Sheffield golfers to tee off for famous cup
Golfers will have the chance to battle it out in one of Sheffield’s oldest golf tournaments when it returns to the city this month.
Tinsley Park Golf Club, which is managed by Sheffield International Venues (SIV), is hosting the prestigious Banning Cup competition on Saturday 23 June.
The stroke play competition, which is celebrating its 91st year, is played over 36 holes with a prize table for both gross and net scores over the day and for morning and afternoon rounds.
The competition is open to all amateur members of golf clubs affiliated to the Sheffield Union of Golf Clubs, as long as they hold a current handicap of 12 or less.
Andy Carnall, SIV’s golf manager, said: “The Banning Cup is a historical Sheffield tournament dating back to 1921 and one that we are proud to host at Tinsley Park year after year.
“The competition always creates a lot of interest with local golfers and, with the course in great condition, we are looking forward to see who scoops the famous trophy this year.”
The Banning Cup will be presented to the player with the lowest net score after the 36 holes of competition and the Len Ledger Trophy is awarded to the player with the lowest gross score.
Tinsley Park Golf Course is an 18-hole par 70 course and provides challenge for golfers at all levels, with length, accuracy, judgement of distance and concentration all required.
Entry to the Banning Cup is £25 per person and players can register online or can pick up registration forms from reception at Tinsley Park Golf Club.
