The PING Scottish Open series will feature six qualifying rounds leading to a big final berth at Trump International in Aberdeen.
One of the prizes up for grabs is a round with Calum Hill, winner of the DP World Tour last year, at Gleneagles.
The qualifying rounds will take place at Murcar Links, Douglas Park, Fraserburgh, Bruntsfield Links, Longniddry and Western Gailes.
The players with the top gross scores and the top four net scores will advance to the finals in August.
Fraser Munro, Scottish Golf’s Events Manager, said: “The new PING Scottish Open series will help make our events even more engaging, accessible and inclusive in the future.
“It is extremely important that our National Championships not only cater to golfers of all ages and abilities, but continue to adapt and evolve.”
OpenPlay, which was launched by Scottish Golf last summer, has attracted over 1,200 independent golfers.
