Scottish Golf’s new PING Scottish Open Series gets underway this Friday as Murcar Links gets set to host the first of six qualifying events.
This new championship offers golfers of any ability, gender or handicap the opportunity to compete on some of Scotland’s best courses, at a great price, for the chance to win hundreds of pounds worth of PING products in prizes.
The PING Scottish Open Series takes advantage of golf’s uniqueness as a sport, allowing any golfer with a handicap from across the country to compete and be in with a chance of winning.
The leading players from each round – top four nett and top gross – will book their place in the Grand Final at Trump International in August.
In this first qualifier, the field is made up of male and female golfers from across the country with handicaps ranging from +3 to 32. With nett and gross prizes available, there is something for everyone to play for, including the chance to qualify for the Grand Final.
Murcar Links has played host to two Scottish Golf events in the last year, the 2021 Scottish Men’s Amateur Championship and the 2022 Scottish Boys Open Championship. The course provided an excellent test of golf for competitors in both those events and will be a great experience for the golfers teeing it up on Friday.
Speaking ahead of the PING Scottish Open Series getting underway, Karin Sharp, Chief Operating Officer at Scottish Golf said, “We are delighted to be welcoming golfers to Murcar Links this week to compete in the first of six PING Scottish Open Series qualifiers.
“This series of events is a valuable addition to the Scottish Golf event calendar and offers a fantastic opportunity to compete for some incredible prizes. The field for this first qualifier is a great example of the diversity of this event and it will be exciting to see competitors teeing it up and getting the Series underway.
“With five qualifying events still to come after this week, I would encourage golfers from across Scotland to see what is on offer and get involved.”
