Scottish golf announces launch of 2022 events with NEW National Open Series and Scottish Open men’s qualifier
Scottish Golf is proud to announce an even greater range of opportunities and broader opportunities for all types of golfers to participate in 2022.
In addition to our existing schedule of annual events, this year we have two exciting new developments:
Scottish Men’s Open Pre-qualification
With Scottish Men’s Open Championship entries still growing year after year, we are delighted to offer players greater ways to qualify for this year’s event.
There will now be a pre-qualifying round at Fraserburgh on Tuesday 24 May for non-released players. For the first time, this pilot will secure a minimum of 30 qualifying places in the Scottish Men’s Open at Cruden Bay through an 18-hole stroke play pre-qualifying round.
We encourage all qualifying players to seize this exciting opportunity that creates a more transparent and accessible route for golfers to qualify for the Scottish Men’s Open. Further details on the event are available on the Scottish Golf App.
NEW National Open Series to be Launched in February 2022
An exciting new open series of multi-tee events for all golfers will be launched in February.
The new event will ensure that qualifying events take place during the summer months at some star courses. Participants will have the opportunity to experience exactly what it feels like to play in a National Championship, enjoy great hospitality and have a chance to win great prizes and qualify for the Grand Final. Keep an eye on this space during February for more information on this new event and how you can get involved!
The easiest and best way to enter our competitions is through the Scottish Golf application, where players can access event information, live updates, scores and book practice rounds among many other features. Our events would not be the success they are without the cooperation and generosity of our host clubs and their members. We would like to thank all the clubs that host Scottish golf events in 2022.
