Aspirations for amateur golf

Susan Simpson, Assistant Director – Amateur Events, said, “We have a full season of men’s, women’s, boys’ and girls’ championships this year. We are really pleased to offer a new, easy to use system of online entries and we hope that our players benefit from a much smoother process.”

Ed Johnson, Assistant Director – Amateur Championships, added, “The new system really speeds up the process for entrants, who will now know very quickly if their entry has been accepted.

“Bringing the two organisations together has allowed us to create a platform to develop our aspirations for amateur golf across both the men’s and women’s game.”
