Loretto School Scottish Boys’ & Girls’ U14 Open Championship.

This Championship is for leading under-14 boy and girl golfers, first contested in 2001, and is the youngest national age group event in Scotland, which also features an under-12 category.

The event has been greatly supported by the Loretto School Golf Academy, sponsor since 2004, and attracts talented young golfers from across the UK and beyond. Bradley Neil, the former Amateur champion, won back-back titles in 2009-10. Having started its life as an 18-hole event, the championship was extended to 36 holes in 2012 with an expanded field size.

The Loretto Golf Academy, established in 2002, is unique amongst independent boarding and day schools in the United Kingdom. It offers pupils an exceptional opportunity to develop their sporting talent in tandem with a first-class, all-round education for boys and girls up to the age of 18. The golf school operates from the School's state-of-the-art practice facilities and local golf courses in East Lothian.
