Junior Flag Championship

increasing the number of juniors

What is the Scottish Junior Flag Championship?

The Scottish Junior Flag Championship is a brand new event providing young golfers with fantastic playing opportunities in the early stages of their development.

Staged in partnership with the Paul Lawrie Foundation, Stephen Gallacher Foundation and The Junior Flag Challenge, the Championship is a series of regional events open to beginner level juniors, under the age of 12 and with no handicap. Our aim is to introduce young players to competitive golf in a fun and relaxed environment through a ‘Flag Competition’ format.

To find out more information about the Scottish Junior Flag Championship, check out the below video with Scott Knowles from the Stephen Gallacher Foundation.

“The benefits the Clubs are going to see is they’re going to have new juniors coming to their golf club – kids who’ve never ever played golf.”

Running a Flag Event Qualifier at your Club

When your club registers for one of the Regional events, you will be provided with a competition pack that gives you the resources to stage a Flag Event for eligible juniors at your own club. Clubs can run their own qualifying event where the top four players will receive an invitation to represent your club at the Regional event you registered for. The Regional events will be hosted by one of our three partners.

The top team from each Regional event will earn a place in the Grand Final with the opportunity to be crowned Scottish Junior Flag Champions!

Why should our Club take part?

If your Club is looking to increase the number of juniors progressing to competition play, obtaining a handicap and being retained as members, then our Flag Events are perfect for you! They provide a great opportunity for juniors to develop their game on the course in a fun and relaxed format while introducing them to scoring, etiquette and other aspects of the game. In turn, they are a great way of engaging parents and creating a buzz at your club on the day of the event.

After registering for the Scottish Junior Flag Championship, your club will receive an event pack, enabling you to run your in-house qualifying event as well as other Flag Events throughout the season as a great addition to your junior programme.
