The hotly anticipated U.S. Kids Golf European Championships teed off last week in East Lothian after months of planning by the organisers and hours of practice by its pint sized competitors.


Record breaking numbers of young players (nearly 600) turned out from 44 countries around the world making it the most culturally diverse tournament to date.

Proving the championships were on par for yet another successful year in the press, news of the tournament was picked up by The Scotsman, The Herald, Edinburgh Evening News, STV Online, East Lothian News and East Lothian Courier.


Top Scottish sports journalist Graham Spiers, also featured the event on ‘The Golf Show’ which hit the airwaves on  BBC Radio Scotland and can be downloaded as a podcast here.

The sweeping coverage was achieved as part of an ongoing PR campaign for the U.S. Kids Golf European Championships, which is now in its 6th year with Holyrood PR.
