Sixteen countries, bannered by defending champion Thailand and regional powerhouses Australia, Japan, and Korea, are vying for team and individual honors in the Nomura Cup, the Asia-Pacific region’s most prestigious and longest-running men’s team championship.
The 29th edition of the Nomura Cup will be held from November 15 to 18 at the Masters’ course of the Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club in Carmona, Cavite with the trio of Kristoffer Arevalo, Elee Bisera, and Coby Rolida hoping to finally end the Philippines’ quest for a first victory in the biennial event.
It will mark the country’s fourth hosting of the Nomura Cup with the first three all held at the Wack Wack east course in 1963, 1971, and 1991.
“It is a great honor and pleasure for the Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club to host the 2022 Nomura Cup. We welcome the 16 national teams from Asia who will participate in this championship event. We have always supported junior and amateur golf which we believe represents the future of the entire golfing industry,” said Manila Southwoods chairman Bob Sobrepeña.
Australia, the winningest team in Nomura Cup history with 10 victories and four runner-up finishes, will be going for another major title at the same club where it captured the Eisenhower Trophy at the 1996 World Amateur Team Championship which to date remains the biggest amateur competition ever held here.
The 29th Nomura Cup was originally set to be played at The Clearwater Bay Golf & Country Club in Hong Kong in November 2019 but was rescheduled to June 2020 due to peace and order concerns in the Special Administrative Region of China. Then the Covid-19 pandemic intervened, prompting another delay to June 2021 which was further extended to 2022 because of continued travel restrictions.
Organized by the National Golf Association of the Philippines, the event is sponsored by the MVP Sports Foundation, Smart, PLDT, TV5, PING, the Philippine Sports Commission, the Philippine Olympic Committee, Yamaha, Bettinardi, Gatorade and Hytera.
The other countries competing in this year’s Nomura Cup are Chinese-Taipei, Guam, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mongolia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore and United Arab Emirates.
Each participating country will field three players with the best two scores counting each day. The team and individual with the lowest score after 72 holes will be declared champions of the Nomura Cup.
