Grampian and Highland youngsters are being given unique opportunities to experience the magic of a major event during this week’s Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Castle Stuart which runs from 11-15 July.
The national junior golf programme ClubGolf will host a series of activities throughout the tournament, designed for juniors already involved in the ClubGolf programme as well as youngsters wanting to try golf for the first time.
Through EventScotland and the European Tour, ClubGolf is offering 150 complimentary day tickets on Wednesday 11 July for adults who sign up three or more youngsters for the ‘ClubGolf at The Castle’ activity. These children will receive a VIP Pass on entering.
The VIP offer is part of a major ClubGolf at The Castle push throughout the week of the Scottish Open to give youngsters a positive experience of golf and encourage more juniors to give the game a go.
Coaching will be available throughout the week in ClubGolf’s activity zone, located alongside the Scottish Golf Union stand in the tented village.
ClubGolf will also be organising a unique VIP experience, on Wednesday 11 July, for some 500 of the region’s children who will get exclusive access to the ClubGolf grandstand overlooking the players’ practice ground, receive specialist coaching from top coaches, take part in skills challenges, and a team challenge with the chance to be crowned ‘Kings and Queens’ of the Castle.
