Stawell gears up for big weekend of golf

STAWELL - Big fields are expected when Stawell Golf Club's biggest weekend of the calendar year commences tomorrow.

Tomorrow's stableford event tee off will range anywhere from 11.45am until 12.30pm.

The drawcard event for the weekend is the RACV challenge scheduled for Sunday.

What better way to celebrate Australia Day than a round of golf.

Almost 35 pairs have registered for the round, so it is sure to be a huge day for the Stawell Golf Club.

The RACV Challenge is a fourball best ball aggregate stableford competition with teams of men, women or mixed combinations allowed.

The winning pair will advance to the national final to be held at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.

Much like Sunday's event it will be a shot gun start at 10.30am with registration from 9.15am through til 10.15am.

There will be prizes for nearest the pin and for any one that can manage a hole in one rewards there too.

However, due to the shorter course the hole in one will not be recognised with a mounted ball or board entries.
