Scottish Open, Gullane 9-12 July 2015
The European Tour is giving the opportunity for a local club golfer to partner a European Tour Professional at a Pro-Am over Gullane’s Scottish Open composite course on Wednesday 8 July, the day before the Scottish Open starts.
A Glen competition has been nominated, the winner of which will represent us at a qualifying final to be played on Friday 12 June at Gullane. The handicap winner then will partner the Pro in the Pro-Am.
The Pro-Am place is open to Gents, Ladies and Juniors, so our nominated club competition will be the Law Trophy, to be held on Saturday 4 April. The Law Trophy is a Stableford competition open to Gents, Ladies and Juniors (with clearance from the Junior Convener to enter adult competitions). Entries for the Law Trophy open on Monday 9 March.
The European Tour has also given us discount vouchers for distribution to Law Trophy entrants. These offer £5 off a day ticket or £10 off a season ticket, so if you are planning to attend the Scottish Open and haven’t already bought your tickets, entering the Law Trophy will save you money and give you the chance to make it all the way to the Pro-Am on 8 July.
