MAKE NEW FRIENDS, TAKE HOME MEMORIES.

It is easy to see why it is so easy to make new friends with everyone staying at the 5-star Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort. You’ll find other participants lazing about in the lobby, having breakfast, catching up for a drink or having dinner.

 

Social outings are quickly planned around willing participants. Singles are paired up for golf and quickly feel included in the Go Golfing community. The 4Ball Challenge is a wonderful opportunity for golfers to do what they love – golf – and to get together for some good times.

 

To add to the fun, players will be put together into bigger teams. The welcome dinner sets the tone for an entertaining week as everyone comes dressed in their team colour. On the final night, each team puts together an act – a theme song, poem or jokes – based on team colours. This makes for a memorable evening filled with laughter.

Don’t Take Our Word For It…

Thank you Go Golfing for a highly successful and a thoroughly enjoyable event. From our perspective it was professionally run, outstanding fun and excellent golf was facilitated from a high quality club. Services from the Intercontinental Hotel were excellent and made for a most relaxing holiday. The staff matched the professional approach on display from the Go Golfing crew.

Dallas & Christine Mills

I heard about Go Golfing’s 4Ball Challenge through friends so I decided to see what all the fuss was about, and boy was I glad I did. Go Golfing ensured that everything was looked after right down to the smallest detail. The whole week was marvellous and I would recommend Go Golfing’s unique 4Ball format to all club golfers.
