Dundalk as always will provide a strong field with a top quality venue. Their is a very impressive list of names on the trophy including Padraig Harrington, Darren Clarke, Michael Hoey, JB Carr, John Carr, Dave Sheahan, Declan Brannigan, Barry Reddan, Noel Fox, Michael McGeady, Peter Rodgers and Danny Coyle. I could go on and on - and on. Suffice to say the winner here will earn his victory.
As a lont time pilgrim to the Wee County for the Dundalk Scratch Cup I can personally vouch for the quality of the course and the hospitality bestowed on visitors. The welcome and reception received has been second to none and is very much appreciated by all the players.
I return year on year to see old friends and maybe someday figure in the prizes. From about ten visits I have not even managed to win as much as a booby prize.
The quality of the golf course and the reception received however make this one of the most enjoyable events of the year. I still look forward to the day where I will be able to go up and shake the Captains hand and take a prize with me for the long journey home.
