The Scottish Mid-Amateur Stroke Play Championship will take place at Dundonald on Friday 20th April 2012.
The tournament will be held over 36 holes with the winner being the player who returns the lowest gross score for the 36 holes. There will be numerous prizes with an expected prize fund of over £1,250. The event will be open to all male golfers over the age of 35 and who are in possession of an active handicap of 12 or less. Entry into this event will also be on a first come first served basis to allow everyone a chance to enter the event.
“Following on from the success of our first events in 2011, we decided that it was time to resurrect an event in Scotland similar to the Welsh Mid Amateur that we are holding in June 2012. The feedback was so positive from the players that it cemented our belief that there is a huge gap in the market for new tournaments aimed at golfers aged over 35 years of age.” said Jason Morris, Golf Director of Wyncanton Marketing Services. “The standard of amateur golf is now such, that unless you hold a handicap of scratch or better you stand little or no chance of entering some of the more prestigious events around the country and players are left in a golfing wilderness.”
“Our events allow players the opportunity of competing against the best Mid-Amateurs in the country whilst having the opportunity of playing for some great prizes. We are expecting entrants from all over the United Kingdom and if successful we will hold the event annually.”
“These are exciting time for us and the new web site www.midamgolf.co.uk is attracting visitors from all over the world. We will be having 6 events in total next year and there will also be an order of merit.”
Anyone who would like to register their interest to play in this event is asked to visit www.midamgolf.co.uk and email their details to the Tournament Secretary.
