Lothians Golf Association

Lothians Handicap Stableford Championship

The Event

This event started as a stroke play championship in 2018 but has been changed to stableford this year 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.  

More detailed information about the trophies and the winners, including the runners-up, venues and scores was included in a hand-out enclosed with a Centenary brochure at the 2021 event.  This can be seen if you click here.
