GOLFERS in Cornwall have been given a top event to look forward to in 2021.
St Enodoc Golf Club and Trevose Golf & Country Club in North Cornwall have launched the Atlantic Pairs competition.
It offers golfers the opportunity to play two top championship links next spring, and those who enjoy playing pairs events something positive and exciting to look forward to at a time when golf is off the agenda for the moment.
The two-day tournament, a fourball betterball stableford format, sees play taking place over the James Braid-designed Church Course at St Enodoc in Rock, and the Championship Course at Trevose laid out by Harry Colt, which is located on the opposite side of the Camel Estuary near Padstow.
The tournament entry fee is £185 per pair, which also includes a two-course meal after golf provided at each venue.
An optional two’s sweep each day is available at an additional cost of £10 per pair per venue, whilst Trevose is offering a special tournament ‘Bed & Breakfast’ rate at their on-site accommodation overlooking Constantine Bay.
The competition allows any mix of gender, though a maximum handicap of 20 for men and 24 for ladies is required.
With a maximum of 110 pairs, golfers are being encouraged to book soon to avoid disappointment.
“The Atlantic Pairs next March will give golfers the opportunity to play two fantastic championship links and to meet new golfing friends,” said Simon Greatorex, general manager at St Enodoc.
“The event is open to all and we look forward to welcoming visiting golfers from all over the country as well as from Europe and possibly further afield.
“If successful, we are looking to stage the Atlantic Pairs on an annual basis as an early Spring celebration of golf and friendship.”
