The International Kings Cup

The International Kings Cup is a fantastic opportunity for all your members to win a place on to the Irish Team to take on  the USA. Due to the success of the 2016 event  I was asked to take the qualifiers across the island of Ireland and that  is what I’ve done.

The event is for male golfers and  is unique in that is has two age brackets 18+   & Seniors 50+  but also  has four flights of handicap so  anyone who has a GUI handicap can enter.

For each pair that makes it through  the two qualifying stages and on to the team we will

  • Provide 4 night’s accommodation bed & breakfast at  the beautiful Lough Erne Resort
  • Provide a Glenmuir Uniform for each day of the match-play tournament
  • 4 Rounds of Golf on The Faldo Course – Practice round and 3 tournament days
  • Team members will get to attend the Gala Opening  & Closing  Dinners

This year the format for the qualifiers will be pairs betterball.  Half of combined handicap  will distinguish which flight the pairs team will play under

Flight Handicaps:

Championship 4.9 or less
A Flight 5.0 9.9
B Flight 10.0 14.9
C Flight 15.0 and above
