NetJets Partners With The Open

The 152nd Open will begin at Royal Troon, Scotland, on July 14.

Furthering its commitment to duffers, NetJets has announced its exclusive partnership with the R&A (Royal and Ancient Golf Club) as its official private jet provider for the Open, which will take place at Royal Troon, Scotland, from July 14 to 21.

The multiyear agreement allows NetJets to extend invitations to the prestigious event to their owners—the individuals and businesses who are clients of NetJets' private jet ownership model.

The tournament, which runs from July 14 to 21, will mark the 10th time that the event will be held at Royal Troon.

NetJets has well-established ties to golf, and the new partnership reinforces the aviation company as one of the leading jet providers for exclusive golf experiences—granting owners access to some of the world's most prestigious sports tournaments.

More than 50 professional golfers choose NetJets year after year, including eight of the last 10 Open champions.

"We are committed to maintaining the highest standard in travel for the world's top performing golfers, and the partnership between NetJets and the R&A allows us to facilitate this further,” said Patrick Gallagher, president of sales, marketing and service. A brand rich in history such as the R&A aligns with the impeccable reputation NetJets has, cementing that this partnership is the perfect fit."

Neil Armit, chief commercial officer at the R&A, reinforced that message: "NetJets has a renowned reputation worldwide for its leadership in aviation, and its longstanding support for golf aligns with our own vision of ensuring that the sport continues to thrive now and in the future. We look forward to working with NetJets as we begin a new partnership that will deliver value to players competing in the Open."
