The competitors will play three links courses, Dumbarnie Links, Kingsbarns and the world famous New Course, as well as one heathland course, The Duke’s.

The package has been put together by golf tour experts MTX.

MTX founder Nicole Scott-McKie said: “We believe we have created something totally unique and we hope to welcome enthusiastic golfers from across the UK, Ireland and beyond.

“Whilst there are tournaments for fathers and sons, and other events aimed at male golfers, we felt there was a real gap for an exciting tournament for female, amateur golfers.

“This year has seen huge numbers playing golf as an escape during the pandemic but still only around 15 per cent of golf club members are women.

“That said, it is hugely encouraging to see organisations and clubs encouraging more females to play and we hope this tournament will provide a great opportunity to celebrate women in golf.”
