PGA Pro Championship at Dundonald Links

Looking for something to do this week?
Well, the £78,000 Glenmuir PGA Professional Championship takes place at Dundonald Links in Ayrshire, the first time it has been staged in Scotland since 2003.
The top competition for club professionals in the UK carries a first prize of £10,000 while places are also up for grabs in the PGA Cup team, this year's match against the Americans being played at The Carrick on Loch Lomond in September.
The Dundonalod Links course is a magnificent addition to the golf portfolio of the west of Scotland and comes a few weeks ahead of The Open Championship returning to Troon.
Nearly 160 of the best players from across Britain and Ireland will battle it out over 72 holes at Dundonald Links for the PGA's flagship event which is being defended by West Berkshire's Paul Simpson.
An added incentive for the field is one of the 10 places available for the Great Britain & Ireland PGA Cup team to face America later in the year at The Carrick on Loch Lomond.
Guy Redford, director of golf operations at the spectacular Dundonald Links near Troon in Ayrshire, is predicting an exciting week's golf which he believes will favour the brave and bold.
"It's a great risk and reward course and good players from tee to green will be rewarded on this course," said Redford.
