SQY will welcome, at the end of the summer, some of the best amateur golfers on the occasion of the world amateur golf team championships, which will be held at the Golf national and the Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche golf course from August 24 to September 3. The two golf courses were awarded in 2018 the organization of this event, organized every two years by the International Golf Federation, and which revealed some of the biggest names. Tiger Woods was notably titled there in 1994.
58 nations for the ladies and 72 for the gentlemen are expected this year. The women will be the first to compete, from August 24 to 27, and the men will follow from August 31 to September 3. Matches are played over 72 holes over four days. “Each team is made up of three players, and the total for each day is made up of the two best cards, details the French Golf Federation. Tournaments don’t have a cup as such, in other words, everyone stays in the same ranking throughout the event. Nevertheless, after the second round, the table is split in two: the first half of the classification plays on a course on the third day then on the other on the fourth. » Free admission, information on ffgolf.org.
