The LGA organises a number of high level championships, competitions and matches on behalf of the male golfers in the Lothians as well as organising the South East District Championship. The LGA is responsible for selecting teams to represent the Lothians in national competitions both at senior and junior level which is often the players ‘stepping stone’ to international selection.

The LGA also works closely with their affiliated clubs and societies in representing their interests at SGL.
