After the success of last year, FootJoy will once again bring a whole host of activities and special guests to the Hoylake Camping Village during Open Championship week.

FootJoy, the #1 Shoe and Glove brand in Golf will once again have front row seats at The Open Championship as the lead sponsor of The Open Camping Village for the second straight year.

Situated just minutes away from Royal Liverpool the Camping Village puts attendees at the heart of the action, on what promises to be another historic week.

To celebrate such an occasion, FootJoy are staging various exclusive events and activites throughout the week for campers to get involved with, which include the following:

FJ FitLab

As part of the headline sponsorship of The Open Camping Village, FJ will introduce a new fitting experience at the campsite in the form of FJ FitLab. Attendees will have exclusive access to the FitLab during the week of the Open Championship where they can receive free expert shoe fitting advice from the FJ Team.

All campers staying on Tuesday evening are invited to the Campout Party, which will take place in the Clubhouse in the camping village.

When: Tuesday, 18th July 2023 Time: 18:00 – 21:00

FJ Tour Players and Brand Ambassadors

As well as a number of special guest appearances from FootJoy Tour players visiting the Camping Village throughout the week, including past Major Champions and Ryder Cup stars, we will also be joined by our FJ Brand Ambassadors Peter Finch, Dan Hendriksen, Sophie Walker and Iona Stephen, who will all be taking part in the various activities and challenges throughout the week at the campsite.


“We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of The Open Camping Village after The 150th Open exceeded all expectations. The proximity to the action and our plans for the week mean that Royal Liverpool promises to provide campsite attendees with an unforgettable experience.

The launch of FJ FitLab will give golfers a fitting experience like no other and our Tuesday evening Camp-Out party will be filled with fantastic guests, including Tour stars and the always brilliant No Laying Up crew. We can’t wait to get to Hoylake and bring the Camping Village to life.”
