NAIRN Dunbar Golf Club is preparing to host the Scottish Women’s Amateur Championship as the club prepares to celebrate its 125th anniversary on Friday.

The top 78 amateur players in the country will compete for the title at Nairn Dunbar Golf Club between Friday and Sunday.

Golfers will play 36 holes on the first day, with the official practice day being held on the day prior to the start of the Championship. After 36 holes, the leading 16 competitors returning the lowest gross scores, will progress to the Championship match play stages.

The following 16 competitors returning the next lowest gross scores will progress to the Clark Rosebowl match play stages.

It will be the first time that Nairn Dunbar Golf Club will have hosted the Scottish Women’s Amateur Championship since 1999, when the club marked its 100th anniversary.

Club captain Hazel Clark says it is a huge honour for Nairn Dunbar Golf Club to be hosting the Scottish Women’s Amateur Championship.

"We are absolutely delighted to host the 2024 Scottish Women's Amateur Championship at Nairn Dunbar Golf Club. The last time we hosted this event was in 1999, which was our 100-year anniversary as a club. We are very privileged to host yet again in another special year for us - our 125th anniversary!

“On May 24, 1899, which incidentally was a public holiday in celebration of Queen Victoria's 80th birthday, the new golf course was officially declared open by Lady Dunbar of Boath at 11am.

“How very fitting it is that, on the very same day 125 years later, competitors will tee off in the first round of this historic championship.

“We wish all competitors good luck and extend a warm welcome to everyone involved. "
