Must read

The Irish leg of the 2024 Audi quattro Cup began with the Audi Galway, Sligo & Ballina quattro Cup event on Thursday, May 2nd where just under 200 golfers took part in the tournament with mixed weather conditions at the stunning Galway Bay Golf Resort. Audi Galway Brand Ambassadors Bundee Aki & Shane Walsh were in attendance to meet and greeting customers which added to the already prestigious occasion.

Alan Devine and Aidan Fleming of Castlerea Golf Club claimed the title of Audi Galway, Sligo & Ballina quattro Cup champions with a score of 40 points. They, along with the next five highest ranking teams will qualify for the Audi quattro Cup National Final taking place in September at the luxurious Portmarnock Hotel and Jameson Golf Links. The award-winning links course is tucked away in one of Ireland’s most stunning stretches of uninterrupted coastline and has played host to professional and amateur events including the 2008 and 2009 Ladies Irish Open and the 2021 Irish Challenge.

Padraig Keating, General Manager at Audi Galway commented: “We are delighted to be back on the golf course once again hosting the Audi Galway, Sligo & Ballina quattro Cup, an event which captures Audi’s historical connection to sport in a golfing context. Audi’s goal is to both develop cutting-edge mobility that inspires and excites, and provide electrifying experiences that connect us with our valued customers. The Audi quattro Cup is a particularly special event for Audi Galway, Sligo & Ballina as we are proud of the opportunity to show our appreciation to our loyal customers.”

The Audi Galway, Sligo & Ballina quattro Cup is the first of nine regional quattro Cup events taking place throughout May, June, and July at some of Ireland’s leading Championship golf clubs, culminating in the Irish National Final. 1,100 amateur golfers from across the country will vie for the ultimate honour of representing Ireland at the 2024 World Final, hosted in the picturesque Al Mouj Golf Club, Oman. This year will mark the 34th year of the prestigious Audi quattro Cup, the largest amateur golf tournament series in the world.

The World Final in November will present finalists from 38 countries across the world, including Ireland, with a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit and play on a World Top 100 golf course on the pristine Indian Ocean coastline of Oman, against a backdrop of the Hajar mountains.

The Audi quattro Cup is a team-based competition with each team consisting of two players and is open to Audi customers and their chosen teammate.  The maximum handicap is 36 (index) per player and 56 (index) per team. The handicap difference between the players in a team must not exceed 20. Very limited places remain for 2024 so Audi customers are encouraged to contact their local dealership for more information.
