The Lanarkshire Golf Association was formed in 1953 and one of its co-founding Presidents, John S.Montgomerie of Cambuslang, went on to win the Scottish Amateur Championship four years later.
Today, more than 37 clubs play over 33 courses in the area and the Association organises regional competitions, selecting venues and dates, as well as setting conditions and rules under which the events are held.
The area has produced many outstanding amateur golfers who, like John S. Montgomerie, have claimed the Scottish Amateur title; men like Craig Everett at Gullane in 1990, Graham Rankin at Prestwick in 1998, Craig Heap at Cruden Bay the following year then Steven O'Hara the year after that at Royal Dornoch.
