The main trophy is named after Tom Lehman, who was reigning Open champion when the event came to Royal Troon in 1997.

For those just starting out, there are a number of other fun events with prizes to be won, including the ‘Drive to the Open Ayrshire Schools Street Golf Final’ and the Tom Lehman Flag Competition, which will be held over Troon Fullarton, making this one of the biggest junior golf events to be held in Scotland this year.

In total, there will be over £1,000 worth of prizes to be won across all of the events. And that’s not all. The day will be jam-packed with other activities for everyone including a Tiger Chip competition, putting competition, a barbecue provided by Buzzworks, and inflatable driving bays hosted by Lynx Golf.

On top of that, parents of all competitors will also receive a voucher offering a 50% discount on all food purchased at Buzzworks’ Troon venues Scott’s and Lido on the day.
