ROYAL Dornoch Golf Club will not host the Men's Home Internationals in April as it has been confirmed the event has been postponed to later in the year.
The Sutherland Links was due to host the competition between April 14 to 16, but organisers have confirmed it will not go ahead on that date due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Men’s Home Internationals will now be played from September 15 to 17 at a venue to be confirmed at a later date.
It is not yet known in Royal Dornoch will still be in contention to host the event.
The R&A chief development officer Phil Anderton said: “There is still a degree of uncertainty as to when the current health and safety measures throughout Great Britain and Ireland will be eased and so we have decided to reschedule the event until later this year when hopefully the situation with the pandemic has improved.”
The R&A remain confident The Amateur Championship at Nairn and Nairn Dunbar can go ahead on June 14- 19.
It said they are working closely with both clubs to make arrangements for the event in June.
They will monitor the situation with the pandemic and be guided by the Scottish Government’s health measures.
