A Glasgow-based golf club is excited to welcome the country’s best young talent to its course with an all-new sponsor-backed junior event. 

Pollok Golf Club, in the south side of the city, has revealed details of the Pollok Junior Masters, supported by ProDreamUSA, a Scottish-based golf-specific scholarship consultancy for junior golfers.
