With the introduction of this new competition by the Golfing Union of Ireland, club golfers will have a unique opportunity to participate at individual level in a national GUI event. Spread across three different handicap categories, the competition is open to all club members and entry is free for all affiliated golf clubs.
The GUI All-Ireland Gold Medals consist of three stages:
First, each entered club will nominate one of their singles competitions as a club qualifier. Entrants on the day will compete in one of three handicap categories – 9 and below, 10-17 or 18 and over. The best nett score in each category will qualify for the regional final.
Four regional finals will be held throughout Ireland in August of 2019, with all club qualifiers playing for a place in the All-Ireland Final. The best three scores in each category in each provincial final will advance (36 golfers in all).
The All-Ireland Final of the event will take place at The K Club on Tuesday 8th October 2019, with a meal and prizegiving ceremony taking place after their round.
Details of the Blessington Lakes qualifier will be announced soon.
