Press Release From PGA Scottish Region.
Nearly 100 Professionals have entered the second PGA Scotland Order of Merit event of the season, the Skycaddie Challenge at Rowallan Castle, being staged over 36 holes next Wednesday and Thursday, June 8 and 9.
The Colin Montgomerie-designed course will be hosting its first professional tournament, and it’s something that is being eagerly anticipated by head professional Ross Aitken.
“This is a great opportunity for us to showcase what we have here. I’m sure the players will be really impressed and I hope they will go back to their own clubs and recommend that their members give us a try,” said Ross.
Michael MacDougall, pictured, the PGA Scotland Regional Secretay, commented:“I’m sure our professionals will thoroughly enjoy the venue. We’ve been down a couple of times to look over it, and it has the potential to become one of the top courses in the country in the next few years. The number of entries we’ve had is a testament to the reputation that Rowallan has already gained.”
In addition to the prize-fund of £10,000 there is an added incentive on offer for the top performers during the tournament. Four spots in the inaugural “Paul Lawrie Invitational” at Deeside the following week have been kept in reserve for the top performers at Rowallan. The two leading players in the tournament and the two highest ranked players in the 2011 Order of Merit who have yet to gain a place in the tournament will receive an invitation to Deeside.
