Michael Bradfield who trained at Elie and recently joined The Dutch Club near Amsterdam has won the 2019 PGA Assistant Professional Award.
In recognition of his achievement, Bradfield collected the Whitcombe Cox Trophy and a cheque for £3,500 from Michael Creighton, Titleist brand director, and PGA captain Peter Hanna at the Association’s annual Graduation Ceremony held at the University of Birmingham.
Entries are invited for the 2019 Elie and Earlsferry Links Championships to be played over the Elie Links on Saturday 17 August.
To give the country’s top amateurs an opportunity to play in this prestigious amateur scratch golf event (first played in 1955) we have moved the date, in agreement with Scottish Golf, to avoid any conflict with alternative open competitions.
With an attractive first prize of £150 for the Gold Medal winner, the Links Championship has been won in the past by Walker Cup players, Scottish Internationalists, County players and the best golfers in the country. At that time of year the course plays true to its classic links nature and is always in excellent condition – a good, competitive day is guaranteed to all.
In addition to the main, scratch competition there is also a handicap alternative for the Silver Medal for golfers with a handicap limit of 12.
Entries will be taken on a first-come-first-served basis. For further details and entry forms please contact:
In the latest edition of the National Club Golfer Magazine, Golf House Club Elie has been ranked 27th best golf course in Scotland and the 5th best in Fife – an improvement from 36th place on the last survey.
The rankings are based on ten criteria covering the condition, playability and challenge presented by the course.
Commenting on the awards, the Club Captain Kenneth Garland said that Scotland and Fife have many of the best courses in the world and this is just recognition of the year-round condition in which Elie is presented. The course staff are to be congratulated.
Elie welcomes Visitors who can enjoy special Winter Rates at this time of year.
