The HowDidiDo Matchplay Championship - one of the UK and Ireland's leading amateur events for more than 20 years - is to have a new, exotic destination for its grand final in Morrocco.

The grand final - the culmination of four competitions running throughout 2014: singles, pairs, mixed pairs and senior pairs - will now be played in the historic and spectacular country from February 8-14, 2015.

A total of 32 golfers, from across the UK and Ireland, fighting it out for the titles.

Those 32 lucky - and determined - golfers will have battled their way through a minimum of four local contests and a regional final, in October, to earn the right to head to Morocco and they will each receive complimentary flights, six nights' luxury accommodation and five rounds of championship golf on fabulous courses, after the tournament received the full support of the Moroccan National Tourist Office.

The Moroccan National Tourist Office's director for UK and Ireland, Amine Boughaleb, said: "It is fitting that in the 100th year of golf in Morocco we have secured the grand final of one of the UK and Ireland's biggest amateur events for club golfers. We had seen and heard a lot about the Matchplay Championship and are looking forward to welcoming the 32 finalists to our beautiful and inspiring country and working alongside HowDidiDo.

"We are proud to be the new home of the Morocco Matchplay, powered by HowDidiDo. Morocco has 29 golf courses to be enjoyed in year-round sunshine - plus 11 more under construction - and, with flight times of less than three-and-a-half hours from the UK and Ireland, it is a hugely attractive alternative to the more traditional golf destinations of Europe."

The competitions are open to both men and women, while seniors need to be aged 50 or over on May 26, 2014, when entries to all the events will close.

HowDidiDo's database now holds 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.
