The ladies scratch cup took a new approach this year to allow players the opportunity to gain points for the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) by pairing scratch cup events. Consisting of eight 36-hole events, the events have been paired to create a 72-hole tournament, where players who play in both competitions will have their scores merged and passed to WAGR following the conclusion of events. In creating the 72-hole tournament, Cork Golf Club has been paired with Hermitage Golf Club, which takes place on May 6th.
