Lothians Golf Association

 

Junior Champion of Champions

The event 

The Lothians Boys' Champion of Champions is a relatively new event, having been started at Craigmillar Park in their Centenary year in 1995. Wherever possible, the venue has been at a Lothians club celebrating its Centenary.  

It is interesting to note that the first winner of the Speirs Trophy, the prize on offer in the Lothians' Boys' Championship, was J Aitchison (Caermount) and this long-standing non course-owning club now supports Lothians junior golf by sponsoring the Boys' Champion of Champions event.

Two winners of the event, 1998 and 1999 champion David Inglis and 2002 victor Lloyd Saltman, went on to represent Great Britain & Ireland in the Walker Cup.  

2020

The finals will be played on Sunday 28 March 2021 at   Baberton Golf Club . The idea of playing the event at the beginning of the following season was trialled in 2018 to see if entries improved. Sadly they did not, with only 21 taking part, a drop of 7, however we are giving it another go this year. In another change, the event is now called the Junior Champion of Champions which opens the door should a girl win a Junior Championship. It is great to see that there are now a few girls who are getting close to achieving this.

2019

Due to the World Wide Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19), this tournament was unable to be played. 

2018

The 2018 event was played at Craigmillar Park Golf Club in March 2019 where Cameron Gallagher (Longniddry) won with a great three under par score of 67. He is seen in the photograph receiving the trophy from a representative from sponsor Caermount. Jack Noon (Musselburgh) was close behind on 69. Jamie Simpson (Bruntsfield Links GS) and Neil Canavan (Kilspindie) were third equal on 71. The handicap first prize went to Kiron Gribble (Melville) with a score of 79 – 15 = 64.
