The second Golf in the Park Festival on the historic Bruntsfield Links short hole course in Edinburgh takes place next weekend on 4 July. To have something golf related of this size in the heart of the city is quite rare.

Among the events are demonstrations by a renowned golf trick shot artist, Dave Edwards.

There are kids competitions, an event using hickory shafted clubs and some more serious stuff with the prizes including tickets to the Open at St Andrews and Scottish Open at Gullane as well as fourballs at Royal Dornoch and Kingsbarns to be won.

The event runs from 10am until 5.30pm and since it is just before the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open we’ve been told there is a chance Stephen Gallacher will drop by to keep tabs on the work of his Foundation and Monty might also be there. Golf in the Park is also sponsored by AAM.

Jane Connachan will lead the SG kids event and Cliffe Jones (Glencorse)is first pro to offer his services.
