Presenting the UK's hottest amateur golf tour . This is your chance to win a money-can't-buy golf trip of a lifetime that could end up with you teeing off in the United Arab Emirates next year with the likes of Sergio Garcia, Graeme McDowell and Retief Goosen at one of the most prestigious and exclusive pro-ams in world golf - the Emirates Airline Invitational Hosted by Abdullah Al Naboodah.

How it works :

Regional Qualifiers: The Golden Ticket UK Tour 2012 will take in three spectacular De Vere golf venues. Playing alongside the likes of DJ Spoony, former Celtic and West Ham goalkeeper Allen McKnight, the winner of each event will be flown by Emirates Airline to play in the Golden Ticket World Final at the Official host venue in January 2013 (hotel accommodation included).

UK Final : The mini-tour series will work as a bonus pool with the top 12 players in the Order of Merit going on to shoot it out in a winner-takes-all UK Final staged on the banks of the magical Loch Lomond, at The Carrick Golf Club near Glasgow.

Players will accumulate points and must compete in at least two of the three regional events to become eligible for the Golden Ticket UK Tour Final Shootout.

Format: The format for each event will be 18-holes strokeplay with the winner being the best nett score as per R&A rules. Maximum handicaps of 18 for men and 28 for women apply. Handicap certificates must be sent with the entry form and verified.

Entry Fee: Golden Ticket Regional Qualifier 1 event £125.00

The Golden Ticket Tour 2 events £250.00

3 events £325.00

There is no additional fee for the 12 players qualifying for the UK Final.

Entry fee includes breakfast on arrival and hot buffet at the prize-giving ceremony following each event. As well as places in the World Final and the UK Final in Scotland a host of top prizes will be up for grabs at each event while each competitor will receive an exclusive goodie bag.

World Final: The winner of the World Final held in the UAE will receive the Golden Ticket to play with the stars of The European Tour in the highly acclaimed invite-only Emirates Airline Invitational hosted by Abdullah Al Naboodah, with the professionals competing for a $500,000 purse. The pro-am will also be broadcast on sports TV networks all around the world.

Charity: Emirates Airline Invitational UK Golden Ticket Tour 2012 is in aid of the highly worthy charity, the Jude Brady Foundation, which raises money to support families who experience stillbirth and neonatal death.

DJ Spoony: "I can't wait for the Golden Ticket Tour, it's a chance for amateurs to play in a real Tour-style format with a truly unforgettable prize at the end of it. The Emirates Airline Invitational is an event everybody wants to play whether they're celebrities, sportsmen or high-flying businessmen, but you can't get in unless they invite you! With four trips on offer and 12 places at The Carrick up for grabs I don't think there's another amateur tour in the UK to touch it."
