The Marriott Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club has been chosen to kick off a spectacular 24-hour golf extravaganza in aid of the Children’s Charity SPARKS.  Twenty-four lucky golfing enthusiasts will each attempt to raise £500 pounds for the charity, which raises funds for research into childrens’ illnesses through a variety of sporting events, during a 24 Hour Midsummer Golf Challenge on 20th June. 

Following the success of last year’s challenge, SPARKS are offering a select number of golfers the chance to play some of Scotland’s finest courses and raise money for charity during sponsored golf tour.  The players will tee off at the Marriott Dalmahoy’s West Course for a fun and challenging round of night-time golf.  Participants will negotiate the 9-hole course using Glowowl glow-in-the-dark golf balls, torches and coloured light sticks to mark the fairway. 

Competition for the Midsummer Golf Challenge Trophy will then Commence as players move on to the 18-hole Queens Course at Gleneagles for a round a day-time golf.  The tour will continue with a round at the Rosemount Golf Club in Blairgowrie, finishing off at the Murrayshall Golf Course in Perthshire.  A prize-giving dinner will then be held for the exhausted participants at Murrayshall, where the competition trophy shall be presented to the winner. 

Participants can enter the challenge, which was filmed for Sky Sports last year, either as individual golfers or through corporate sponsorship of a client or celebrity.  Alan Rough, formerly a player for Patrick Thistle and Hibernian football clubs and selected to play for Scotland on several occasions, will be participating in this year’s challenge.  There are also opportunities for corporate sponsorship of merchandise, golf holes and souvenir brochure.
