Faldo Series Scotland heads for Bruntsfield Links

An event won by Rory McIlroy as he was cutting his golfing teeth is to be held in Edinburgh for the first time later this year.

The 2018 Faldo Series Scotland Championship will be hosted at Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society on August 6-8, when 120 juniors will do battle at the historic Capital venue.

“Bruntsfield is delighted to be selected to host the 2018 Faldo Series Scottish qualifier,” said club captain Mike Smith. “The club has been investing in junior golf in recent years.

“We have introduced a new mini junior category for 7-11 year olds in addition to the regular 12-17 category where each junior receives a free 30-minute lesson from our PGA professionals.

“We are eager to build on this initiative by hosting the Faldo Series qualifier and our team of staff and members look forward to welcoming more than 100 enthusiastic junior golfers in August.”

The five age category winners – three boys and two girls – at Bruntsfield will be invited to participate in The Faldo Series European Grand Final.

“Young golfers in the UK have benefitted from the experience of playing in the Faldo Series since its launch in 1996,” said the tournament host.
