Scotland is set to host the International Pairs tournament in 2003 which has proved such a big hit over the last four years at venues in the Republic of Ireland.
Visit Scotland, combined with the spectacular St Andrews Bay hotel and golf course, will stage the finals next October.
Ross Honey, founder of the event says: "Thousands of golfers across the UK will be able to enjoy the facilities at the Home of Golf, which overlooks the ancient town of St Andrews. VisitScotland have helped secure the future of the International Pairs north of the border.
The sponsors’ Neen Kelly added: "Scotland is looking forward to reaping the benefits of hosting the International Pairs. It has built up a reputation in a relatively short time for enabling thousands of golfers to enjoy competition at the very highest level and enjoy the golfing experience of playing somewhere special."
Winners at club level will be able to compete at some of Scotland’s most prestigious courses for a chance to play in the final.
"For those who have never played golf in Scotland we hope it will be an experience they will treasure and want to repeat."
St Andrews Bay is a world class golf facility. It sits on a breath-taking cliff-top location overlooking the legendary ‘Old grey Toon’.
Enter this unique tournament and after just two rounds of golf you could be competing over the Sam Torrance designed course over two days and 36 holes – for the cost of you £5 entry fee. Finalists will stay in the unsurpassed luxury of the St Andrews Bay Hotel, which overlooks the course and the North Sea.
*Each pair winning a competition organised at their home club qualifies a free golf break in Scotland at one of its 540 stunning courses. The top 80 golfers will head to the final at St Andrews Bay.
