Billy Simkiss (Employee)

“ Just thought I’d send a wee email to say many thanks for all the work you did at Royal Troon. Having only ever been a spectator, I was astonished at the work that goes on behind the scenes to make such an event happen. Simply put – Unbelievable. That event did not just happen, many people like yourselves have put in a huge amount of time and effort to allow ‘a bunch of guys play 4 rounds of golf’. It was a great week with thrilling golf and went off without any incidents so that says a lot for the organisation around the event. I thoroughly enjoyed my time and I’m more than happy to attend Birkdale in 2017. Hope you both are now having a well earned rest! Kind regards, David.”
