Grand finals of 2012 Telegraph Golf Challenge to be staged next week
ALL 32 pairings have now been resolved for the grand finals of the 2012 Telegraph Golf Challenge which will be staged at Forest Pines next Thursday.
It promises to be a day of fierce competition in all three sections, spiced-up this year by the chance to win a brand new Hyundai i30 car for a hole-in-one at one of the par threes.
There will be a new name on the Peter Moore Trophy for men, with holders Steve Dixon and Rick Storey having suffered a surprise defeat in round three.
Their conquerors, Ben Mills and Chris Blow, are one of three pairs from Laceby Manor through to the men's finals.

But it's two other single handicap members from that Grimsby area club who might be the ones to watch.
Mark Allonby, who plays off five, was a winner back in 2008, but he has a new partner in Nigel Foster, who plays off six.
They are the lowest-handicapped pairing in the field of 16 men's finalists, although another Laceby Manor player, Rob Mackey, has the lowest individual handicap of plus one.
There are two pairings each from Grange Park and Holme Hall in the finals, plus two from Forest Pines, Ashby Decoy, Elsham, Immingham, Waltham Windmill, Immingham, Grimsby and Tetney.
The ladies final, for the Telegraph Challenge Trophy, promises to be an intriguing affair with three former winners among the field of eight pairs.
The champions of 12 months ago, June Marshall and Kate Greenwood of Forest Pines, will be back to defend their title.
But pushing them hard will be their club colleagues Cei Chaplin and Jean Walker who have been Telegraph champions twice before.
Also in contention will be 2008 winners Liz Turner, of Forest Pines, and her partner Ann Marie Coleman of Elsham.
Leading the challenge to Forest Pines' domination of the ladies section will be Grimsby pairings Julie Allen/Mary Keal and Elaine Hoggarth/Trish Goodwin.
The new seniors section, introduced for the first time this year, sees two pairings from Holme Hall into the finals.
The six other clubs represented in the seniors final are Grange Park, Elsham, Laceby Manor, Waltham Windmill, Cleethorpes and Market Rasen.
All the finalists at Forest Pines will have the chance to win a brand new Hyundai i30 car, in a deal sponsored by Read Hyundai of Grimsby and Lincoln, for the first hole-in-one at the par three seventh on the Pines section of the course.
Play begins with a shotgun start at 10am followed by a performance from David Edwards and his world famous trick shot show.
There will then be a dinner for all the finalists after which the prizes will be presented by Mark Price, managing director of GSMG.
