Scottish Golf are proud to announce an even greater variety of events and broadened opportunities for all golfer types to participate in 2022.
In addition to our existing schedule of annual events, this year we have two exciting new developments:
With Scottish Men’s Open Championship entries continuing to grow year on year we are pleased to offer players increased means to qualify for this year’s event.
There will now be a pre-qualifying round at Fraserburgh on Tuesday 24 May for non-exempt players. For the first time this pilot will decide a minimum of 30 qualifying places into the Scottish Men’s Open at Cruden Bay by means of an 18-hole stroke play pre-qualifying round.
We would encourage all eligible players to embrace this exciting opportunity which creates a more transparent and accessible route for golfers to qualify for the Scottish Men’s Open. Further details about the event are available on the Scottish Golf App.
An exciting new open series of multi-tee events for all golfers is set to launch early in 2022.
The new event will see qualifying events take place throughout the summer months at some stellar courses. Competitors will get the opportunity to experience exactly what it feels like to play in a National Championship, enjoy some great hospitality and be in with a chance of winning some great prizes and qualifying for the Grand Final. Watch this space during February for more information about this new event and how you can get involved!
The easiest and best way to enter our competitions is through the Scottish Golf App, where players will be able to access event information, live updates, enter scores and book practice rounds amongst many other features. Our events wouldn’t be the success they are without the co-operation and generosity of our host clubs and their members. We would like to extend a warm thanks to all clubs that are hosting Scottish Golf events in 2022.
