Duke of Edinburgh Cup UK Qualifying Event 2020

This year the UK qualifying event took place on Thursday 10th September 2020 at the Archerfield Dirleton Course, the first time the event has been held in Scotland.

A total of 62 players took part, a tremendous achievement given the Covid-19 travel restrictions imposed on those coming from the Glasgow area a couple of days before the event.  Gordon Nisbet and Douglas Gold were the winners with a better ball score of 43 Stableford Points.

The day ran with a rolling format because of COVID-19 restrictions, and it was not possible to have a live auction nor a formal prize-giving at the end. Fundraising activities took the form of entry to on course challenges, a random number prize draw and a silent auction.

My special thanks to Alan Shearer who stepped in as a late replacement for Graeme Souness, Vice President of DEBRA, who was unable to travel on the day, and ATFX for their continued support, and for helping us deliver a DOE Cup qualifying event against all the odds.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the players who took part on the day.   I look forward to seeing the winners at the World Finals at Windsor in late September 2021.
