Article date: 15/09/2014
This week Evacusafe are proud to announce they have been chosen as the official provider of Evacuation Chairs for the 2014 Ryder Cup.
Universally recognised as the greatest tournament in match play golf, this year’s Ryder Cup takes place at the superb Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire, Scotland between 26 and 28 September. This is the second time the tournament has taken place in Scotland since it was established in 1927.
The Ryder Cup’s requirement is for 18 chairs to cover any potential emergency evacuation in any of its multiple locations that will be utilised during the competition. These include the world famous hotel, lodge and spa to the many temporary structures erected for hospitality, administration and the world media.
Paul Mitchell, Director of Evacusafe, said “We are extremely honoured and proud to be chosen by one of sport’s most prestigious events. Outside of the Olympics and the World Cup, the Ryder Cup is now seen as a competition watched by millions of people across the globe.
We have worked with the PGA previously providing them with chairs to support other golfing tournaments on the tour and although Evacusafe is known as one of the leading developers and manufacturers of evacuation chairs and equipment; it’s a fact that becomes all the more evident when one of the most famous sporting events in the world selects us to provide the solutions to assist in the evacuation of mobility impaired persons.”
The first official Ryder Cup took place at Worcester Country Club, in Massachusetts USA. Taking place every two years, the competition sees teams of professional golfers from Europe and the United States competing against each other over a three day period, with the venue alternating between golf courses in Europe and the USA.
