Longniddry Golf Club stages 2019 Aberdeen Standard Investments Qualifier
Following the success of this year’s qualifier for the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open at Gullane, Longniddry Golf Club has been asked to stage the event again in 2019. The two-round event will take place on July 6th & 7th and will see four players secure spots in the $7 million Rolex Series event to be held at The Renaissance Club in East Lothian from 11-14th July.
The 2018 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.
