Launch of Senior Scratch Cup

Headfort Golf Club has launched their Senior Scratch Cup tournament, which will take place at the Kells venue on Saturday and Sunday, 17th and 18th May next. Generously sponsored by SuperValu, Kells (Larry O’Brien) the tournament  - which was a huge success in 2013 – has grown into a 72-hole competition boasting World Amateur Ranking points, as approved by the R & A. Up to 90 top class golfers from all over Ireland will converge on the fairways of Headfort New (ranked 6th best parkland course in Irelandin Backspin magazine) on the Saturday morning and continue in the afternoon when they take on the challenge of Headfort Old in an attempt to make the top 50 and equals for a Sunday tee-time. The qualifiers will tee-up again on Sunday morning on the new course and the drama will conclude on Headfort Old on Sunday afternoon. Spectators are more than welcome to come along and watch the cream of young talent compete for the honour of Headfort Senior Scratch Cup winner. Competition Secretary Fred Reilly outlined that having the R & A approve world ranking points gives the tournament a higher profile and will attract the highest grade players which will include most of the current Irish Senior Panel. Headfort player and Irish international Rory McNamara is expected to lead the local challenge. Last year’s winner – Simon Ward – has moved on into the professional ranks so a new name will appear on the trophy on Sunday evening. European Tour professional Damien McGrane is also excited about the forthcoming event at his home club. “It’s great to see Headfort get together to pool its resources with two wonderful courses here for the category one player. It’s a good test of golf and will certainly test all aspects of their game where they will use every club in the bag. So Headfort, with the backing of SuperValu (Kells) will put on a good test of golf with the golf courses in great condition.” Headfort Golf Club encourages all golf enthusiasts to visit the club on the weekend of 17th/18th to enjoy the spectacle and support the players.
