The Scottish Left-handed Championships has now become a popular annual competition, and this year will be held at the Muir of Ord.
The amateur competition is being held on Sunday June 17 and is open to all left-handed golfers across Scotland.
Club Captain Hamish Milne commented: “Newtonmore ran it for fair length of time. I am not sure how long it’s had it but it’s been in the regions of 20 years. The numbers of players were falling so they offered it to us and we were more than delighted to take it.
“We have quite a number of left-handed players in Muir of Ord and with our recent win in the Scottish Golf Club of the Year awards, this was the perfect opportunity for us to hit the headlines and push the club on and attract more players into the club”.
The event is for naturally left-handed male players.
Club manager, John Forbes said: “It’s hard to know how many people will take part as we are still taking in entries but we are hoping to have good numbers; we are probably looking at around 80 people playing”.
So if any of left-handed readers fancy having a tilt at glory, here where you need to go.
