The battle is on to win a place on Team Ireland to take on Team USA in the International King’s Cup Golf Tournament. Golfers of every level are invited to Castlerock Golf Club, Coleraine on Tuesday 12th April.
It’s a pairs event unique in that there are four flights of handicap and within each flight, two teams will qualify under two age brackets 18+ and Seniors 55+. Each pair must have no more than 8 shots between their handicaps. A 55+ player can opt to play with an 18+ player in the Open Age Category.
Once you find a partner, the event committee adds your WH Index and divide by 2. If you fall between any of the below divisions, then on the day of the qualifier you only compete against those who fall into the same flight division.
Championship 0 to 4.9
Category A 5 to 9.9
Category B 10 to 14.9
Category C 15 +
On the day you get to play off the full course handicap in a betterball stroke-play competition but with so many flight divisions and two different age brackets, you will find on the day that you and your partner will only be competing against a few teams.
If you are the leader in the flight division at Castlerock on the 12th April, you and your partner will go forward to the National Final to be played at Glasson Golf Club on the 9th May 2022.
