At Archerfield Links we are proud to have hosted golf events for some of the worlds most famous names, including Major Champions Gary Player, Ian Woosnam and Darren Clarke on separate occasions.
In 2011 we hosted the Botham and Clarke Celebrity Invitational, a two day celebrity invitational event, raising money for Breast Cancer and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. Teams were hosted by celebrities and European Tour players including Jamie Redknapp, Paul Collingwood, Dunhill Links winner Michael Hoey and Shane Lowry.
The Aberdeen Ladies Scottish Open was held for a second consecutive year, over the Fidra Links in August 2011. 60 Ladies European Tour players lined up opposite 60 Amateurs in the three day event which saw local professional and honorary Member of Archerfield Links Catriona Matthew take the title.
New to the calendar in 2011 we also hosted an Invitational Pro Am with Ian Woosnam which saw amateur teams play alongside European Senior Tour players including course designer DJ Russell, Sandy Lyle and Peter Fowler.
