Scottish Golf Academy spots up for grabs

YOUNG Scottish golfers who believe they have the talent to go all the way to the top of the ladder are being given the chance to earn places on the country's Academy programme.

Nominations for the 2010-11 Scottish Golf Academy programme, run by the Scottish Golf Union and Scottish Ladies Golf Association, are open to golfers under the age of 15 on 1 January 2011 with a handicap of ten or under for boys and a handicap of 20 or under for girls.

"The Academy has been a great success over the last five years with a number of national champions coming through the programme," said Steve Paulding, performance manager for Scottish Golf.

"We are looking for players with the potential to compete at the highest level of the game, from success at international level in the amateur game through to winning on the main professional tours worldwide.

"The recent successes of players such as Krystle Caithness and Richie Ramsay on the leading professional Tours can provide inspiration to young Scots coming through the Academy."
