ILGU launches Private Home Care Inter-Club Championships

13 February 2012

The Irish Ladies Golf Union has announced Private Home Care as the new sponsor for the Ladies Inter Club Championships.  The championships which were launched in 2006 are now in their 7th year and their popularity continues to grow with clubs and golfers of all handicap ranges.

The three year partnership between Private Home Care and the Irish Ladies Golf Union will continue to build on the success and enjoyment of the inter club matchplay competitions and will now be known as the “Private Home Care Inter-club Championships” for the next three years. 

The ILGU will promote the “Private Home Care Inter-Club championship” throughout the Country.  Currently one in four lady club golfers participate annually in the championships across Ulster, Connaught, Munster, East Leinster and Mid Leinster.

The first rounds of the Private Home Care Inter-Club Championships will commence in March and will culminate in District finals in August/September and National finals in late September.  Club golfers will have the opportunity to compete for the elusive and hard won All Ireland Medal and National Pennant for their Club. 

The Championships consists of six separate tournaments, four singles matchplay competitions and two foursomes competitions.

The Junior Cup (Handicap range 8 – 15)
The Intermediate Cup (Handicap range 16 – 22)
The Minor Cup (Handicap Range 23 – 29)
The Challenge Cup (Handicap Range 30 – 36)
Senior Foursomes (Min combined 14)
Junior Foursomes (Handicap range 15-30 – minimum combined 35)

Chief Executive of the ILGU, Sinéad Heraty, believes the deal with Private Home Care will be a huge boost to the sport of ladies golf, to golf clubs and is a great endorsement of the popularity of these competitions. 

“The Private Home Care Championships will ensure we have clubs across the country competing nationally.  This will not only encourage our golfers to achieve at a high level but it will also promote camaraderie among all players nationwide”.
