Kilkee Cup

Men's Open Matchplay Competition 23rd - 29th July 2017

Kilkee Golf Club celebrated the centenary of its establishment in 1986 and in 2008 celebrated the centenary of one of the longest running Golf competitions in the country - the Kilkee Cup Matchplay. In 1908 the inaugural winner Mr. B. Blood had his name inscribed on the sterling silver Cup and every year since, the proud winner has followed suit, with the notable exception of the war years and the "troubles" when winners weren't recorded. In total there are 100 names on the Cup with 8 double winners and only one triple winner, the late great Limerick golfer J.J. Griffin, who was victorious in 1976, 1977, and 1981.

The Cup itself, in the shape of a golf ball, with golf clubs supporting it on a wooden base, is in remarkable condition, considering that until recently the winner was allowed take it home for the year! Many rumors exist as to the origin of the cup, some local historians suggest that the cup was donated to the Golf Club by the more affluent Kilkee Lawn Tennis Club, others suggest that it had been fashioned from the headlight of an old Bentley Motor Car. In any event it is a treasured piece of silverware and it is the dream of all club members to have their name added to the illustrious roll of honour, having vanquished all comers in single combat.

The format of the Competition is 18 Hole Strokeplay Qualifier, on Sunday 23rd July. Top 15 will join the holder, Neil Higgins, in Matchplay. Round of 16 to be played by Tuesday July 26th, Quarter Final to be played by Thursday July 27th. Semi-Final Friday July 28th, and Final Saturday July 29th

The Kilkee Cup is sponsored by Donal Hayes Foodstore, Kilkee
