Scottish Golf Courses

New Event Launched For Senior Golfers

The inaugural World Masters Golf Championship has been launched with a call to all amateur golfers over 50 years of age to take up this unique chance to play some of Scotland’s top links.

The tournament is open to all golfers with an official handicap who are over 50 years of age as at September 17, 2017 and will be staged over four days from September 18-21 on courses including Royal Troon, Prestwick and Dundonald Links.

The championship is the brainchild of Hamish Grey (formerly CEO of Scottish Golf) and Andy Salmon (formerly CEO of the Ladies’ Golf Union and Deputy CEO of Scottish Golf), who have over 50 years of experience in sport and golf event management between them. 

‘The idea is to stage an annual celebration of golf with a top quality championship for club-level amateur golfers here in the home of golf, playing competitive golf in a fun, social environment on some of the world’s leading golf courses,” said Grey.

The format is individual Stableford with prize categories based on
handicap and age, along with the overall prize and title of World Masters Golf champion.

There are two different options available to those who would like to take part. To find out more, visit
