Amateur golfers are being urged to get their entries in for a chance to represent Ireland in this year’s International Kings Cup, which will end in a Ryder Cup-style 54-hole matchplay tournament against the best of the USA from May 14-18.

The event, played in honour of Arnold Palmer, has established itself as a leading tournament on the amateur calendar. Four provincial qualifiers will be staged in March and April in a bid to identify the best Irish team and the format of the event is unique, with openings for every person who holds an official GUI handicap.

Eight teams from each qualifier will progress to the final qualifying stage at the Faldo Course at the five-star Lough Erne Resort on Sunday, April 15. Lynn McCool (right), Director of Golf and Head Professional at Lough Erne, said: “Given the high levels of interest, we are encouraging golfers to get their registrations in quickly via the office of each hosting provincial club.”
