Please see this message to Royal Burgess Members from their General Manager:-
We are delighted to advise members that we have been selected to co-host the Watson Cup, a new trophy to be contested bi-annually between the best young golfers in East Lothian and Edinburgh, and their counterparts in South Carolina. Five time Open Champion Tom Watson has put his name to the event, the first staging of which will be at Kiawah Island in October 2018, with Muirfield and Royal Burgess co-hosting the first return match in 2020. RBGS Honorary Member Bernard Gallacher has agreed to be the Honorary President on that occasion.
Both matches will be played in a Walker Cup style format over 2 days, with players from both the East Lothian Junior League and the Edinburgh Junior League joining forces.
Exact dates and timings will be announced nearer the time but this is another fantastic opportunity for raising the profile of RBGS and demonstrates once again, the high esteem in which our club is held.
Graham Callander General Manager 12th April 2018
