There are just two weeks to go until GolfSixes, the revolutionary new short form of golf, arrives at Centurion Club from Friday, May 6 to Sunday, May 7, with tickets available now at www.golfsixes.com/tickets

Two-man teams from 16 different nations will compete over six holes with six different personalities at the festival of golf.

Players from Australia, Belgium, Denmark, England, France, India, Italy, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, The Netherlands, USA and Wales will compete against each other for a prize fund of €1 million as the six-hole circuit winds around an activity-packed fan zone.

Hosts Vernon Kay, Anna Whitely, Andrew Coltart, Nick Dougherty and Henni Zuel, and celebrity guest commentators including cricketer Kevin Pietersen and actress, singer and presenter Denise van Outen, will keep fans at the venue and at home up to date with the action.

On Friday May 5, eight celebrities will pair up with GolfSixes professionals to take on the six-hole circuit, which will kick-start a thrilling weekend of European Tour golf.

Tournament co-host – and avid golf fan – Vernon Kay, will be joined by Hertfordshire-born footballer-turned-actor Vinnie Jones and horse racing legend Sir AP McCoy.
