Take aim for glory in the Tele Foursomes

One lucky pair could march straight into the final of the Belfast Telegraph Foursomes - if they enter by tomorrow’s deadline.

This year’s newly expanded competition has attracted a healthy entry in the traditional low handicap category.

But this year the format of the event has been broadened to allow players with handicaps of up to 28 to enter.

“I think it’s a case of golfers and clubs assuming that only players with handicaps of six or under could enter,” said Gary Posnett of organisers Posnett Golf.

“But that’s no longer the case because it does take time for word to spread.

“So if a team wants to enter in the highest handicap category by Friday they could walk straight into the final which we are holding this year, for the first time, with an overnight stay at the Radisson Blue Farnham Estate in Co Monaghan.”

The highest handicap category is for players with handicaps between 20.5 and 28.4.

“There has been plenty of interest in category two for players with handicaps between 5.5 and 12.4, but we still have some space in category one (less than 5.4) and category three (12.5 to 20.4) as well,” he added.
