Arnold Clark Tartan Tour swings into 2022 with impressive schedule

11/01/2022

The 2022 Arnold Clark PGA in Scotland Tartan Tour will swing into action in April with an impressive schedule featuring established favourites and some exciting additions, including a new, season-ending Tour Championship.

The circuit’s flagship, The Loch Lomond Whiskies Scottish PGA Championship, headlines the diary and will break fresh ground when it is staged at West Kilbride for the first time from August 30-September 2

Graham Fox, a native of the Ayrshire town, will defend the title in his own backyard having won the national championship in thrilling fashion at Deer Park in 2021.

The Northern Open, one of Scotland’s most cherished professional tournaments, will remain at Portlethen for a second year while it will be given added lustre as part of The PGA’s new Open Series; an innovative programme of seven 36-hole, £20,000 events encompassing each PGA region in GB&I.

An additional incentive for the domestic campaigners will be the Arnold Clark Tour Championship at Gleneagles in October. The top-10 players from the Order of Merit will be invited to contest this end of year shoot-out.

The schedule will also be bolstered by the new Old Course Hotel 54-hole Pro-Am which will be played at The Duke’s Course, Kingsbarns and Dumbarnie Links from September 21-23.

Two more three-day Pro-Ams - The Aberdeen Golf Links 54-hole Pro-Am at Royal Aberdeen, Trump International and Cruden Bay from April 27-29 and The Highland Golf Links 54-hole Pro-Am at Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart and Nairn from October 3-5 – will again provide alluring dates in the diary.

A series of 36-hole events will include popular perennials such as the Deer Park Masterss (August 2-3) and the Kerr Investments Pro-Am at Dumfries & Galloway (August 20-21). 

The Travelling the Fairways Pro-Am at Dumbarnie Links (June 27-28) will be staged again while a trip to Murrayshall Hotel and Golf Course (July 28-29) has been added to the list of 2022 venues. Two-day stop-offs at Stirling (May 11-12), Balmore (July 5-6) and Strathmore Golf Centre (July 19-20) burnish an impressive Order of Merit calendar.

The Carnegie Invitational, another staple of the Tartan Tour, will be staged at Skibo Castle from September 13-14 while 18, one-day Pro-Ams offer further competitive outings across the country.

On the Young Professionals’ front, the Scottish Young Professionals’ Championship, won by Dominic Bradburn last season, will be staged at Haddington Golf Club for the third year in a row from June 21-23. Royal Dornoch will again host the long-running Sandy Pipey Young Masters from September 19-20.

Commenting on the launch of the 2022 Arnold Clark Tartan Tour schedule, PGA in Scotland manager David Longmuir said: “We are very pleased to present members with our 2022 schedule of tournaments and events.

"Our main aim was to create an aspirational schedule which offers a variety of playing opportunities for members to enjoy and we hope that everyone finds something to suit their ambitions for the year. 

"You will notice that we have been able to introduce some new venues and formats into the calendar, to complement our historic and longstanding championships, and we are grateful to our existing sponsors, partners and venue hosts who have continued to support the PGA in Scotland, and to those who have come on board this year.
