This Championship is for leading under 14 male and female golfers, first contested in 2001, and is the youngest national age group event in Scotland, which also features an U12 category within.
The event has been greatly supported by the Loretto School Golf Academy who have been sponsors since 2004 and attracts talented young golfers from across the UK. Bradley Neil, the former Amateur champion, won back-back titles in 2009-10. Having started its life as an 18-hole event, the championship was extended to 36 holes in 2012 with an expanded field size.
The Loretto Golf Academy, established in 2002, is unique amongst independent boarding and day schools in the United Kingdom. It offers pupils an exceptional opportunity to develop their sporting talent in tandem with a first-class, all-round education for boys and girls up to the age of 18. The golf school operates from the School's state-of-the-art practice facilities and local golf courses in East Lothian.

On behalf of our sponsors, we would like to invite competitors and their parents/guardians to a tour of the superb new Indoor Centre facilities at the Loretto School Golf Academy in Musselburgh, located just a few miles from this year’s championship host venue at Craigielaw. The new Indoor Centre, which opened recently, is one of the leading facilities in the UK, featuring a state-of-the-art short game practice area, including chipping, pitching bunker play and putting, as well as two designated teaching studios with the latest video analysis equipment.
The tours will take place during the practice day on Sunday 7 August, with four time slots to choose from, while presentations about Loretto School’s Golf Academy will also be hosted at Craigielaw Golf Club during the championship on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 August.
