The R&A has cancelled the 2020 Coronation Foursomes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The leading foursomes event in Great Britain and Ireland for women and girls will next be played in 2021.
Duncan Weir, Executive Director – Golf Development and Amateur Championships, said, “The lockdown measures imposed by the governments in Great Britain and Ireland have meant that playing golf has been put on hold for all clubs and their members in these countries.
“It is very unlikely that clubs will be able to stage qualifying events in the near future, so we have decided that cancelling this year’s Coronation Foursomes is the only option. We are grateful to all the clubs who had previously agreed to host qualifying events and Area Finals this year and hope that they will consider being involved again in 2021.
“We will look forward to working with national associations and golf clubs again next year to inspire more women and girls of all ages to take part in this extremely popular and long established competition.”
Further information on the 2021 Coronation Foursomes will be provided in due course.
