Scottish Golf Pairs Challenge
The Scottish Golf Pairs Challenge gives golfers of all abilities the opportunity to experience golf in Angus and East Perthshire. The area is steeped in the history of the game, after all James Braid, five times Open winner had a hand in designing three of the five courses to be played during the week. The area is not only rich in the history of golf but boasts of great visitor attractions close by such as Scone Palace, once the crowning place of the Kings of Scotland and Glamis Castle, the childhood home of The Queen Mother. The home of golf, St Andrews and Carnoustie with the famous Barry Burn are only a short drive away.

The Scottish Golf Pairs Challenge was born out of the now established and very successful Scottish Mixed Foursomes Golf Week held every year in early July. The Scottish Golf Pairs Challenge provides a different flavour of golf. Played over five fantastic courses, the most notable being Blairgowrie Rosemount, where Greg Norman won his first European Tour event in 1977. The Alyth and Kirriemuir courses, both designed by James Braid are heathland, lined with trees and broom. Strathmore and Glenisla are both new courses opened in 1995 and 1997 respectively are parkland courses and provide the golfer with a true test of golfing ability.
The week will have first-class golf and good fun, meeting up with old friends and meeting new ones and experiencing great hospitality at the golf clubs. From registration to prize giving, you are assured of 5 days of golfing relaxation and fun in warm and friendly surroundings.
