Matchplay Championships


Claregolf wishes to take the first step in introducing the adult County Matchplay championships in 2021. A 54/16 event open to golfers from a Clare Club.

The format will have three gross qualifying rounds for category one players and three Stableford qualifying rounds for category two and three players. The qualifying rounds to be played at open day venues at selected clubs within the county such as  Shannon, Woodstock, and Ennis. The top  16 in each category  ( 0-6hcp, 7-14hcp, and 15-20 hcp.) will advance to the matchplay stage.

The quarter-final, semi-final, and finals matches will be played at a neutral venue over eighteen holes, if a match is tied after the eighteen holes then it will return to the first tee box and continue until a winner is declared. If both players in any match including the final are from the same club then that match will take place at their home club.

Like the junior county matchplay championship,  we hope that the new adult matchplay championship will grow to become one of our county’s prestigious titles to win within the next decade or so.
