Fellow Golfers,
We hope this message finds you and your family safe and well during this difficult time of the COVID-19 Pandemic. As you may understand with the current situation we have made the tough decision to cancel the 1st Annual 3 Brothers Golf Classic - USA set for May 27-31, 2020. Working with the Innisbrook Golf Resort we could not guarantee that the current situation would be resolved by that time frame nor could we guarantee that our international participants would be able to travel to the United States. We fully intend on holding this tournament next May 2021 at the Innisbrook Golf Resort and hope by then the world will be a safer place. Thank you for your understanding and please continue to check our website for updates.


The 3 Brothers Competition was started in September 1978 at the Kenmare Golf Club located in the Town of Kenmare, County Kerry, on the southwest part of Ireland. It was started by a native of Kenmare, the late Frank O Connor, who emigrated to the United States and became a successful lawyer. He saw this event as a way to bring family, particularly brothers, back together once a year to enjoy golf and fellowship. The competition is played over 2 days as a stableford scoring event where the players go out in 3 balls with members of other teams and the best two scoring brothers on each hole are counted. It began with 15 teams in 1978, grew to 40 teams in 1985 and currently enjoys 60 teams competing annually every September with a healthy waiting list. After 42 years bringing brothers together in Ireland, Kenmare Golf Club has given us permission to launch a new competition in May 2020. We hope you will call your brothers and sign up for a truly unique event started in Ireland and brought to America.


Cost to participate is $300 per player which includes playing entry, polo shirt, goody bag and all prizes. Entry fee must be paid before booking a room. Once completed you will receive an email confirmation that you have paid your entry and then a second email notification that you may contact Innisbrook Golf Resort directly to book your room. All players must stay at Innisbrook Golf Resort.


The 3 Brothers Golf Classic – USA is an amateur golf tournament played at the Innisbrook Golf Resort May 29th and 30th, 2020.


Teams consisting of three brothers will play an 18-hole stableford handicapped competition on both days with the best 2 stableford scores at each hole counted for the team. The team with the highest stableford point total will win the competition. All three team members must play both days.

Day 1 will be played on the Copperhead Course which is the home to the PGA Tour’s Valspar Championship.

Day 2 will be played on the South Course.


USGA Rules will govern all play with local acknowledgements posted on the course scorecard and/or on a tournament rules sheet.

All players must provide a current handicap certificate in order to play and for the scores to be recorded for this competition.

Stableford Point System as follows:

Double Bogey – 0 points

Bogey – 1 point

Par – 2 points

Birdie – 3 points

Eagle – 4 points

Albatross – 5 points

Hole-in-one – 6 points

For pace of play pick up your ball and move to the next hole if your net score is double bogey or zero points.


The winning team of the 3 Brothers Golf Classic – USA will be awarded an all expense paid (entry fee, airfare, hotel only) trip to Ireland to play in the 3 Brothers Competition held at the Kenmare Golf Club in September 2020. This is a one-time entrance into the tournament and must be played by the same set of brothers who won.
