PGA National pro-am championship – Scottish qualifier

Returning for 2021, the National Pro-Am Championship provides the opportunity for professionals and amateurs to win one of Europe’s largest pro-am events.

Open to male and female competitors aged 18 or over, regional qualifier winners take part in the final hosted at PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club, November 21-25.

Winners of the club qualifiers take part in one of the 12 regional qualifiers.

The Scottish qualifier is this Monday (12 Jul) and after his fantastic win in the Montrose Links event, Raymond Craig will tee off with our professional Jason Boyd with a great chance of going to Turkey.

Still Golphin

The last classes before our summer break take place this week and it has been rewarding and encouraging to see the progress the kids have made over the last 10 weeks.

A brilliant mix of 34 boys and girls have taken part and met all the challenges head on.    8 of the Juniors had Season Tickets at Montrose Golf Links prior to joining “Still Golphin” and the rest will receive Season Tickets so we can keep engaging with them.

They have learned lots of new skills in a fun environment and made lots of new friends along the way.

We will start again in August, so look out for details of dates and class times.

A great big thank you to all the kids and also to Keith Norman and Colin Frew for helping our head professional Jason Boyd throughout the programme.

Also it has been great to see the kids involved in the Scottish Golf 6s league competing with Arbroath, Carnoustie and Kirriemuir.

They have also been competing in the Scottish regional finals of the Scottish Golf Flag events at Paul Lawrie Golf Centre, with our teams finishing a very creditable 5th and 7th from a field of 14.

Open Championship 2021

The Open returns to Royal St George’s next week for the first time since 2011, when an emotional Darren Clarke fulfilled his boyhood dream of becoming Champion Golfer of the Year.

Located on the Kent coastline, the Sandwich links will showcase the world’s best players as they compete for the Claret Jug in the 149th Open.

You can view recaps of the last five Opens at Royal St George’s here.

How do you think Rory will get on? And who are you picking as the winner?

Our question is in what year did Scotland’s own Sandy Lyle win at Royal St George’s?


The answer: 1985
