Scotland's best young players have been assured they will not miss out on coaching following the closure of the Scottish National Golf Centre at Drumoig, Fife. The centre was used as a golf academy but last month was put into receivership after sustaining losses of almost pound;1 million since opening in 1999.

"We are in detailed discussions with the St Andrews Links Trust to ensure we have appropriate coaching and practice facilities available at all times," says Alistair Low, chairman of Scottish Golf, the Scottish Golf Union operating company that was responsible for funding the centre.

"These would be facilities at the Links Trust's site in St Andrews, and we are confident there will be minimal impact on the work the SGU carries out in coaching our various age group training squads from under 14-year-olds up to our senior team, as well as junior groups from schools and clubs."
