The Phoenix Cup 2019 & 2020

Cardrona Golf Resort Peebles Scottish Borders Sunday 25 to Tuesday 27 August

The Phoenix Cup is a disabled golf team event, based on the Ryder/Solheim Cup format, generated and organised by the SDGC.  Other disabled golf groups from around the world are invited annually, to bring together teams to compete and continue to develop and promote  golf for all golfers, with any type of disability or health issue that interferes with the game.


The inaugural Phoenix Cup was generated between Canadian and Scottish Disability Golfers over ten years ago, and involved a Rest of the World squad and a team from North America.


The Phoenix Cup has involved 693 golfers from 18 nations and been played in 6 countries

The Cardrona Programme Notes


Cardrona, Peebles EH45 8NE Tel: 0344 879 9024 International: +44 1896 831144


1  This is an SDGC event, to promote golfers with disabilities and our charity.  We are playing to have fun and create friendships to help grow the game.  We all want to go out on the course and play well to win.  However, this is not always possible.  The main thing is to avoid politics, personality clashes and to get out there and enjoy ourselves?


2  Please arrive at Cardrona by 11:00 on Sunday?   You will need to leave your luggage in the car, or a room we have set aside at the hotel, as official check in is not until 14:00, when you are out on the course.  Arrangements have been made with both teams, that if a travel issue occurs and players are delayed and not able to make their official tee time on the Sunday, then their match will be set back as much as possible to ensure that their match can be completed.  The next days draw will be issued after the evening meal.


3  Six golf carts have been booked for each team.  Golf cart keys will be issued to those needing them on arrival by SDGC.  Please remember to hand your golf cart key back in after your round, as they do need charging or refilling with fuel. 


4  There will be six buckets of range practice balls set out on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday mornings, about 2 hours before first tee.  The range is only for irons and shorter rescue/woods.  One flat area has been set aside for practice by the paragolfer users.  The 12 golf carts are to be shared on Tuesday’s singles games, i.e. one Euro/1 Scottish player per cart.


5  if there are any disputes on the course, about the Rules of Golf or the Modification to the Rules of Golf for Golfers with Disabilities, which cannot be sorted out by your tee-time players,then the Team Captain's and the Tournament Referee, David MacMullen should be approached.


6  If you have any problems, questions or personal issues with your room, food or hotel facilities or service, please get in touch with the hotel reception direct to complain

The golfer who takes the nett title at the Dalmahoy East Championship Course from 8-10 September, will gain a place at this highly prestigious event on Team Europe, to play Team USA in September 2020.


Other Team Europe 2020 Qualifying


Using the existing SDGC team Europe selection criteria, the top four players from the Patriot Order of Merit Championship on a given date in August 2020, will automatically qualify for a playing place, with all remaining team players, being selected as "Captain's Wild-Card" choices, from the SDGC’s existing European membership


For the selection of these top four playing places, which will utilise the existing points scoring system for the Patriot Order of Merit Tables, and to incorporate the Sidey Open winner offer, the Captain has decided to extend the overall qualification time and will incorporate all SDGC competitions from the first round of the Scottish Open 2019 through to the final qualifying round in August 2020.


”Members wishing to qualify for Team Europe by accumulating early points, are encouraged to enter the Sidey Scottish Open at Dalmahoy.  Best of luck to those trying to qualify.”
