I’m looking forward to seeing as many people as possible coming out to support at Gleneagles and hopefully introducing lots of new players to the sport.”
