theScore Bet is elevating its presence in its first year as the Official Gaming Partner of the RBC Canadian Open, introducing a premium, first-of-its-kind on course viewing experience.
theScore Bet Skyline Seats will bring fans up to 100 feet above the RBC Canadian Open Championship to watch tournament action like never before, overlooking the 1st and 18th holes at St. George’s Golf and Country Club in the greater Toronto area.
theScore Bet Skyline Seats will host tournament attendees high above the course to enjoy food and beverage, providing a bird’s eye view of the championship golf course and sweeping views of the Toronto skyline.
The RBC Canadian Open takes place Thursday, June 9 to Sunday, June 12.
“To tee off our partnership with Golf Canada and the RBC Canadian Open, we wanted to create a memorable and completely unique golf viewing experience that adds real value for fans attending Canada’s premier golf event,” said Aubrey Levy, Senior Vice President of Content and Marketing, theScore Bet.theScore Staff
The Skyline Seat lounge is available to theScore Bet account holders in Canada that are active on the sportsbook platform. Complimentary food and drinks will be provided so its worth checking out if you have a theScore Bet account. The experience will last about 30 minutes for those account holders.
How good will the views be exactly? The seats appear to be situated so you are looking forward through the bar area. It would be cool if they actually rotated 360-degrees to expand the viewing opportunities. Thus, the Skyline Seats appear to be for those looking to take a break from the golf action.
I did initially have some concerns about the safety of the seats as the image rendering doesn’t show much in the way of safety. However, the article I read says the 22 person structure will have harnesses at each seat (hopefully for the wait staff as well). A gust of wind or tipsy patron would be disastrous without these safety measures.
It will be interesting to see how this experience plays out. Will this be offered at future golfing events? Or will this be a one-off viewing experience? Although I won’t be at the tournament to check it out, I’m sure the golf broadcast will have some words about it.
