The Phoenix Cup has been played on 27 occasions by 773 golfers from 18 nations

 

The Phoenix Cup  is a team international, which showcases the unique position of golf as one of the few sports where players of all skills and abilities can play together on a level playing field, because of the golf handicap system.

 

The inaugural Phoenix Cup was held when golfers from Canada and Scotland got together to arrange a multi-nation and friendly match play competition, at the Chippewa Creek Golf Club in Hamilton, Ontario.  We in Scotland, pulled together a ‘Rest of the World’ team from the likes of Australia, Eire, South Africa, Germany, France and the Home Nations and travelled to Canada to compete against a squad from across North America.

 

The Phoenix Cup is the worlds first fully inclusive team international and  is based firmly on the Ryder/Solheim Cup, where disabled golf groups from around the world are invited annually, to bring together teams to compete and continue to develop and promote  the sport for players of any age, with any type of disability.  To date, The Phoenix Cup is still the only pan-Disability match play team golf event in the world.

 

Such is the strength and draw of the Phoenix Cup, that the next two  events are already arranged:  

 

The 29th Phoenix Cup will be played over three prestigious golf courses, (Sandpiper, Alisol Ranch and Alisol River) near Santa Barbara, just North of Los Angeles, California US of A, from Monday 28 thru Wednesday 30 August 2023 and . . . . .  .  

 

The 30th Phoenix Cup will be hosted by the St Andrews Links Trust and played at "The Home of Golf", over The Old, New & Jubilee Golf Courses, from Monday 28 to Wednesday 30 October 2024, when a team from the US will compete against a European Team made up of golfers of all disabilities and abilities.

Phoenix Event Notes

 

Click here to see the Aylesford & Arden scorecards 

 

Golf on Saturday 13th is booked on the Aylesford at 10:59 at £25 and buggies at £25 for up to 20 players.  Golf on Saturday 13th is booked on the Arden at 13:50 at £35 and buggies at £25 for up to 32 players.  

 

The 28th Phoenix Cup is a Stableford Singles competition throughout, using the WHS Stableford system (Scottish/USA version) and calculations, relating to the Forest of Arden Courses and their par and slope index.  Play is from the yellow tee markers for all players during the three competition rounds.  There are twelve competition tee times each day, with one representative from each team per tee.  Each fourball will play a Stableford competition, and at the conclusion of each 18 holes, the player with the highest returned points will win three points for their team, second highest points will receive two points and third one point.  The lowest returned score will not receive any points for their team.  (i.e. 37=3pts, 34=2pts, 30=1pt and 23=0pts).  Any tied returned points will be separated using the standard Stableford calculations, on back nine, back six, back three or final hole scores.

 

The four Team Captain’s will complete their twelve player draw sheet with verified handicaps by 20:00 the evening before each round.  These can then be submitted to an independent person at Forest of Arden.  No changes to the draw can be made without the full agreement of all four Captain’s.  The Captains will complete and issue daily score cards with names and handicaps.  Score cards must be exchanged between the four golfers before play, so no one marks their own card.  Scores must be verified between all players as they move to the next hole.  If any golfer cannot score at any hole, they must alert their playing partners, pick up their ball, have a zero point recorded for that hole and move on.  Only gross scores for that one player are to be entered on a score card, unclear or illegible figures will result in no score/points being recorded.   All clearly legible and signed cards must be returned within 20 minutes of finished rounds to the scorer in the Phoenix Room.  No further changes ar permitted, and once scores are calculated and posted , scors will stand.

 

One of the Referee's for the Phoenix Cup 4-Nations is Mary Childs, a locally based level three qualified referee with the Royal & Ancient of St Andrews.  If a dispute occurs, or a player needs a decision that cannot be resolved in their fourball, the Referee can be called to make rule book decisions on any matters arising, by the use of the Local/Club Rules, the R&A Rules of Golf book and the Modification to the Rules of Golf for Golfers with Disabilities.  No other publications or printed materials may be used to reference the Rules of Golf during the Phoenix.  Speed of play will be monitored and slow groups will be penalised.

 

The first tee-off order will remain the same each day, i.e. a USA player , will tee off first, followed by Scotland, Wales, then England,. Golf balls and any provisional balls, must be clearly and individually marked.  Phoenix golfers must remain alert to their speed of play at all times.  Fourballs Stableford should complete either Forest of Arden golf course, in under four hours fifty minutes. 

 

The total Resort stock of twenty Four golf buggies are reserved each day, for the 48 competition golfers.  Phoenix golfers may bring their own buggy/cart and this can be charged/stored at the venue.  Phoenix players golf bags can be stored each evening, either in the Phoenix Room or bedrooms.  Phoenix players and guests must register a credit/debit card on check in.  All Phoenix players and guests are responsible for extra costs and any additional room charges.

 

All Phoenix players and guests should be aware that interviews and photographic opportunities are being planned during the event and everyone is expected to participate and assist in the promotion of golf for people with disabilities.
