A new event aimed at building “inner-city” golf is being held in the Capital later this week.

Golf in the Park, which is being organised by the Edinburgh Golf umbrella group, takes place at Bruntsfield on Saturday, August 23rd.

“Whilst it is Ryder Cup themed, we see this being an annual event, under ‘inner city’ golf, where we can really develop in future years an exciting and amazing package to showcase golf,” said spokesman Bill Buchan. “This year we plan to take golfers on a journey from 400 years ago – golf has been played at Bruntsfield for about that period – up to today and will encourage people to dress up in plus fours etc.
