As you might appreciate the Lothians Executive have been keen to at least hold some of their competitions this year despite most of these requiring to be cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
The Executive have agreed to move the Amateur Championship to later in the year and we thank Prestonfield GC for their continued support in allowing us the use of their course for this purpose.
It is proposed, subject to the restrictions being eased to allow this, to hold the Amateur Championship Qualifying on Sunday, 20 September 2020 at Prestonfield GC. Due to the time of year, we have required to review the format of the competition. The 36 Hole Qualifying will be restricted to 81 players with only 8 Qualifiers going forward to the matchplay. The Matchplay will take place at Prestonfield as follows, Quarter Finals - Friday, 25 September (Approx 3.30/4.00pm) Semi Finals - Sunday, 27 September (Approx 8.00am) and the Final on Sunday, 27, September (Approx 1.30pm) (Timings are subject to change and will be provided to those qualifying in more detail.)
Entries are now open for this competition, players should be aware, that if the competition is required to be cancelled due to the restrictions not being lifted in time, all entry fees will be returned. Please click here to enter
We look forward to a good field and an another competitive tournament.
