Disability Open championship at Scotscraig in September

The Scottish Disability Golf Partnership, which has just been awarded its full registered Scottish charity status, has announced that it will host a second Pan-Disability Open Golf Championship next year.
The SDGP, which was the first group in the United Kingdom to organise a Pan-Disability Open GolfChampionship, has announced that in 2010 it will once again be hosted in Scotland.
It will be played over three days at the prestigious Scotscraig Golf Club, Tayport in Fife, an Open qualifying standard golf course and the 13th oldest golf club in the world.
The event will be played in early September and will consist of a practice round and two days of golf for the championship players.
Jim Gales, chairman of the SDGP, said: "We are delighted to be able to host our Open at such a high profile golf course and look forward to welcoming golfers from around the world. In 2008 we had over 30 golfers from more than seven countries and in 2010, with our profile being even higher, we are anticipating more entries, which will be great for the event and promotion of disabled golf inScotland."
In addition to the three-day Open in September, the group will host an inaugural Scottish championship, along with two to three training days and over 20 single-day competitions.
