The Snow Mountain Course at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort will stage a qualifier for the national event – billed as the search for America's best twosome - on April 30. The 36-hole finals also takes place at Paiute on Oct. 21 to 23. The resort has hosted the finals since 2007.

The original Dye-designed championship golf courses at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, Snow Mountain ranks as the most popular layout of three courses there. This 7,164-yard, par-72 golf course features wide, ryegrass fairways and seven holes with water.

The ESPN National Golf Challenge, sponsored by Callaway, is a two-player, better-ball competition with three divisions - gross, net and seniors (age 55-plus). Competitors must have a valid USGA handicap, with a maximum adjusted figure of 24.

Cost for the qualifier is $99 for Paiute Advantage Club Card members and $119 for the general public. The fee includes green fees and cart, a dozen Callaway golf balls and a one-year subscription to Golf Magazine.

For an additional $49, you can partner with each member of your foursome, which essentially triples your chance of winning.

Teams that advance will pay an additional $358 for the regional tournament.
