Open Golf Championship’s £69m Boost To Scottish Economy

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the first two paragraphs.

The Open golf championship at Carnoustie in July boosted the Scottish economy by £69m this year, according to an independent study.

Researchers at Sheffield Hallam University found the Angus area alone received a £21m cash injection from hosting the event.

It just goes to show the value of big events to a country, region or a city.

I have to ask the opposite  question! – Do some areas of the UK, suffer because they don’t host a big sporting event, arts festival or site or museum of national importance?
