The Ayrshire Golf Association have been approached to assist in arranging accommodation for a group of young South African players during two of the major amateur events to be held in Ayrshire this year.
A squad of squad of six South African players will be in Ayrshire for this year’s Scottish Stroke-Play Championship and Amateur Championship being staged at Kilmarnock (Barassie) and Royal Troon respectively.
The Scottish Golf Union are in the third year of sending the Scottish men’s squad to SA to play and train during our winter. In this schedule , Scotland play an International Match against South Africa and have forged close relations with their counterparts at the South African Golf Association.
Out of this relationship Scotland have agreed that every second year an International Match will be held in Scotland.
As a result the team of six players will be in Scotland this year to play in the Scottish Stroke-Play, Links Trophy and The Amateur Championship as well as playing the International Match at Prestwick GC on 13 and 14 of June.
Scotland are keen to assist by trying to have the players hosted during the three tournaments by local golfers.
The dates during which hosting is being sought for the the six players are :-
30 May to 3 June (incl) for the Scottish Stroke-Play
15 to 23 June (incl) for The Amateur Championship.
The Ayrshire Golf Association President David Miller is co ordinating efforts in this regard.
Should any local golfers wish to assist with hosting one or more of the players, details should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and these will be forwarded to President David MIller.
