We are delighted to announce the Staysure Tour, the newly re-branded Scottish Senior Open, will be hosted at Craigielaw from 14-16 September 2018.
The tournament will incorporate the popular Alliance format, with amateurs given the opportunity to play alongside the professional for the first two tournament rounds. A pro-am will also take place on Thursday, September 13.
Jonathan Porteous, our Director of Golf said: “The team here at Craigielaw are looking forward to welcoming such a prestigious event as the Staysure Tour.”
Staysure Tour’s David MacLaren commented “We are delighted to have secured an outstanding new venue in Craigielaw Golf Club for the Scottish Senior Open’s fourth visit to East Lothian in as many years.”
“East Lothian has few peers in the U.K. as a centre of golfing excellence, and Craigielaw, as a relative newcomer to the scene, has undoubtedly enhanced the landscape since opening for play in 2001.”
“The Wemyss family and all of the team at Craigielaw Golf Club deserve this opportunity to showcase their superb facilities when the top stars compete for one of the most prestigious titles on the Staysure Tour in September.”
East Lothian has been honoured to host the tournament over the past three seasons, with Archerfield hosting in 2015 and 2016 and Renaissance Club in 2017.
Councillor John McMillan, East Lothian Council’s spokesperson for Economic Development and Tourism, said: “I’m genuinely delighted that the Scottish Senior Open is returning to Scotland’s Golf Coast for the fourth successive year. Craigielaw Golf Club will further underline the region’s ability to deliver top class tournament venues.
“The quality of our golf is second to none and, despite being a relative newcomer to our wonderful portfolio, Craigielaw will encourage even more golfers to come and experience the game in East Lothian.”
