Scottish Womens Amateur Tour
Scotland has it’s own Ladies Golf Tour
Welcome to the new and exciting Scottish Womens Amateur Tour ( S.W.A.T. for short )!
9 x 36 hole tournaments with 2 order of merits (scratch and nett).
Top 6 Scratch and Nett scores play in the sponsored final at Cabot Highlands – Castle Stuart Links.
Although the tour will be based in Scotland, it’s open to all Ladies with a handicap of 9 or less.
17th & 18th April (Highlands) – Royal Dornoch Championship & Struie Courses
The Championship course often described as the best course never to hold the Open. Perhaps too short now, in the modern game, but a course that usually conquers the golfer rather than the other way around.
The Struie, aside from the opening and finishing holes, a flat course where straight drives and good course management will be your friend. Do not try and beat this course with your driver – you will lose. Plot wisely, as its a great course with hidden dangers!
1st & 2nd May (Fife) – Scotscraig Golf Club
Host of numerous SGU, LGA and R & A events over the years including Open Qualifying when The Open Championship comes to St Andrew’s. Scotscraig is only 15 minutes drive from the famous Old Course.
It’s a combination of links and parkland. It looks and feels like links for most of the course but is best described as ‘linksy’. It is never really parkland either as it holds onto part links on the holes that are a wee bit different.
19th & 20th May (Lothian) – Dalmahoy Championship East & Resort West Courses
The Scottish PGA championship was held here over the old layout of the Championship East Course.
The West Course is a wee beauty. Shorter, tighter but armed with wee bunkers that guard tricky greens.
16th & 17th June (Tayside) – Monifieth Medal & Ashludie Courses
Championship course has the first 6 holes running with railway on your right. A traditional links course which has a fair number of holes that require accuracy through the gorse lined fairways and avoid the large pines.
Ashludie is the shorter but has no fewer challenges. Underestimate this course at your peril and don’t think you’ll beat it with your driver.
6th & 7th July (Perthshire) – Murrayshall Championship Course
A fine test as it meanders between mature woodland. A feast of parkland with many Perthshire views on the side, served with generous fairways and big greens makes this a popular and forgiving course.
22nd & 23rd July (Ayrshire) – West Kilbride Golf Club
Hosts of the 2023 R&A Senior Home Internationals & 2025 Scottish Boys’ Open Championship
Links Course situated on the Ayrshire coast, with spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde to the beautiful island of Arran.
11th & 12th August (Grampian) – Montrose Links
Rugged and undulating (yet an easy walk), some deep bunkers, springy yet quick draining turf, bountiful gorse, sand dunes aplenty and fantastic greens. A number of the holes run alongside the rugged Angus coastline offering some stunning scenery.
1st & 2nd September (Fife) – Fairmont St Andrews Torrance & Kittocks
With views overlooking the historic Home of Golf and St Andrews Bay the 2 world-class courses, wind their way around 520 stunning acres of utterly breath-taking scenery.
The Torrance and Kittocks were host to Final Qualifying for the 150th Open, and the Torrance staged the DP World Tour from 2020 to 2022.
15th & 16th September (Tayside) – Strathmore Golf Centre
Generous fairways and rolling greens it is a challenge to low handicappers.
Final 22nd September (Highlands) – Cabot Highlands – Castle Stuart Links.
Surrounded by the breathtaking Scottish scenery, a rugged natural landscape hugging the shoreline of the Moray Firth.
Host to the Scottish Open in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2016.
