Online entry for the Coronation Foursomes, the unique team competition, is now open
Female club golfers from across Great Britain and Ireland have the chance to stay and play at the home of golf in the historic 70th year staging of the R&A Coronation Foursomes.
Online entry for the unique team competition – the largest of its kind in GB&I that attracted over 17,000 women and girls from almost 1,000 clubs in 2022 – is now open.
Mothers and daughters, friends and family members can again enjoy playing in the popular championship this year – all for just £4 per pair.
After club qualifying and Area Finals, the Grand Final will be held over the Eden Course in St Andrews on Monday, September 18.
This year’s 32 finalists will enjoy a two-night stay at the prestigious Old Course Hotel Golf Resort & Spa, a drinks reception in the confines of the R&A World Golf Museum and have the chance to book a place in the Pro-Am for the 2024 AIG Women’s Open, back at St Andrews over the famous Old Course.
As part of The R&A’s drive to encourage more women and girls into playing golf, the Coronation Foursomes continues to attract all ages.
In 2021, one of the youngest ever pairings to have competed claimed a memorable victory when the Pitlochry Golf Club duo of Isla Johnston, then aged only 14, and Lauren Cameron, then 22, triumphed.
They went on to savour another day to remember by teeing up in the Pro-Am with French player Celine Boutier ahead of the AIG Women’s Open at Muirfield by virtue of their win.
Established in 1953, the Coronation Foursomes is open to all members of affiliated golf clubs in Great Britain and Ireland who hold a hold a current World Handicap System (WHS) Index of 40.0 or under.
Local qualifying competitions – stand alone or played alongside an existing fixture – can be organised by golf clubs in Great Britain and Ireland over the coming weeks, played over 18 holes of handicap stableford foursomes, with the closing date for entries on Sunday 18 June.
The best 100 scores will then qualify for each Area Final held at 16 venues in July and August, before the top 16 teams book their trip to the home of golf for the showpiece final.
Qualifying rounds for the 2023 Coronation Foursomes can be held up until the 18 June closing date which is also the deadline for entries being submitted online.
