The new PING Scottish Open Series will help make our events even more attractive, accessible, and inclusive going forward.

The event will allow players the chance to sample some fantastic golf courses and entry for each includes hospitality before and after golf. All finalists will win a round at Trump International, Aberdeen and be treated to an overnight stay at the Village Hotel Aberdeen and gala dinner after the final.
