The 11th and 12th of July 2014 will see the return of the 'Ultra Golf de Chamonix'.
The Chamonix golf course will host this competition in a stunning setting at the base of the Mont Blanc range.
36 holes in 2 days
The format is two players per team and three rounds of golf over two days: 36 holes on Friday 11 July and 18 holes on Saturday 12 July.
The first round is a 'Scramble' format, with both players restarting from the best lying ball after each shot. The second round on Friday is a 'Four Balls, Best Ball' format. The final round on the Saturday takes each individuals score combined.
These formats mean you need to think hard about your tactics and the relative strengths of each player. It's certainly a challenge unlike any other - and in a beautiful location.
The 'Ultra Golf de Chamonix' can be entered online at the official website.
