Entries flood in for Classic

GOLFERS from across the globe will be descending upon Carnoustie Country in May to compete in the Carnoustie Country Classic.

Organisers have revealed that, although the majority of entries are from golfers in the UK, golfers from as far afield as Denmark, Germany and the USA have also entered.

This year it takes place on four of Carnoustie Country’s Open Championship and Open qualifier courses from May 13 to 16.

Danish golfer John Kreiner has competed in four Carnoustie Country Classics and is counting down the days to this year’s tournament.

“Just like a child before Christmas, it feels as though May will never arrive,” laughs John.

As a devotee of links golf, John adds that one of his personal highlights of competing in the Carnoustie Classic is the opportunity it provides to play on Carnoustie Championship, Monifieth Medal, Panmure Barry and Montrose Medal.

“I love the unforgettable challenge of these courses,” he continues.

“I also love knowing that, over the years, so many of the world’s top golfers have struggled almost as much me on these courses!

“Also, having played golf in many places across Europe, I’ve seldom encountered such a well-organised, friendly golf tournament as the Carnoustie Country Classic, where each round seems to end with enjoying a pint with old and new friends, laughing and joking about the day’s events!”

The Carnoustie Country Classic consists of a 72-hole stableford competition, with gents’, ladies’ and over-65s’ championship titles at stake.

Places are still available and entries are open to men and women golfers, with a maximum handicap of 24 (men) and 36 (women).
