Scottish Schools Golf Association announce new sponsors - the TEACHERS!
By COLIN FARQUHARSON
The Scottish Schools Golf Association has announced a new sponsorship from an unexpected course - the teachers union, NASUWT! This new sponsorship means that the association will be able to run the Scottish schoolboys and schoolgirls championships on Monday, June 12 at Murrayshall House Hotel and Golf courses, near Perth and the annual fixture with English Schools at Kilmarnock Barassie on Monday, September 11.
The NASUWT already sponsor the English and Welsh schools associations and this new partnership was an obvious extension of their sponsorships.
Scottish schools golf organisers acknowledge the tremendous help they have received from the Paul Lawrie Foundation over the last nine years. They are also grateful to the new management at Murrayshall for continuing the support of the championships at their courses.
The championships this year return to the one-day format where all competitors will play one round over the Murrayshall course and one round of the Lynedoch course.
The Scotland Schools team of 12 boys and six girls for the international against England will be selected in the middle of August.
