The 1988 Dunhill Cup was the fourth Dunhill Cup. It was a team tournament featuring 16 countries, each represented by three players. The Cup was played 13–16 October at the Old Course at St Andrews in Scotland. The sponsor was the Alfred Dunhill company. The Irish team of Eamonn Darcy, Ronan Rafferty, and Des Smyth beat the Australian team of Rodger Davis, David Graham, and Greg Norman in the final. (As in the World Cup, Ireland was represented by a combined Ireland and Northern Ireland team.)

Format[edit]

The Cup was played as a single-elimination, match play event played over four days. The top eight teams were seeded[1] with the remaining teams randomly placed in the bracket. In each match, the three players were paired with their opponents and played 18 holes at medal match play. Tied matches were extended to a sudden-death playoff only if they affected the outcome between the two teams.
