The inaugural Paul Lawrie Invitational presented by Farmfoods was staged at Gleneagles (PGA Centenary Course) on Monday 15th July 2019. A shotgun Pro-Cel-Am, involving one Tour Pro, one celebrity and two amateur guests per team. Supporting the Paul Lawrie Charitable Foundation as well as Doddie Weir’s MN’5Doddie Motor Neurones Disease charity and The Beatson Cancer Charity, we raised more than £50k in support of the three nominated charities.
In 2020 the PL Invitational will move to Archerfield in East Lothian.
The fourth staging of the Scottish Par 3 Championship over the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre’s Championship Devenick Course took place in mid-June and we were delighted that Farmfoods came on board as our new title sponsor. Farmfoods is the longstanding supporter of the British Par 3 Championships and with this sponsorship they are continuing their investment in the sport. Sean Lawrie, attached to the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre, claimed the spoils as he edged-out 5 Star Sports Agency client, Sam Locke to land this year’s title, following in the footsteps of David Dixon (2018), Louis Gaughan (2017) and, event host, Paul Lawrie (2015).
The BrewDog Northern Open will take place over the Old Course at Moray Golf Club between the 2nd and 5th June 2020* – BrewDog, the Scottish Craft Beer firm established in 2007 by James Watt & Martin Dickie and headquartered in the North East of Scotland, has agreed a deal to become the title sponsor of the Northern Open.
As one of the oldest and longest-standing events in golf, it brings together PGA Professionals, a number of invited Professionals and amateurs. Since 1932, past winners of the historic event include 5Star client, David Law – who was the last amateur winner of the event in 2011 before he won again as a Professional in the 2014 edition at Murcar.
