Handa Cup

September 12, 2015

Palm Aire Country Club proudly announces that State Senator Nancy Detert has agreed
to serve as Honorary Chair of the
ISPS Handa CupTournament

The LPGA Legends Event takes place at the club November 12-14. The Handa Cup is the tour’s premier tourney, featuring a Ryder Cup style format in which the twelve best players born in the USA compete against the twelve best players from the rest of the world.

“As a lifelong golfer, I am delighted to be a part of the Handa/Legends event in Sarasota, “ Detert commented.

Players accumulate points earned in regular tour tournaments over the course of the season. LPGA Hall of Famer Nancy Lopez will captain this year’s Team USA. Sally Little of South Africa, a fifteen–time winner on the LPGA Circuit, will lead Team World.

“Every golfer should be thrilled to see Nancy Lopez and all the other legends of golf,” Detert pro-claimed. “I remember when Nancy played at Bent Tree on the women’s tour,” she noted. “ I walked the course and watched in awe as she played. To meet her in person is very exciting. I look forward to seeing these legends of golf back in Sarasota, and hope everyone will show up to give them a warm welcome.”

Events kick off with a practice round open to the public on Thursday, November 12, followed by team competitions on Friday and Saturday. Friday will feature 4-ball matches in the morning and afternoon and Saturday’s play will highlight head-to-head matches.

Palm Aire Club President Ed Kornberger said the club was “absolutely thrilled to have Nancy Detert, a former Club Champion herself, take such an active role in bringing The Legends Tour and The ISPS Handa Cup to our area.”

Tickets available through Evie’s Tavern locations, Gateway Bank locations, Golfsmith, and over 70 area private and public golf clubs in the tri-county area.
