Road to The Open for junior golfers

Posted on 30/05/2022

The Junior Skills Challenge offers an exciting opportunity for golfers to visit The 150th Open Championship in July 2022.

Golf clubs that have an account on the National Junior Framework from Scottish Golf can access both the Skills Challenge and Flag Championship programmes, which offer varied competition formats and result in a national final.

Scottish Golf and The R&A are working together to extend valuable opportunities to young golfers in this exciting anniversary year. This year, selected juniors from competing clubs involved in the Skills Challenge will get to visit The Open at the beginning of the week, and experience The Swingzone – where Pros will deliver coaching and competing players may even drop in to say hello. More information, including how you can enter, can be found below.

Have your juniors take part in the Skills Challenge and upload their scores to the national leaderboard?

  • Register or log in to your club account on the National Junior Framework
  • Access Skills Challenge via the dashboard or by tapping the Menu button and selecting Events and Competitions
  • Top boy and top girl from each age category of the national leaderboard as of 5pm on Sunday 18 June will be offered 8 junior and 2 adult tickets to The Open on Wednesday 13 July
