Royal Dublin's Richard Knightly was the big winner of the 2014 Kerry Scratch Cup. But a year has passed and Tralee Golf Club has announced that it will again host the Kerry Group sponsored event from June 13-14.
The prestigious 111-year old trophy will this year be played over 54 holes with the top 21 after the opening two rounds qualifying for final round and the chance to win prizes worth €2,250.
The overall winner will receive a "voucher" for €700 and the honour of having their name added to the cup alongside some of the country’s best amateur golfers, including last years' winner Knightly.
The even will again offer WAGR points and ranking points for the Munster team for the interpros.
The club has also completely re-designed its 9th hole, which will be in play for this year's tournament. A new short game practice facility is also open.
Tralee Golf Club Captain Ger O'Connor said: "We are delighted to bring the Kerry Scratch Cup to Tralee Golf Links and I would like to thank our sponsor Kerry Group for their generous support.
"The Kerry Scratch Cup will bring the country’s top amateur golfers to Tralee, as they take on the challenge of our links course, internationally regarded as one of the top 10 ocean courses in the world."
The entry sheet for the Kerry Scratch Cup opened on Friday 1 May and is limited to 81 competitors.
In the event of applications exceeding the number of places, entry will be based on lowest exact handicap received. The entry fee is €60 including lunch between rounds. For further information please feel free to contact either of our tournament director's using the below contact details.
