Longniddry Golf Club stages 2018 Aberdeen Standard Investments Qualifier
Longniddry Golf Club staged this year’s qualifier for the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open which took place from 12-15th July. The two-round event was held on July 7th & 8th and saw four players secure spots in the $7 million Rolex Series event at Gullane. The event was won by Duncan Stewart (Turnhouse) who tied with Conor O’Neill (Mearns Castle) on 132 (4 under) but won on the second play off hole to lift the trophy. Jamie McLearie (Deer Park) and Peter Whiteford (Linlithow) were joint third. Duncan & Jamie credited their success to having played the course regularly in the past, particularly when practising in Winter when the course is very playable. Many of the players complimented the condition of the course, with some describing it as “pristine”, “superb” and “very much worth a visit to play”.
The course was designed by Harry S Colt and is the first links course at the start of the East Lothian golf trail. The par 68 course is a good test for any golfer and is no push over with 8 par 4s measuring over 400 yards (365 m), many raised large greens and approaches that you would expect of a links layout.
