2019 HIGHLAND GOLF LINKS PRO AM TEES UP FOR NEW ERA
The prestigious Highland Golf Links Pro-Am tournament over three of Scotland’s finest links courses returns for 2019.
Some 328 players in 82 teams from across the UK, as well as from Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, France and the USA, will compete at Castle Stuart Golf Links, The Nairn Golf Club and the Championship Course at Royal Dornoch Golf Club.
The event, which is part of the Tartan Tour and is being sponsored by Tomatin, started in 2012 and entries have since grown considerably.
The three-day event also generates about £200,000 for the Highland economy in late-season business.
Stephen Bremner, Managing Director at Tomatin, said:
