THE top players in the Western Division will grace the Nadi Airport Golf Club course tomorrow for the 18 holes mixed stableford event.

A new format will be utilised in the competition with the golfers playing the back nine holes twice.

National squad members Baarroon Hussain, Anuresh Chandra, Abid Hussain and Roneel Prakash will be vying for the title.

Nadi Airport Golf Club president Chandra Segran Pillay said attractive prizes had been lined up by the sponsors Horizon.

Pillay said the tournament was open to members of other clubs.

"We are requesting our members to pay their yearly subscription early," he said.

"Members from other clubs are interested in playing in the mixed stableford tournament. Their participation will make it more challenging.

"Only the back nine holes will be used. The male golfers will start from the white tee in the first round.

"They will use the blue tee in the second round. The ladies will start from the white tee in both rounds."

The club faced a lot of financial difficulty last year with drop in membership. The annual general meeting was postponed twice.

Pillay said new people were interested in running the affairs of the club.

"The AGM will be held next Sunday where the office bearers for the 2014 season will be elected."

Tomorrow's event will tee off at 8am.
