Hermitage Golf Club is preparing to host one of its most important events of the season, the Ladies Scratch Cup. The new date this year will be Sunday, August 1, and as usual will be played over 36 holes.

The Hermitage Ladies Scratch Cup is the longest running scratch cup in the country and celebrates its 49th year this year. Along with its longevity, the event has always maintained a high quality field and the organising committee are confident that this year will be no exception.

Previous winners include such luminaries as Curtis Cup Player Mary McKenna, a nine times winner of the trophy, and Scotland’s Belle Robinson, one of the first women to receive honorary membership of the R&A in 2014. Another winner of this trophy is Leona Maguire now on the LPGA Circuit, a three times winner, and Catriona Matthew (nee Lambert) Captain of the Solheim Cup.

Hermitage made history in 2016 having the first home winner in Ciara Casey, and she beat the field again in 2017 therefore making history for Hermitage two years in succession. Stephanie Meadows, LPGA professional, also competed in the scratch cup for many years before she moved to the USA. Hermitage Golf Club are proud winners of the Best Parkland Course in Leinster on 3 separate occasions.

Entry forms can be downloaded from the Hermitage website (Click on Visitors). The closing date for entries is Friday the 23rd July, 2021.
