A sixth-dan karate blackbelt, a chef who was once employed by Robert de Niro, a midwife, and a train driver are among the amateur golfers heading out to Morocco next month on an expenses-paid trip of a lifetime to compete in the grand final of the 2016 Morocco Matchplay, powered by HowDidiDo.

Four competitions culminate at the grand final, which takes place from February 7-10 in Marrakech and which is sponsored for a third year by the Moroccan National Tourist Office (MNTO): singles, pairs, mixed pairs and senior pairs. Each finalist will have played up to four qualifying rounds merely to reach the regional final, with the knockout rounds taking place between June and September, and the regional finals in October.

All will all enjoy complimentary return flights from Gatwick to Marrakech, courtesy of the event's partner British Airways; five nights' luxury bed-and-breakfast accommodation in the five-star Palmeraie Palace; four rounds of championship golf on the Robert Trent Jones-designed PalmGolf Marrakech Palmeraie; a welcome cocktail reception; and a last-night gala dinner and prize presentation.

HowDidiDois Europe's largest golfing community, holding in excess of 21 million rounds of golf along with the handicaps, results and scores of more than 1,300,000 UK golf club members. Around 2,000 golf clubs and more than 460,000 golfers currently use the HowDidiDo system.
