England Golf is excited to announce a new event for the 2021 season – the PING Mixed Betterball.
This follows up on the tremendous success of the long-running PING Women’s Betterball which remains on the schedule for next season.
Clubs should mark a spring or early summer date in their diary now for the new PING Mixed Betterball qualifying event as well as one for the PING Women’s Betterball.
Details on closing dates, handicap limits and precise rules of competition will be sent to all affiliated clubs early next year.
The new mixed event for club golfers will see the top 52 pairs in the country qualify for the national final at Thonock Park on Tuesday 7 September, 2021.
Winners and runners-up from each club – even if they don’t make it to the final – will receive prizes from PING.
PING Europe General Manager, Lisa Lovatt, is anticipating impressive numbers of participants following a difficult year for the golf industry as a whole due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This new initiative epitomises PING’s support for golfers of all ages, genders and abilities and we are inviting all players to get involved, find themselves a partner and sign up for the event,” she commented.
“Inclusivity and forward-thinking has always been synonymous with PING, from the creation of the Solheim Cup to the success of the Women’s Fourball Betterball Tournament. We are dedicated to supporting club golf, and we hope that this new mixed event helps to bring golfers together in 2021 and onwards.”
The 2021 PING Women’s Betterball Finals will also be played at Thonock Park on Monday 6 September. Again, the top 52 pairs from club qualifiers will take part in the final. All winners and runners up at club level will receive PING prizes.
