I have been asked to bring the Scottish Ladies’ Amateur Championship 2010 to your attention. This is being held at Craigielaw Golf Club, East Lothian from 18-22 May.
Although this is primarily a scratch competition, it is open to ALL Scottish female amateur golfers, who fulfill the entry qualifications. There are plenty of prizes on offer during the qualifying rounds including:
– individual scratch and handicap prizes for the 2 individual rounds and aggregate totals
– nett and gross prizes for club teams of 2 players
– prizes for County teams of 3 players
(Club and County teams must be entered on separate entry forms which have been sent to your Clubs and Counties)
At an entry fee of £35, it is a great opportunity to play at least three rounds on Craigielaw Golf Course at very little cost. With a practice round on the 17th May, the 2 rounds of qualifying stroke play are played on the 18th and 19th May. The lowest 32 aggregate scratch scores qualify for the main match play championship and the next 16 scratch scores qualify for the 2nd flight, the Clark Rosebowl.
The Scottish gives a great social week of golf, the chance to meet friends both ‘old’ and ‘new’ and offers the chance to see some of the Country’s top amateurs do battle or even to take them on yourself. On top of all that, there is the Friday night annual party, which is Legendary!

The closing date for entries is 12 noon on Monday 19th April.
Why not give it a go? It’s more or less on home soil! Next year, once you’ve got the bug, you’ll be off to tee up on Machrihanish Golf Club (17-21 May 2011) and then Tain Golf Club (22-26 May 2012).
