It is time to drag those clubs down from the attic once more as CRN launches its seventh annual Channel Golf Challenge.
On Tuesday, 15 September, the event will further cement its place as yet another must-attend event in the channel calendar.
After the success of last year, the event is again taking place at the luxurious East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa, which features two championship golf courses.
The action happens on the East Course, used for the 1993 and 1994 European Open tournaments. It measures 7,138 yards from the gold tees, part of a colour-coded system that allows both seasoned professionals and less experienced golfers to get the most out of the course.
The East Course also has two loops of nine holes that bring players back to the clubhouse after each nine.
With up to 24 teams of four players taking part, we have managed to secure the whole course again this year for a shotgun start meaning everyone should finish their game simultaneously in time for a sumptuous three-course dinner. Like last year, the best three scores count from each four-ball play.
The venue also boasts a sauna and steam room to help players unwind if the game does not go according to plan, and to allow any non-golfers to relax.
We will continue to award trophies to the second and third-place teams as well as the winner. Other trophies include nearest to the pin, longest drive and hole in one.
CRN publisher Mark Burton said: “It was a great day last year and the setting was fantastic. I’m sure the event will be an even bigger success this year.”
