Defending champions Steve Dixon and Rick Storey of Forest Pines have been favoured with a home draw in round three of the 2012 Telegraph Golf Challenge.
The pair, who won away at Grimsby in round two, face another Grimsby pairing in round three in Mark Williams and Andy Williamson.
Dixon is one of only two players in the men's challenge, which started with 159 pairs, who play off a plus handicap.
The other is Rob Mackey of Laceby Manor who plays off plus one. He and his partner George Mackey also have home advantage in round three against the Elsham pairing of Graham Fairbank and Vernon Kerins 22.
Third round winners in the men's section, which has to be played by August 12, will then be only one step away from a place in the Telegraph Golf Challenge grand finals to be staged at Forest Pines on Thursday, September 27.
The draw has also been made for round two of both ladies and senior sections, with the winners of each going straight through to the finals.
Three former winners are still going strong in the ladies section – and all three have home advantage.
Defending champions June Marshall and Kate Greenwood of Forest Pines won away in round one and are rewarded with home advantage this time against Carol Croft and Patsy Davies of Elsham.
2008 champions Liz Turner of Forest Pines and Ann Marie Coleman of Elsham have a home draw against the Forest Pines pairing of Jenny Swain and Jean Cook.
And twice former winners Cei Chaplin and Jean Walker, also of Forest Pines, entertain the Grimsby pairing of Jane Peacock and Debbie Davison.
Laceby Manor will be guaranteed a place in the first ever senior finals with two of their pairs clashing in round two.
Two other Laceby pairings also have home advantage.
The finalists in all three sections of the Telegraph Challenge will this year have the chance to win a brand new Hyundai i30 car, in a deal sponsored by Read Hyundai of Grimsby, for the first hole-in-one at the par three seventh on the Pines section of the course.
