The Sutherland Links will host the top professional golfers in Scotland in the third event of the series which will feature 12 rounds on Monday, April 26 and April 27.

The series gets underway at Montrose Links on April 15 and 16 before heading to Kilmarnock on April 19 and 20.

After Royal Dornoch, the series will also travel to Pollok on May 18 and 19 and the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre on July 14 and 15.

The series will travel to St Andrews, Blairgowrie and Muirfield in September as well as Leven, Gullane, Royal Aberdeen before finishing at Carnoustie in October.

Royal Dornoch suffered a blow this week when it decided to give up hosting the Men's Home Internationals after the event was postponed from April to September.

But club general manager Neil Hampton is confident that the Tartan Pro Tour can go ahead in two months time.

“As the Tartan Pro Tour is professional golf, there is more leeway to allow them to take part in sport,” said Hampton.

“While it is not 100 per cent certain just now, we are reasonably confident that we will be able to see them in April.”
