Munster Stroke Play Draw Released

​​Countdown to Munster Strokeplay

  • 21 April 2017

​The countdown is on to the Munster Strokeplay which takes place next weekend.  The competition will see the strongest field yet take part in the 72 hole championship, with over 50 plus-handicap golfers in the field.  The cut for the event fell at 0.3 which represents a new low qualifying mark for the 75 qualifiers.  Holder Cathal Butler is currently competing in Peru but will be back to defend his title.  Also in the field is West of Ireland Champion Barry Anderson who won in Cork in 2014.  In fact five of the final eight from the West have entered so the competition should be intense.  The event has the added attraction of being a qualifying event for the Willie Gill Award.  The event is sponsored by Ryan’s SuperValu.  Liam Ryan who owns a number of SuperValu supermarkets in Cork is known for supporting local clubs and organisations and his support for the event should see an enhanced tournament experience for all of the participants.  Cork GC Captain Rob Reardon and Manager Matt Sands are both looking forward to the Championship, the third major event Cork has hosted so far this season.  The course is in great condition and the recent fine weather has helped Superintendent Anthony Gillis and his team in preparing the course for some of Ireland’s top amateurs.  All 75 entrants will play 36 holes on Saturday, with the top 39 plus ties going on to play the second 36 holes on Sunday.
