(Competitions in the North West and Scotland to be confirmed shortly).

Clubs will be competing for a place in the Grand Final at the Forest of Arden Golf Club, Warwickshire on 7-8 October.

Now in its tenth year, the 2000 Ladies Golf Classic promises to be the best and biggest yet. For the first time Scottish Clubs have been invited to compete and all income raised in Scotland will benefit Children 1st, the NSPCC's sister charity in Scotland.

The 2000 event is sponsored by Nicklaus Golf Equipment and leading golfing holiday tour operator, Specialist. The raffle prize, is a Specialist holiday worth nearly £4,000 at the US Masters, including two rounds of golf at superb Carolina courses nearby.

Last year's competition saw 13,000 entrants from over 400 clubs raise £15,000 for the NSPCC's child protection work.

Clubs still wishing to stage qualifying matches of this Fourball Betterball Stableford competition are asked to play by the end of July. For further information and an entry card please contact Richard Wadsworth at Specialist on +44 (0)1422 846611.
