Golfalot.com, the UK’s leading specialist golf website is now giving players participating in its virtual Golfalot Tour the opportunity to play online at Turnberry's highly acclaimed Ailsa Course, recently announced as the venue for the 2009 Open Championship.
Long regarded as one of the finest courses in the world, the Ailsa came to international prominence with the famous duel between Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson over the four days of the 1977 Open. Polls now regularly acknowledge the Ailsa as one of Britain's top three courses, confirmation that gives it eminence worldwide, with regular rankings within the world's top 20 courses.
The Golfalot Tour is a unique online golf game that enables you to play tournament golf in real time on real courses against real people. You can also play live head to head matchplay against your friends or just practice on any of the Golfalot Tour's 20 courses. Enjoy the fun of following in the footsteps of leading players at world class courses including both courses at Turnberry, Gleneagles, St Andrews Bay or The Oxfordshire.
Tournaments are strokeplay competitions played over a nominated course by a certain date. Each player has to complete the required number of rounds by the Tournament end date. Just like the real golf tours, Tournaments are grouped into Seasons with each one having its own Order of Merit. Order of Merit Points are awarded to the top 75 finishers in each Tournament and at the end of the season the Top 10 players in the Order of Merit win a fantastic prize.
Golfalot.com’s Managing Director Martin Hopley commented, “Golfalot.com would like to congratulate Turnberry on being awarded the Open in 2009. We endeavour to ensure that Golfalot is relevant and up to the minute, so to be able to offer our Golfalot Tour players the chance to play a newly announced Open Championship venue online reinforces this vision.”
