Trump International Golf Links

Recent European Tour winner David Law will play in the inaugural Aberdeen Golf Links Pro-Am, it has been announced.

The Aberdonian, who won the Vic Open last week, is expected to be one of the star names teeing it up in the event, which takes place across three of the north-east of Scotland’s best courses – Royal Aberdeen, Trump International and Cruden Bay – from May 1-3, 2019.

Entries are currently open for the event, which will consist of 78 teams of three amateurs and one professional with rounds on each of the three courses across the three days of competition.

There will be mix of club professionals and tour professionals, like Law, competing in the event. The PGA will be running the tournament and will allocate a PGA professional to each team – although teams are more than welcome to bring their own team professional.

The professionals will be competing for a prize fund of £40,000, while the Pro-Am team competition is a 54-hole stableford with the two best scores counting on each hole.

There will be prizes for the top three teams along with three nearest the pin prizes each day.

• Golf for three amateurs and one professional at Royal Aberdeen, Cruden Bay & Trump International;

• Bacon rolls & coffee served each morning at each golf course;
