The event’s owners and organisers, Golf Plus Direct, has secured a deal for Your Golf Travel to be the competition’s new title sponsor for 2013/14 as they look to build on their success of the first two years.

The Four Nations Golf Challenge offers golf club members in the UK and Ireland the chance to experience the thrill of representing their country – England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland – in a Ryder Cup-style tournament and, as part of the deal, Your Golf Travel will promote the tournament to its expanding list of customers.

Roger Brady, director of Golf Plus Direct Limited, said: “We are delighted to partner with such a prestigious brand as Your Golf Travel. Not only will their presence benefit the competitors and sponsors in this year’s tournament, but their reputation and position in the golf market will help open new doors and elevate the competition to a new level.”

Andrew Harding, co-founder of Your Golf Travel, added: “The Four Nations Golf Challenge is a great concept and it’s a pleasure to be able to help an already well-established event grow and become even more successful. It’s an affordable, enjoyable competition for golfers of all abilities and one that we believe lots of our clients will be interested in competing in.”

Now in its third year, the Four Nations Golf Challenge is an attractive and exciting annual tournament which gives UK and Ireland golf club members of all standards the rare opportunity to represent their country and experience their own ‘Ryder Cup moment’.

Your Golf Travel’s partnership with the Four Nations Golf Challenge is the latest in an exciting list of new sponsorship agreements that the London-based firm has clinched in the last six months.

European Tour legend Darren Clarke, the company’s new global brand ambassador, is fronting a major television advertising campaign across Sky TV in the opening four months of this year.

Ryder Cup hero Ian Poulter’s clothing company IJP Design has been confirmed as Your Golf Travel’s new official apparel partner while other new partnerships include agreements with the likes of Troon Golf and talkSPORT – the world’s biggest sports radio station.

Your Golf Travel, which was included in the Sunday Times’ Fast Track 100 league table for 2012 for the fourth year running, offers golf holidays and breaks to 22 countries and more than 3,000 destinations worldwide through its website and brochure.

Golf Plus Direct Limited also support amateur golfers through the provision of golf club annual subscription funding.
