Business across the Fylde are being invited to “chip in” for a charity challenge – at the world famous Pebble Beach coastal links in California.

Well, the golfers won’t actually be whisked away for a spot of Californian sunshine - but the next best thing is at luxury hotel Number One South Beach, on Blackpool’s South Shore.

The hotel has an indoor virtual golf suite which it is opening up for the charity foursome competition.

It is the brainchild of hotelier Ben Smith who hopes the golfing challenge will whet the competitive appetite of Blackpool companies who like their golf and raising money for local charities of their choice at the same time.

Ben said: “Players are used to golf days – but ours is an evening event, held indoors, on a world class course, and is a serious competition with lots of fun thrown in! We’d love it to become an annual challenge.”

The nearest the pin foursome will be played on June 13 and July 18, to coincide with the opening rounds of the US Open and the Open Championship. So there’ll be top class live competition to enjoy too.
