Darren Clarke, Nick Faldo and Peter Alliss are backing the UK’s biggest charity golf event, challenging keen golfers to tackle four 18-hole golf courses in just one day.

Teeing off at sunrise on the longest Friday of the year, June 22, each team of four will need to play 72 holes in 16 hours covering 15 miles of fairways, all in aid of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.

“Playing 72 holes in one day is the ultimate challenge and a great way to really testing your golf skills and stamina,” said Open champion, Clarke.

“Signing up to this event could help to save the lives of thousands of children and adults who often face disability and even an early death.”

Last year’s event raised over £40,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and hundreds of golf courses across the UK have signed up to support the challenge, offering free tee times to participants.

Meanwhile, some great prizes are up for grabs including a golfing holiday and memorabilia including
a specially designed, commemorative pin flag, depicting Faldo’s three Open wins, signed by the golf ace himself.

To sign up your team, visit fourcourseclassic.co.uk or call 020 7803 4830. For just a £25 registration fee, each player will receive their four complimentary tee times, golf kit including balls and a polo shirt, and full fundraising support to help you to raise the minimum sponsorship for £250.
