Mark Johnston Golf Classic

Golf was invented in Scotland, so it is only appropriate that SCOT holds an annual golf tournament! Since its inception in 2004, the SCOT Golf Classic has been played each June in a Captain’s Choice format that is friendly to golfers of all levels and ages. Three different courses in the Triangle have hosted the Classic: The Crossings at Grove Park, Crooked Creek Golf Course, and Prestonwood Country Club. The Classic is open to anyone, both SCOT members and non-members, and there are prizes galore, including: Champion team, Longest drive (men’s and women’s), Closest to the Pin (men’s and women’s), Best Scottish Attire, Most Lost Balls, Most Gross Score, and others!
