Sodexo Prestige provided the catering, with head chef Malcolm Emery working with a team of 78 chefs to produce 85% locally-sourced food. Sodexo reported a 30% surge in revenue on 2009.

Hospitality guests were given the opportunity to rub shoulders with golfing legend Tony Jacklin, who was the official hospitality ambassador for The Open.
