ROYAL BRITISH SCOTLAND SILVER POPPY GOLF COMPETITION 2019

The competition will be held on the New Course, St Andrews on Friday 3 May.

Following the success of 2018, the 2019 competition will again be open  to members of the Armed Forces Community and teams of three are being sought for the 36 tee off times (limit 108 players, playing in groups of 3) that have been granted.

The following competitions will take place simultaneously with 1 card being applicable to all of the competitions.  2 competitions are decided on stroke-play, the other 3 on the Stableford Scoring System as listed below.  The premier competition is the “Silver Poppy Team” competition. All competitions are contested over 18 holes.

The entry fee and starter fee for 2019 will be combined and the cost per competitor will be £60, as per 2018 but still represents a substantial saving exclusively offered to Legion Scotland.

The presentation of the trophies will be held at the St Andrews Links Golf Club.  The trophies may be held by the Branch/Association/Group of the individual winner, but remain the property of Legion Scotland.

Entries: Payment of £60 each entry should be returned to Liz Kyle, Event Support, Legion Scotland, New Haig House, Logie Green Road, Edinburgh, EH7 4HQ no later than Friday 19 April 2019.  Personal and business cheques are welcome and cash in person only.  Card payments may be made by calling 0131 550 1583 or email: l.kyle@legionscotland.org.uk

Meal Service:  The Golf Club where the presentation of trophies will be held is also offering a 3-course meal. Dress rules apply. Details on this offer will be provided with your tee-off times.

There are a number of single rooms, complete with bedding, available for Officers. A charge of £15, to be paid in advance, is required to cover the cost of the evening. The dress for this reunion is suit/Blazer, Regimental Tie. Do not come casually dressed.
