The Ultimate Golf Challenge calls all golfers to play 72 holes (4 rounds) in their team of 4, in any 24 hour period between May and August at a golf course of their choice. The top 18 fundraising teams will progress through to The Finals of The Ultimate Golf Challenge, which will take place in September 2019 at Caldy Golf Club, on the Wirral. Here the 18 teams will get to experience ‘A day in the life of a professional golfer’ in partnership with Playfair golf events. All finalists will also receive complimentary VIP tickets to the gala dinner at Wirral’s only 5 star venue, Hillbark Hotel, in October. To take on this challenge, participants will need a team of four, a tee time at their course of choice. Golf is a sport synonymous with the Wirral and many golf courses have signed up to support the challenge and will offer discounted green fees to anyone taking on The Ultimate Golf Challenge.
