Scottish Championship 2010 - Come and Play

from the SLGA website

Are you looking to make up for all the golf you've missed out on this winter? Then why not come and play in the 2010 Scottish Ladies’ Amateur Championship at Craigielaw Golf Club from 18 – 22 May. 
While this is predominantly a scratch Championship it is open to all Scottish female amateurs, who fulfil the entry qualifications, with plenty of prizes for the qualifying rounds including;  
- Individual scratch and nett prizes for individual rounds and aggregate totals,

- Nett and gross prizes for club teams of two players, and

- Prizes for County teams of three players.
(Club and County teams must be entered on separate entry forms which have been sent out to your Clubs and Counties respectively.) 
The format of the Championship is two rounds stroke play qualifying over 18 and 19 May with the lowest 32 aggregate scratch scores qualifying for the main match play Championship and the next 16 qualifying for the 2nd flight, the Clark Rosebowl.  In addition to the golf, the ‘Scottish’ is also renowned for being a great social week of golf and is always a chance to meet up with friends old and new.  If you’re not lucky enough to make it to the latter stages it’s a great opportunity to watch the top Scottish Amateurs compete for the title and for those that don’t make it to the final of the main Championship, there is always the legendary Friday night party to look forward to.   
The venue for the 2010 Championship is Craigielaw Golf Course in East Lothian.  This is a Championship links course which also boasts outstanding practice and clubhouse facilities. The entry fee of £35 will guarantee you three rounds of golf (including one practice round).
