The Championship is regarded as one of the most prestigious in the game. With a long history stretching back to 1922, when the Old Course hosted the inaugural event, the Scottish Amateur Championship has been taken to some of the world's most famous golfing venues, including Royal Troon, Muirfield, Prestwick, Carnoustie, Nairn and Western Gailes.

The championship's most notable achievement came in the 1960s, when the legendary Ronnie Shade took five consecutive titles between 1963-67. Colin Montgomerie won the title in 1987 at the end of his amateur career, while Aberdonian David Law became the first player to win the Boys' and Men's match play titles in the same year with victory at Royal Troon in 2009, before winning again two years later. The event spans a full week, with a field of 256 players representing more than 130 different clubs across Scotland. Robert MacIntyre became the first left-hander in living memory to win the event at Muirfield in 2105.

Venue: Royal Aberdeen
A renowned links venue that played host to the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in 2014. The course will also stage The Amateur Championship in 2018, along with neighbouring Murcar Links.
