Match Play Pairs 2024 – Entries close Sunday April 21

The entry deadline for the 23rd Northern Golfer Match Play Pairs tournament, in partnership with Albatross Golf Holidays & Events, is fast approaching.

To be part of this year’s tournament, pairs must submit their entries by Sunday April 21 here.

The 2024 prize package has been enhanced by Albatross, which is run by North East-based PGA professionals Andrew Scrimshaw and Martyn Jobling, with this season’s winners set to receive an invitation to compete in Albatross’ Turnberry or Portuguese Pairs events in 2025 free of charge* along with £600 in prize vouchers. The runners up will meanwhile receive prize vouchers worth £100.

The 23rd Match Play Pairs event will see pairs of golfers from across the region compete in fourball betterball knock-out matches throughout the season at some of our best venues – with pairs already signed up from clubs including Matfen Hall, Ramside Hall, Close House, and Pannal.

The entry fee remains £30 per pair, with the final set to take place in September. As well as receiving their prize package, the winners will appear in Northern Golfer magazine and earn a place in the region’s golfing history books.
