The ESPN National Golf Challenge presented by Callaway Golf is an amateur two-person better ball tournament designed to find "America's Best 2 Some" in both Gross (handicap not required) and Net (handicap will be used) divisions. Two-person teams from all over the U.S. can register for the Local Qualifier at The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort and attempt to play their way to ESPN's National Finals, also to be held at The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, Oct. 25, 26, 27, 2007.
Teams may consist of any combination of male and/or female participants with a maximum allowable handicap of 24 strokes (in the Net Division). Entry fee for the event is $75 per player, which consists of a $60 required entry fee from ESPN in addition to The Paiute's greens, cart fees, and special services. Players may attempt to qualify for the Regional Finals at as many Local Host Sites as they wish. Gross and Net winners from each Regional Finals location will advance to the 36-hole National Finals at The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. Please visit www.espngolf.com/rules.htm to review the event's Rules and Regulations page for more detailed information.
For the 2007 event, Local and Regional qualifying sites are being registered to accommodate our anticipated participation of over 30,000 golfers. Host Courses are initially allocated 1 Gross and 1 Net team slots in our Regional Finals. Additional regional team entries are available to Local Qualifying Sites as participation warrants. National Finalists will agree to participate in the filming and broadcast of our event in a one hour special broadcast of the ESPN National Golf Challenge Finals on ESPN2.
In 2006, our desire to recognize and reward our Club Professionals for their tremendous support allowed us to create the ESPN National Golf Challenge Club Pro Tournament. Club Pro's from all over the country are invited to attend based on the results of their Local Qualifying events with the ESPN National Golf Challenge. The Club Pro Tournament was also a tremendous success and is now held in conjunction with our National Finals.
