2018 Scottish amateur stroke-play goes 

to Gleneagles for first time

The Carrick Neill Scottish men’s open amateur stroke-play championship will break exciting new ground next year when it is staged at Gleneagles for the first time.
Scottish Golf is “thrilled” at the prospect of taking one of the most prestigious amateur championships in the sport to the iconic King’s Course in 2018.
The event, which boasts a formidable winners’ list since its inception in 1967, is regarded as the pinnacle men’s amateur stroke-play championship in Scotland, contested over 72 holes.
The King’s Course, the former host of the Bell’s Scottish Open on the European Tour and a venue with a rich tradition of hosting amateur events dating back to the 1920s, is sure to provide a magnificent test when the field gathers for the championship over a new date from August 27-29 next year.
With the five-star Perthshire estate staging the Solheim Cup in 2019 – only five years after hosting The Ryder Cup – and the inaugural European Golf Team Championships in 2018, the Carrick Neill Scottish men’s open amateur stroke-play adds to Gleneagles’ illustrious event history across the amateur and professional game.
