R&A 9-Hole Championship

R&A 9-Hole Championship

In conjunction with The R&A and following the success of the inaugural 2017 event we are delighted to confirm that the 9 Hole Championship will take place again in 2018.

How do I qualify for the Scottish National 9-Hole Final?

We would encourage all affiliated clubs in Scotland to schedule a 9 hole stableford qualifying event played in pairs (standalone fixture or attached to an existing 9 hole qualifying event) between January and the closing date. (28 May 2018 at noon).

This free-to-enter competition is open to all male and female club members (pairs may include one player under the age of 18) holding a CONGU Competition Handicap. The top qualifying pair from each club will progress through to the National Final at Milnathort Golf Club, on Friday 15 June. 

How do I qualify for the R&A 9-Hole Championship?

The top four pairs from the National Final will qualify for the Grand Final at Carnoustie on Saturday 14 July – just days before the 147th Open Championship begins.

The R&A and Scottish Golf firmly believe 9-hole golf will play a prominent part in our sport’s future and therefore urge your club to join us by participating in this exciting event.

Does your club need a 9-hole Standard Scratch Score?

If your course does not yet have an official 9 hole standard scratch rating and you wish to take part, please contact us as soon as possible to have this carried out.
