GOLFING pub teams across Britain are being invited to tee off in style this month as part of one of the UK's largest amateur golfing tournaments.

A nationwide competition is being staged by Britain's best-selling premium cask beer, Bass Ale, together with licensed trade newspaper, The Publican. Around 7000 amateur golfers are expected to take part in the event which will comprise over a 100 days of golf from now until June.

Any pub can enter a team of four golfers into a first-stage series of area heats which will be played in March. Successful teams will then go on to play area finals, the winners of which will compete in regional play-offs in May and June in the South East, Midlands, Wales, North, Scotland and South West.

The tournament will culminate in June when the regional finalists bid for golfing glory in an all-expenses paid national final in Vilamoura, Portugal.

Bass shares the qualities of tradition and heritage with golf and has always been a firm favourite at the 19th! This tournament is a unique opportunity for local golfers to play at some of the UK's finest courses and get the chance to visit a superb, international course in Portugal,' said Jillian Perks from the Bass Ale Brand Team. 'We're delighted to be supporting the game of golf at a local level across the country and are looking forward to some great golf matches over the coming months.'

Entry forms for the competition are being sent to more than 50,000 pubs and clubs across the country. Additional forms can be obtained from the tournament organisers on 01458 241778.
