Scottish Boys’ and Girls’ Amateur Championships Set to Get Underway

Posted on 12/07/2022

Scotland’s top junior golfers will tee it up this week as the Scottish Boys’ and Girls’ Amateur Championships get underway.

Scottish Boys’ Amateur Championship

Taking place at Edzell Golf Club, the format of the Boys’ Amateur Championship will be two rounds of strokeplay held over Wednesday and Thursday, with the top-64 qualifying for the matchplay stages from Friday to Sunday.

In 2021, it was Archie Finnie from Royal Burgess who was crowned champion with a 2up victory in the final against Glenbervie’s Ross Laird. Finnie will be in the field again this week looking to defend his title.

Fresh from winning the Scottish Boys’ Under 16 title, Finlay Galloway will be in the field again this week looking to continue his impressive form.

There will also be three members from the same family competing at Edzell with Cameron, Samuel and Oliver Mukherjee all taking part.  Samuel and Oliver last week travelled to Germany to compete for Scotland in the European Boys’ Amateur, while Cameron was at Bishopbriggs for the Scottish Boys’ Under 16 Open Championship.

The Scottish Boys’ Amateur Championship has an impressive list of past winners including the likes of Bradley Neil, Grant Forrest, David Law, Ewen Ferguson and Andrew Coltart and everyone in the field this week will be keen to add their name to the trophy come Sunday.

A full list of tee times for Wednesday’s opening round can be found here. Scoring from the Scottish Boys’ Amateur Championship will be available here.

Scottish Girls’ Amateur Championship

The Girls’ Amateur Championship will be held at Auchterarder Golf Club.  The format for this event will be an initial 36 holes of strokeplay qualifying held on Friday, before the top 16 progress to the knockout stages held over the weekend.  The next best 16 nett scores will also qualify for a handicap matchplay flight held over the same days.

In 2021, it was Aboyne’s Carmen Griffiths who won the event with a 4&2 victory over Katie Graham in the final.

Fresh from competing for Scotland in the European Girls Amateur Championship, the full squad who travelled to Iceland will be teeing it up at Auchterarder. Robyn Fowlie, Ruby Watt, Ailsa Brannock, Freya Russell, Freya Constable, and Katie Graham will all be hoping they can get their name on the trophy this year.

Recent winners of the Scottish Girls’ Amateur include Katie Alexander who won in 2019, Hannah Darling who won back-to-back in 2017 and 2018, Hazel MacGarvie in 2016, and going a bit further back Carly Booth who won in 2007 and 2008.
