Club golfers are set to battle it out to win a week of golfing luxury as the top prize in a new pairs' competition.
A seven-night, all-inclusive stay for four people including flights is up for grabs in the Gloria Hotels & Resorts UK Pairs Golf Championship 2016 with eight qualifying events being held across the country.
Gloria Hotels & Resorts in Belek boasts two 18-hole championship courses, a nine-hole academy course and top-class practice facilities as part of its lavish five-star complex on the south coast of Turkey, just 45 minutes from the airport in Antalya.
It offers quality accommodation across three resorts, an extensive choice of fine à la carte restaurants, fantastic spa and leisure activities in beautiful surroundings, while the beach and a host of swimming pools are available within the grounds.
Held in association with Elegant Golf Resorts and Monarch, the competition will see teams of two attempting to qualify from eight different host clubs - including Golf at Goodwood, The Mere Golf Resort & Spa, Stoke Park Country Club, Spa & Hotel, Cranleigh Golf & Country Club, Helensburgh Golf Club, The Carrick at Cameron House and Mottram Hall.
The winners will be flying from London Gatwick to Antalya airport in Turkey with scheduled leisure airline Monarch. Antalya is one of more than 40 destinations that Monarch flies to from its five UK bases including London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds Bradford and London Luton, with the airline's scheduled network focusing on beach, city and ski breaks.
Those who make it through successfully will then earn the right to play in the Grand Final at Stoke Park - at no extra charge for the finalists - where a dinner and prize presentation will be held.
The race for a holiday at Gloria will start on May 2 at Golf at Goodwood and the final qualifier will take place at The Mere in August. The Grand Final will take place on Monday, September 26, 2016.
