Details of this year's Scottish Solicitors Benevolent Fund golf outing

The Scottish Solicitors Benevolent Fund golf outing moves across the Forth to Leven Links this year on Friday 21 August, once again kindly sponsored by the First Scottish Group and Legal Post (Scotland) Ltd (Ross Ireland writes).

Dating from 1820, the Leven Golfing Society (, the 11th oldest golf club in the world, boasts one of the best and purest links courses in Scotland, an Open Championship qualifying venue. It is also the setting for two of the most prestigious amateur events, the Scottish Champion of Champions and the Standard Life Amateur Champion Gold Medal. Now they have the privilege of hosting us! 

Hopefully last year’s winners from Register House will have been too preoccupied with advance notices, plans reports and their own version of the one-shot rule to be bothered with honing their golfing skills to retain the trophy yet again.

Leven Links should provide quite a challenge. The signature hole is the 18th, which in a Bunkered magazine poll was recently voted the second hardest finishing hole in Scotland, behind the 18th at Carnoustie – it is an absolute nightmare if played into the wind, which is almost guaranteed!

For those up to the challenge, teams of four drawn from firms, faculties and indeed anyone with the remotest link with the profession are welcome to come along and put themselves to another great test of links golf.
