Murrayshall, the estate home to two golf courses in Perthshire, will be the only Scottish venue for the Faldo Elite Tour in June. 

The tour will travel across the UK and USA, with the Perthshire venue ready to host some stars of the future. The 18-hole event will take place on Tuesday 6 June over the Murrayshall Championship course, with participants including the best amateur players who are 25-years-old or under.

Notable Faldo Series alumni include major winners Rory McIlroy and Danny Willett, plus former Ladies Scottish Open champion Carly Booth.

Part of the global Faldo Series for boys and girls, the Elite Tour provides a pathway for top ranked male players to become professional golfers and gain exemptions for the DP World and Challenge Tour in 2024. 

Sir Nick Faldo, the tour’s chief said: “Bringing elite young amateur golfers to play in Scotland where I won my three Open Championships (Muirfield in 1987 & 1992 and St Andrews in 1990) was a must for me, because it provides challenges that any young golfer looking to become a top professional will need to take on and I’m sure that Murrayshall will prove one of the most interesting contests of the Elite Tour.”

Emma Lester, Golf Events Manager at the Perthshire venue said: “Being chosen as the Scottish venue to stage a Faldo Elite Tour event this year is a great honour for Murrayshall and we’re really looking forward to hosting the talented youngsters here.  

“Murrayshall has a proud history of supporting junior golf and we’ll also be hosting the Scottish Golf U16 Scottish Boys tournament next year as part of our drive to see more young players in Scotland progress in the game,” she added.
