Wexford, 14th July 2023: The Irish leg of the 2023 Audi quattro Cup continued with the Audi Wexford and Audi Waterford quattro Cup event on the 13th of July. 160 golfers took part in the tournament at the picturesque Bunclody Golf Club.
PJ O’Farrell and Patsy O’Farrell from New Ross Golf Club claimed the title of Audi Wexford and Audi Waterford quattro Cup champions with a score of 45 points (Back 9: 26). They, along with the next five highest ranking teams will qualify for the Audi quattro Cup National Final taking place in October at the luxury Druid’s Glen Resort on the newly re-opened Glen Golf Course. The Glen Golf Course has previously hosted four Irish Opens and is nicknamed the ‘Augusta of Europe’ and was recently upgraded to a spectacular 7,222-yard par-72 course, built to USGA standards, which this year’s Audi quattro Cup National Finalists will experience first-hand.
Barry Devereux, Head of Marketing & CRM at Audi Wexford commented: “Each year, the Audi quattro Cup proves to be the perfect platform to bring together our passionate customers and provide them with an unforgettable, premium experience. From the high-quality golfing facilities at Bunclody to the impeccable service, we're proud to say that the event was a resounding success, and we can't wait to recreate it all again in 2024. Finally, I'd like to wish the best of luck to the competition winners PJ and Patsy as they go on to represent Audi Waterford and Wexford in the National Final.”
The combined Audi Wexford and Audi Waterford quattro Cup is the sixth of eight regional quattro Cup events taking place throughout June and July at some of Ireland’s leading Championship golf clubs, culminating in the Irish National Final. 1,100 amateur golfers from across the country will vie for the ultimate honour of representing Ireland at the 2023 World Final, hosted in the picturesque Al Mouj Golf Club, Oman. This year will mark the 33rd hosting of the prestigious Audi quattro Cup, the largest amateur golf tournament series in the world.
The World Final in November will present finalists from 38 countries across the world, including Ireland, with a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit and play on a World Top 100 golf course on the pristine Indian Ocean coastline of Oman, against a backdrop of the Hajar mountains.
The Audi quattro Cup is a team-based competition with each team consisting of two players and is open to Audi customers and their chosen teammate. The maximum handicap is 36 (index) per player and 56 (index) per team. The handicap difference between the players in a team must not exceed 20. Very limited places remain for 2023 so Audi customers are encouraged to contact their local dealership for more information.
