The Scottish Boys Under-16s Championship was first staged in 1983 and has become a key event in the Scottish junior golf circuit. Now attracting some of the best young players from countries all over the world, some prominent amateurs have won the event in the past, including GB&I Walker Cup stars David Patrick (1991) and David Inglis (1997 & 1998).

Fifer Peter Whiteford, now playing his trade on the European Tour, won the title in 1996, while Grant Forrest, the 2009 winner, went onto win both the Scottish Boys and Scottish Amateur titles and play in the 2015 Walker Cup. Recent overseas winners have included Switzerland's Remo Fueg and Sweden's Oskar Bergqvist.
