Ricoh and golf
The Ricoh Women's British Open is one of the five Majors in Women's Golf, and one of only two Majors played outside of the USA. Steeped in history, the event boasts a winners list like an international ‘who's who’ of women's golf.
Now in its 12th year of RICOH’s sponsorship, the 2018 the tournament will make its return to Royal Lytham & St Annes golf club, where in 2009 Scotland’s Catriona Matthew lifted the coveted trophy. For more information about the Ricoh Women’s British Open, please visit the official tournament website.
In 2018, Ricoh’s Printed Memories programme will be actively promoted during the Ricoh Women’s British Open and the tournament and players all have an opportunity to get involved.
For every birdie, eagle or hole in one scored during the tournament, Ricoh will donate £10 (birdie), £20 (eagle) or £1000 (hole in one) to Alzheimer’s Research, as part of our fundraising efforts to support the fight against Alzheimer’s. And in the spectator village at the tournament, you can learn more about Ricoh’s Printed Memories Programme and how our technology and expertise is helping to raise awareness for and raise funds in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Charley Hull & Georgia Hall – Ricoh brand ambassadors
At Ricoh we have always believed in supporting the stars of the future, today. As such, Ricoh is incredibly proud to support Charley Hull.

Thinking about tomorrow every day
In 2011, Ricoh launched its innovative and award winning Sustainability Optimisation Programme at the Ricoh Women’s British Open.
Now Ricoh’s ongoing Green Initiative For Tomorrow (GIFT) programme continues to focus the collective imagination and actions of players, spectators and fans by encouraging them to change their daily routines. The result is a reduced carbon footprint and a more sustainable future for everyone.
