Mid-amateur title tees off at Caloundra
Mid-handicap golfers have the chance to test their swing and enjoy a sunny break during the inaugural Queensland Mid-Amateur Championships from August 21-23 at the Greg Norman-designed Club Pelican in Caloundra on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.
Former state representatives, ex-professional tour players, and many good club-level players are expected to join the field at the first Australian event of this type.
The event is open to male players aged 30-54 years on handicaps of nine or better who will play over 54-holes of stroke play.
Caloundra Tourism is supporting the championships and believes they will encourage people to experience the attractions of the region while being able to test their skills on one of Australia's best resort courses.
Caloundra Tourism president Mike Wilkinson said the championships were unique and enabled players of mid-amateur level to compete in a high-profile tournament usually reserved for professional-level players.
"A large proportion of club players are in the mid-amateur range and have previously been overlooked in championship events in Australia," Mr Wilkinson said.
"The mid-am format has proved to be popular in the United States and it is a great opportunity for Caloundra to promote our destination to golfers their partners and families.''
The 6359 metre championship course at Club Pelican boasts one of the finest clubhouse and practice facilities in Australia. For more information visit www.queenslandgolf.org.au/midam.
