The event, loosely based on a Ryder Cup format has been hosted in Las Vegas since inception. Each day a different format is played with points for a win or draw. The final day is pure singles matchplay and double points available for each team.
For the first time in the history of the event, Golf Clubs can now participate in this event by running their own qualifying event exclusively exclusively for their club members.
Tournament Director, Patrick Mulcrone said " The Transatlantic Team Challenge has come a long way since the early days and we are very excited about adding the international team element to the tournament. Las year was the first time we opened the doors to other countries. The feedback from both sides was extremely positive. This included teams from UAE, Ireland, Nigeria and UK for 2013 and we would like to extend this even further for 2015 onwards. The door is wide open for other countries to compete in this event and we would welcome any interested party to contact us as soon as possible"
