The event will be based at the five-star InterContinental Hotel in Mar Menor in Murcia, Spain, and will include four rounds of competitive golf on Jack Nicklaus courses at Mar Menor, El Valle and Hacienda Riquelme. The 2012 Challenge builds on the success of two previous events and a winning mix of competition, friendship, fun and sun. It offers five nights at the InterContinental Hotel, a 64-bedroom boutique hotel with a Moorish-themed spa, indoor pool and fitness suite; four days of competitive golf; a Gala Dinner and prize giving, all for £570 per person. The first two Challenges have prompted enthusiastic praise from players and bookings are already being taken for this year’s event. Last year’s overall winner was Judie Lewis from Hockley in Hampshire who declared at the time: “This week has been fantastic, we’ve had a wonderful time. The girls are all very friendly and it’s lovely to play golf with women like this – you become such good friends straight away. “There’s a great mix of people and handicaps right across the board and we have had great fun. I can highly recommend it.” Click here for full details and to book.
