The prize includes flights from London to Faro, four nights bed and breakfast at Le Meridien Dona Filipa hotel in Vale do Lobo,Portugal and three double rounds of golf at the onsite San Lorenzo course. Car hire is provided along with an allowance of £300 to cover meals and incidental expenses.
A leisurely round of golf in warm conditions may seem a long way off.
But Money Marketing, in association with Scottish Provident, can make it happen now for IFAs.
Scottish Provident's IFA Golf 2001 is the ultimate online sporting challenge.
You can enjoy a solo practice round, compete with friends for fun or accept our challenge to compete for top place on the Scottish Provident Leaderboard.
There is more than a personal best at stake. The IFA at the top of the leaderboard on March 31 will win a four-day trip for two to the exclusive Dona Filipa Hotel in the Algarve, with golf on the San Lorenzo, one of Portugal's top golf courses.
The recently refurbished Dona Filipa remains a favourite among British golfers.
It is located near the beach near excellent restaurants, not to mention the fabulous leisure and golfing facilities.
To get started on the Scottish Provident challenge, simply log on to www.ifagolf.co.uk and try a few practice rounds.
When you are confident in your own skills, you can introduce a little healthy competition among your colleagues by challenging a friend by email or live on the web. Playing a hole need only take a couple of minutes.
When you think you are ready to take on the IFA community's answer to Tiger Woods, enter yourself on to the IFA leaderboard and see who gets to the top first.
To make your way up the leaderboard, you have to challenge a player that is no more than five places above you on the board. By beating that person, you will swap places with them. If you lose or draw, you stay in the same position.
You can issue a challenge by clicking on the name of your preferred opponent. An email will then automatically be sent to them as well as a confirmation email to you.
Don't worry if the thought of spending too much time playing golf makes you feel guilty as the game links directly to Scottish Provident's IFA WebCentre offering a range of sales ideas, sales tools and quotation services from the leading protection specialist.
Are you up to the challenge of IFA Golf 2001?
