Besides the on-course action, golf aficionados can enjoy regular In the Locker Room player Q&As on the main stage, pick up some great new year bargains from the Tournament Shop or just follow the action on the Big Screen from the comfort of the Village.
Car enthusiasts will be able to eye the latest McLaren GT Super-Car on display, while epicureans can tuck into some local cuisine at the Dim Sum Station or enjoy a cool, refreshing cocktail at the Bauhinia Gin Bar.
Regular food stalls will once again be serving a selection of family favourites and the team from Yardley Brothers will once again be pouring pints of their award-winning craft ale to keep hydration levels high. Victoria Wines adds to the line-up with a selection of reds, whites and roses, all available at the Spectator Village wine bar.
