Your Country Needs You! Sign Up for a "Ryder Cup Moment"
November 11, 2010

What pride and passion we all witnessed at Celtic Manor! Now it's the turn of Club Golfers of all standards to experience the emotion of a "Ryder Cup moment" and represent their Country in the 2011 Four Nations Golf Challenge!

The Four Nations Golf Challenge, potentially the most exciting pairs competition for amateur club golfers ever devised, offers the mouth-watering prize of a "Ryder Cup" style finale on one of Europe's most challenging courses.

Open to men and ladies, The Four Nations Golf Challenge will culminate in a Grand Final to be contested by four teams of 12 players representing England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales at The Oxfordshire Golf Club in the Chiltern Hills from 25 - 28 September, 2011.

To earn their chance to represent the Champion Golf Nation of the Year, a pair will need to win a maximum of four four-ball, better-ball matches, starting in May, in regional brackets consisting of 16 pairs each. If necessary, depending on the number of entries, a one-day final qualifying event will be held to decide which six pairs will represent their country in the Grand Final.

Roger Brady, Director of organisers Concierge Golf, said: "Even though several national knock-out competitions for amateur golfers take place each year, there are none, as far as we are aware, that offer the chance of an 'international team' appearance to club golfers of all standards."

The cost of entry is just £20 per person (£40 per pair).

The Oxfordshire, a spectacular rolling layout designed by Rees Jones and owned by the Leaderboard Group which also includes Chart Hills, Dale Hill and Sandford Springs, opened its own state-of-the-art four- star hotel last May and every Grand Final participant will stay free of charge throughout the four days.

Since opening in 1993, The Oxfordshire has hosted the Anderson Consulting World Matchplay, the Ladies English Open, and from 1996 to 1999 it was the venue for the Benson & Hedges International Open. The latter boasts an enviable list of winners including Colin Montgomerie, Bernhard Langer and Darren Clarke. The Oxfordshire will provide a proven setting for club golfers to experience the passion and thrill of playing for their countries for the first time.

As Roger Brady says: "Just think: it could be you on the last day, all square in the deciding match, your team-mates behind the final green willing you on to hole the putt that gives your country victory! Where else could you feel that 'Ryder Cup moment'?"

Entries are open to every golfer with a CONGU 'active" handicap and will close on 30 April, 2011.
