Posted on 12/04/2021

Entries are open for two of the most popular Scottish Golf events for golfers of all ages and abilities. Clubs are encouraged to register their qualifying rounds to ensure that they are represented on the national stage.

R&A 9-Hole Challenge 

The Scottish Golf R&A 9-Hole Challenge returns for a two-day National Final on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th June, with the top two pairs from each day qualifying for The R&A 9 Hole Challenge Grand Final at Royal St George’s just days before The 149th Open Championship. 

Players can qualify for the National Final via a 9-hole qualifying round played at their home club before 24th May, thereafter the top 200 pairs progress to the National Final at Milnathort. 

Clubs can still register their qualifying round for this year’s R&A 9-Hole Challenge here.

Qualifiers are asked to complete the following steps when entering the National Final: 

  • Enter via the Scottish Golf App or website.
  • Both players should enter the same day and add the following into the ‘notes’ section of each entry. 
    • Playing Partners Name 
    • Playing Partners CDH

PING Scottish Mixed Championship 

Entries for the PING Scottish Mixed Championship are now open, with this year’s Grand Final being held at the former Scottish Open venue Gullane No.1. 

Entry is free and winners from club mixed foursomes stableford qualifying rounds can enter now. 

If your club has not already scheduled a qualifying round you can still do so here.

The Top 40 pairs from the national leaderboard will progress to the Grand Final on Friday 17th September, where they can win some fantastic prizes courtesy of championship sponsors PING.
