Lothians Golf Association

Glencorse G C

Lothians Handicap Stableford Championship

for the McManus Family Trophy

To be played at Glencorse Golf Club on Sunday, 25th August 2024

The Event

This event started as a stroke play championship in 2018 but was changed to stableford in 2022 to try and encourage more entries. The tournament was introduced in response to feedback we got from our clubs that we do not do enough for the middle and higher range players. This is an 18 hole event with an overall prize for the best nett score and also vouchers for the leading nett scores in 3 handicap ranges running from 5 to 28. 

We are indebted to the McManus family for donating a trophy for the event. Joe McManus, a past captain and champion (12 times) of Uphall GC, is a Lothians stalwart having played for our team and competed in our Championships over many years. Now making a name for himself on the Scottish Seniors amateur circuit he still has time to help out on our Club Services committee where the idea for this event emanated. 

The history of the event and a list of winners can be seen by clicking the 'History' heading at the bottom of the list on the left hand side of this page.


Pumpherston Golf Club was presented in wonderful condition for the last open event of the season on the Lothians calendar. Scoring an outstanding 39 Points Turnhouse's Mark Cottle won by 3 points from three Pumpherston players, John McKale, Michael Ennis and Bryan Stewart. It is very disappointing that this event, now in it's 6th year, is still not attracting many entries (41 this year) despite being aimed at the mid handicap players and with prize vouchers in 3 handicap ranges. (See below) Any suggestions to make it more attractive would be appreciated.
