HELEN HOLM SCOTTISH WOMEN'S OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP

Good luck to the four P&K Ladies' County members who are playing in the Helen Holm Scottish Women's Open Championship this week.
The Helen Holm championship will take place from Tuesday 29 June to Thursday 1 July at Royal Troon Golf Club. The championship was due to be held in April, but had to be rescheduled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

All 103 competitors will play two qualifying rounds of stroke play on the Portland Course. The top 60 and ties will then progress to the final round of stroke play, which will also be on the Portland Course this year. Sadly, due to the revised dates, the final round could not be played on Royal Troon.

A strong home contingent has gathered at Troon to play the event. Joining them will be four of our Perth & Kinross Team Members:

Emily Aird   (Blairgowrie)
Katy Alexander   (Blairgowrie)
Megan Ashley   (Blairgowrie)
Kirsty Brodie   (Alyth)

SCOTTISH GOLF COVID-19 UPDATE - 24 JUNE 2021

Scottish Golf has issued a COVID-19 update in response to the COVID-19 statement made by the First Minister of Scotland on Tuesday 22 June.


The statement issued by Scottish Golf reads as follows:

"Following the latest COVID Update from the First Minister, Scottish Golf wishes to inform all clubs that our current COVID-19 Guidance remains unchanged. We do not anticipate any further changes in the Protection Level system until 19 July 2021."

"There has been an increase in enquiries regarding on-course furniture, i.e Rakes and Pins and we would take this opportunity to advise that our guidance (along with that of the other Home Nations) also remains unchanged at this time. These should remain out of use to limit the potential spread of COVID-19 and we do not foresee this position changing until we move to Level 0."

"Any club who has chosen to re-introduce rakes or permit the removal of pins, should ensure they have undertaken a full risk assessment and have checked with their local authority, health and safety advisors or insurance provider to be sure that they are in no way negating any public health liability cover they might have in place."

"The latest indication we have from the Scottish Government is that all local authority areas will move to Level 0 from 19 July 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep all clubs updated should anything change.

"Keep up to date on the latest COVID-19 Updates from Scottish Golf here."
