Collingtree Park Sends Two Teams to Matchplay Championship Grand Final

Castell & Billson win the Men’s Pairs Regional Final, while David & Tracy Morris qualify out of the Mixed Pairs event. Both to compete in Dubai’s Grand Final.

In glorious weather conditions on the 6th April, the pair of Andy Castell and Andy Billson have advanced to the Matchplay Championship Grand Final being held in Dubai next month, after winning the hotly contested Men’s Pairs event at the South Regional Final hosted by Marriott St.Pierre in South Wales. Scoring 44 points in the better-ball format, the five and six handicappers have beaten off thousands of other competitors from across the UK & Ireland to qualify for the concluding event of the UK’s largest amateur golf tournament, the Matchplay Championship. Incredibly, they will be joined by David and Tracy Morris, who return to the Mixed Pairs Grand Final after competing in the same event last year.

Having reached the final stage of their very own ‘Race to Dubai,’ the pairs will be flown out to the Emirate, where they will enjoy 7 nights of luxury accommodation at the Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel and 3 days competition at the world-renowned Els Club. Filmed exclusively by Sky Sports cameras, they will have the chance to shine in front of a TV audience usually reserved for the world’s best players.

“Our Matchplay Championship experience has been fantastic from the very first round. The Regional Final, with photographers and the Sky Sports cameras was amazing and we’re thrilled to have qualified for the Grand Final in Dubai. In fact, we could have had three pairs from the club going if we hadn’t beaten our club captain in the last round,” commented Andy Castell, South Regional Final Winner.

“We weren’t sure that’d we’d done enough this time, but we are delighted to get through again,” commented Tracy Morris. “This means everything to us and would encourage anybody to enter.”

“It’s been a great day here at Marriott St.Pierre and we have seen some tremendous golf from the players involved,” commented John Woosey, Managing Director of the JRW Group, which organises the Matchplay Championship. “Playing in front of the Sky Sports cameras is a great experience with the Collingtree Park pairs certainly rising to the occasion. We’re excited about seeing them compete in the Grand Final, as they’ve proved that they have what it takes to win it.”

With the North and South Regional’s now complete, 36 golfers have booked their place in the Grand Final, being hosted at the world-renowned Els Club, Dubai, from 7th-14th May. However entries for the 2011/2012 Matchplay Championship are now open, including a brand-new Men’s Singles event. For further information please visit www.matchplaychampionship.co.uk
