Sports Calendar: Golf matchplay event teeing up

Golf may not be considered the most exciting spectator sports around, but when it comes to matchplay, things can get interesting in a hurry. Just look at the last day of the Ryder Cup or the World Golf Championships.

This year, the Danish Matchplay Championships takes place from June 17-19 at the Skjoldenæsholm Golf Center located just south west of Roskilde.

The championships will see the best amateur golfers that Denmark has to offer take on the challenging Trent Jones Jr Course, a 6,094-metre par 72 course riddled with lakes and over 50 bunkers.

Men off first
It’ll be early birds for the men who tee off at 07:00 on Friday morning, while the ladies will start pinging their first drives just after 11:00.

The third round and quarter-finals take place on Saturday, and then only the cream of the crop will return on Sunday for the semi-finals and final.

The clubhouse will be open on all three days from 06:00 in the morning, and food and drink will be available throughout the day. (CW)
