The future stars of Scottish golf will take to the fairways of Gleneagles this Sunday when the resort’s famous Queen’s Course hosts the final of the 2009 Dunfermline Building Society Junior Masters.
With more than 2,500 youngsters taking part this year, the Junior Masters is the country’s biggest participation golf event for boys and girls and over the last decade the event has seen young stars such as Lloyd Saltman and Carly Booth taking their first steps on the big stage.
Following four regional finals this summer, the leading fifty boys and thirty girls will line-up on Sunday, with representation from clubs as far afield as Moray in the Highlands to Kelso in the Borders. As the stableford points system is being used for the event’s format, players of all levels are able to take part with a handicap range from three to 36.
With Gleneagles hosting the 2014 Ryder Cup in just under five years time, the Dunfermline Building Society Junior Masters provides youngsters in Scotland with a fantastic opportunity to experience playing in a high profile event at one of the world’s most famous venues.
“The Junior Masters is a fantastic event as it allows boys and girls of all golfing abilities to play alongside each other. Any junior club member under the age of sixteen with a handicap can compete and we’ve seen some great young players make a name for themselves since this event began ten years ago.” explains the SGU’s Chief Executive Hamish Grey.
“Through clubgolf, Scotland’s national junior golf programme, the number of young golfers has grown significantly and more than 38,000 primary five children were introduced to golf at school this year. The Junior Masters is the first step on the competitive ladder for many of these youngsters and it’s great to stage the Final at Gleneagles, who do so much to support junior golf in Scotland.” he added.
The event is part of Dunfermline Building Society’s three-year sponsorship of amateur golf in Scotland in addition to the Junior Club of the Year Awards, won earlier this year by Ranfurly Castle. The Society’s Fairway Savers account has also raised significant funds for clubs across Scotland.
The action gets underway on the Queen’s Course at 8.30am on Sunday, with free admission for parents, families and spectators. To keep up-to-date with scoring from the Final, please visit
