NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE AZALEA GROUPFormer Ryder Cup captains Sam Torrance and Ian Woosnam will be leading the charge to strip Glenn Ralph of his Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scottish Senior Open title this weekend – but it’s not just the pros who will be getting into the swing of things at Fairmont St Andrews.

While the golfing elite of the over-50s will be battling it out on the five-star resort’s Torrance course, hundreds of children will have the opportunity to get their first taste of golf thanks to International Golf Development.
The company will be providing a feast of golf with its Start New At Golf (SNAG) course and interactive golf zone – and adults can join in too.
The SNAG system provides the perfect introduction to golf, using just two clubs – the roller and the launcher – to build up skills and confidence before moving on to the full game.
Charles Head, general manager of Fairmont St Andrews, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming a lot of golf fans to the resort this week and hopefully introducing some newcomers to the game too.
“The SNAG course and interactive golf zone have proven very popular at other Senior Tour events and will make a wonderful addition to our facilities for the weekend.
“Hopefully a lot of local families will be able to come along to enjoy the golf, try the game for themselves and have a great day out.”
The Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scottish Senior Open takes place from August 20-22 at Fairmont St Andrews on the recently renovated Torrance course.
The course has benefited from significant improvements following a recent £17m redevelopment of the luxury resort which also included extensive work on its second 18-hole lay-out – the Kittocks course – lavish spa complex and five-star hotel.
