The challenge is open to golfers over the age of 18 who have an official GUI or ILGU handicap. You enter online at www.learntogolf.ie. It is also worth your while to read up on the Rules as there are a fair few of them - nothing insurmountable mind you.

While this may be an 'informative' blog, I should take the opportunity to point out that the quality of the courses varies widely. Co. Sligo is sheer class (note: sadly, entry has closed).
