This week we launch our ever popular Fantasy Golf Challenge for 2019. Amazingly this is our 21st Fantasy Golf Challenge. Hard to believe isn’t. If you’ve been present in every challenge, please make sure to let us know when you send in your entry form. We are absoultely delighted welcome back Faithlegg Golf Club and FBD Hotels as our sponsors for their second year. As it was last year, the weekly prize will be sponsored by Faithlegg Golf Club. Green Fees at the excellent Faithlegg GC will be the prize for each weekly winner, but don’t panic if you’re a member of Faithlegg you will be catered for too. While the weekly prize is the same as last year, there is a change in our overall prize this year. Faithlegg’s new sister FBD hotel, The Heritage in Killenard in Co. Laois will play host to our overall winner and three friends for a great golfing break. The prize will include two nights accomodation with breakfast for four and a round of golf for four at the on-site Golf Club. Our 21st Fantasy Golf Challenge follows similar lines to previous years…in all there are 14 weeks of tournaments on the PGA & European Tours. All you have to do now is select the best team you can and then hope that your chosen golfers do the business. The challenge will follow the same format as usual (see the Terms & Conditions and scoring rules below if it’s your first time) and will run from August 22 (the massive Tour Championship on the PGA Tour & the Scandanavian Invitation on the European Tour) all the way to the RSM Classic and the DP World Tour Championship Tournaments which finish up on November 24.
