What is the Junior Skills Challenge?
Scottish Golf’s Junior Skills Challenge is an exciting event open to junior golfers across the country. Designed to develop the key skills of putting, chipping and driving, the Junior Skills Challenge will provide players with the chance to track their Regional and National rankings throughout the year and be in with a chance to win a place at our National Finals during the AIG Women’s Open.

Junior Skills Challenge Results:
All Clubs Invited

All scores must be uploaded on to the leaderboard by Sunday 17th July when the finalists will be selected. The top FIVE nationally ranked players in each of the specified age categories, in both genders, will be invited to take part in the Junior Skills Challenge Final at the AIG Women’s Open on Saturday 6st August.
