ONE of the most anticipated amateur golf tournaments for 2020 is here with the launch of the International King’s Cup and organisers have announced for 2020 that the event is now Open to Male & Female Golfers.
Donegal players have made it on to the team in previous years so this year organisers have arranged a regional qualifier to take place at the beautiful Donegal Golf Club (Murvagh) Links

It is one of the finest links courses in Ireland so we have no doubt it will be a popular venue for qualification” Tournament US Golf Challeng Director, Bob Butte said.
The International Kings Cup, a three-day 54-hole amateur match play pairs tournament structured like the Ryder Cup, was formed in 2016 and is played in honour of golf’s greatest ambassador Mr Arnold Palmer.
