The popularity of golf with Scotland's juniors has prompted the Scottish Golf Union to give them their own under-14's national championship, to be played at the Hirsel Golf Club in the Borders on 12 July.

The Levern Property Scottish Boys Under-14 Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship will be played for the Douglas Forsyth Trophy, named after the brother of the European Tour player Alastair Forsyth.

Levern Property, a Glasgow based property development and management company will be the title sponsor of the new championship following a 35 year association with Scottish Golf.

Gordon McInnes, their Managing Director, said: "Encouraging juniors to play the game is definitely the way forward for Scottish Golf and I am in no doubt that in this new championship we will see many players who are assured of a successful career in golf."
