THE PRIMARY AIM IS FOR THE SOUTH OF SCOTLAND EXECUTIVE TO ENGAGE WITH ITS MEMBERS CLUBS.THE INCOME GENERATED WILL GO TOWARDS THE RESTRUCTURING OF GOLF DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA. WITH A PARTICULAR FOCUS ON REGENERATING JUNIOR PROGRAMMES ACROSS DUMFRIES & GALLOWAY

Dear Golfers, Hopefully, you are all enjoying the golf season. We would like to take this opportunity to explain a little more about the creation of the South of Scotland Winter Alliance. We were recently shocked to find out about the lack of opportunities for the next generation of junior golfers in our area, to better develop and evolve their skills. The main contributors to the lack of development are – financial funding, coaching provisions, and volunteers. Now we enter our second year James Erskine has opted to offer an additional 3 courses on the Alliance rota with the addition of Stranraer & Dumfries & Galloway GC with the grand finale being played at Dundonald Links. James continues to assist the South of Scotland Executive on all initiatives to purely promote the further advancement of Junior Golf in our regions!! He felt that the creation of a Winter Alliance would allow the executive to connect to its membership and affiliated clubs while generating some essential income, allowing junior programmes to advance into a sustainable expansion.  The future objective for the South Executive is to be able to assist all local clubs & aspiring young players with development opportunities which are currently lacking or not available What we are offering as a solution to assist the initiative is: With your support we have on offer 100 memberships available in year one at £150 per player.  Each event has a separate £5 entry payable via each club’s booking platform, which will be paid out in sweep prizes on the day.  Prize funds for Scratch, Handicap/Stableford, Senior and Junior will be in place with the best 3 scores out of 6 counting for the OOM prize pot of £5000. This will be a great opportunity to play some of the region’s top courses, meet old and new friends from across the area. It is open to any male member of a South of Scotland club, Any Professional golfer associated to a South of Scotland club and any Junior golfer with a handicap of 12 and below.
