This Championship is jointly run by the SGU and SLGA for leading under 14 male and female golfers. First contested in 2001, the event is the youngest national age group championship 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, one of the rising stars of the Scottish amateur game, 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 Stirlingshire venue was designed by the famous James Braid and has become nationally renowned not only for its challenging layout and high quality condition, but also for its outstanding natural beauty.
