EuroPro Tour heads to Montrose

2014 04 Euro Pro Montrose 9

Scotland is preparing to welcome the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour for its second event of the season as it heads to Montrose Links for the Eagle Orchid Scottish Masters.


The tournament kicks off the ‘Scottish Swing’ on the tour as the Carrick and Royal Burgess prepare to host events on consecutive weeks in the middle of July before it returns at the start of September to play at Mark Hall, near Glasgow.

This week’s event at Montrose Links is the second time the tour has visited the historic course, having made a successful debut in September last year.

Among the field for the 54-hole event, which runs from April 29 until May 1, is former Amateur Champion Gary Wolstenholme, as well as brother Elliot and Zack Saltman, who are attached to Archerfield Links.

Spectator entry is free throughout the week if you fancy taking a trip along to watch, alternatively, if you can’t make it, the tournament is being filmed for a two-hour highlights show to be broadcast on Sky Sports on May 13.

Successful past winners


Neil Armour, chief executive officer of Eagle Orchid, said: “It is fantastic to be able to bring the Eagle Orchid Scottish Masters to Montrose again this year.

“I was very impressed by the course, the organisation and the warm welcome offered during the event last September, and the level of golf played was exceptional.

“To see Stuart Manley playing on the European Tour this season is a testament to the importance of development golf, and Oliver Farr proved our second successful winner when he gained his Challenge Tour card last season. I look forward to seeing who emerges victorious this time around.”
