Golf clubs that qualify for our National Final at Turnberry will be represented by 5 club members & their club Captain

 

The National Golf Club Challenge is the UK’s largest amateur charity golf competition – the aim of which is to bring thousands of golfers together on their own Golf Courses throughout the UK in May, June & July, in an unprecedented show of support for our wounded servicemen and women.

 

The National Golf Club Challenge works in partnership with On Course Foundation and has the charity’s full backing. The aim of the National Golf Club Challenge is quite simple:

 

  • To unite golfers all over the UK in honour our fallen heroes, whilst helping members of the Armed Forces injured in the line of duty.

  • To collectively raise as much money as possible to support the wonderful work of On Course Foundation.

  • To give golfers of all abilities the opportunity to play in a National Golf Club Competition giving them the opportunity to compete against other golfers from other golf clubs from all over the UK – concluding in a National Final at Turnberry where the winning golf club is crowned as the National Golf Club Challenge Champions winning the coveted Lee Westwood Cup.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS

  • The National Golf Club Challenge invites every golf club in the UK to host a qualifier event at their golf club and fundraise for On Course Foundation, returning their top 5 Stableford scores from both the Men's and Ladies Sections from any event held during the Official Qualification period, between May 1st through to July 31st

 

  • Fundraising can be done at any point in the lead up to, on the day of the club's qualification event – and even all year round.

 

  • Scores returned need to be in the Stableford format. A golf club can and has the option to use a pre-existing medal event to use as a qualification event with these scores subsequently converted into Stableford format to allow participation.

 

  • The National Golf Club Challenge is split into a Men’s event and Ladies event – with two separate scores returned from each golf club that holds a mixed or separate event.

 

  • The top 5 scores from the MEN’S section and top 5 LADIES scores will then count as the club's official aggregate score for both the Men’s and Ladies sections. Each club's official aggregate score will be counted against standard scratch and Par.

 

  • Each club who has formally entered the Challenge will be required to return their top 5 men’s Stableford scores and the top 5 ladies scores (if mixed event held) to the challenge organisers (on the official results form) together with the fundraising cheque.

 

  • Please note: Golf clubs are not required to enter both the men's AND ladies section. Clubs are welcome to enter the men's section only or ladies section only if needed.
