2018 in Scotland has been dedicated as the Year of Young People and it coincides with a summer where Scotland will once again welcome some of the world’s biggest golf events as part of a portfolio of events which spans the country.

The activity, which takes place at major golf events such as The 147th Open at Carnoustie and the Aberdeen Standard Investments Men’s and Ladies Scottish Opens throughout July, includes provision for ten youngsters to experience the thrill of playing alongside some of the biggest names in golf as well as the opportunity for a young person to caddy for Scottish golfer and former Ryder Cup player Stephen Gallacher gaining a once-in-a-lifetime behind-the-ropes experience.

The events will be broadcast into more than 600 million homes worldwide, generate more than 11,000 hours of broadcast coverage and deliver an economic impact to Scotland in excess of £70 million.

Paul Bush, Director of Events with VisitScotland, said: “I’m thrilled that the world-class golf events taking place across Scotland in 2018 are supporting Scotland’s Year of Young People. Golf in Scotland truly is a game for all and it is important that our golf events offer an exciting and welcoming environment for young people as we look to encourage more people into the game.”

Three time European Tour winner Stephen Gallacher said: “I am delighted to be able to support the Year of Young People in Scotland by offering one of my foundation members the opportunity to come inside the ropes and caddy for me during the Pro-Am of my national open. Helping to encourage and inspire Scotland’s next generation of golfers is something I’m extremely passionate about and I was delighted to give Cameron the chance to carry my bag and enjoy this experience”

Cameron Gallagher, member of the Stephen Gallacher Foundation said: “It was an amazing experience getting to caddy for Stephen during the Scottish Open Pro-Am. To be able to watch and learn how he goes about his job was so cool and it’s a day that I will never forget.”
