The 6th Bulgarian Golf Association President's Cup will take place in the first days of March - 2nd to 6th. Traditionally, the tournament season for the Bulgarian golfers starts with this prestigious competition in which the team of the President Krassimir Guergov competes against the team of BGA Secretary General Seth Underwood. 12 players each, determined by lot, will participate in each team. After the previous five editions of the tournament, the President's team leads 3 to 2 after winning in two consecutive years - 2009 and 2010. That is why this year's event is seen as an opportunity for the Secretary General's golfers to equalise the score.

A mind-boggling new course has been selected as a scene of the clash - Elea Golf Club in the Cyprus city of Paphos. The course designed by the famous golfer Nick Faldo was opened four months ago and, besides with the name of its architect, it also attracts with its generous Mediterranean sun and challenging layout.

The tournament format also remains unchanged - four rounds in a match-play format will be played. The first round with be Foursomes at 9 holes, the second and third ones - 4 Ball Better-Ball at 18 holes, and the final round will determine the better in individual matches.
