Euro Junior Cup at three Fife courses,

Charleton, Crail, Ladybank July 29-31

Perhaps the most notable international event the International Junior Golf Tour competes in each year is the Euro Junior Golf Cup, formerly known as the World Junior Golf Cup.
Players will travel to Fife and compete on three challenging links and parkland style courses, ultimately providing the opportunity to make some history of their own at the home of golf. Developed in 1998, juniors from three countries - the IJGT's Team USA, Canadian Junior Golf Association's Team Canada, and the Fife Golf Union's Team Scotland - play in a Triangular Cup match-play format for the John Clark Trophy
The competition courses are:
Charleton Golf Club. Set in stunning parkland with spectacular panoramic views over the Firth of Forth, is acclaimed to be the most attractive golf course in Fife. Proving to be a challenge to ones short game Charleton is most known for its difficult greens.
Crail Golf Club (Craighead Links). One of the world's oldest golf clubs, Crail Golfing Society was founded in February 1786 and initially comprised membership of 11 local golfers. Craighead Links has panoramic seascape and stunning country views. Crail poses a testing but fair challenge, however be warned - there are hungry bunkers aplenty. No two consecutive holes face the same direction and with constantly changing conditions, there is enough of a variety of shots to test any golfer’s ability.
Ladybank Golf Club. A course of championship status (Par 71) set among heather, pine trees and silver birch. The course definition may have changed dramatically in the intervening one hundred years but its character remains intact. If you stray off line expect to be punished for your sins. Ladybank is also well acclaimed due to their involvement with many prestigious events.
The event will run from July 29 to 31.
