NATIONAL reps Roneel Prakash and Olaf Allen Jr will be aiming for their fifth consecutive title when they participate in the Srixon Cleveland Fiji Amateur Golf Foursomes Championship this weekend.

The duo go into the 36 holes event as the favourites at the Fiji Golf Club. Allen Jr will hold the advantage playing on his home turf.

The Grid Security Services director has been in top form recently carding under par scores during the Summer Cup competition.

Both players are in the national training squad preparing for the World Amateur Teams Championship in Japan in September.

They will face stiff competition from the father and son combination of Baarroon and Abid Hussain.

Bothers Munesh and Praneel Prasad will be targeting their first win.

Airports Fiji Limited fireman Anuresh Chandra will pair up with Vijay Krishna Singh.

Raymond Singh and James Krishna hold the record in the competition winning it on eight occasions.

National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra said the event was returning to the Vatuwaqa course after five years.

Chandra said expectations were high with the course undergoing maintenance in December.

"We would like to thank our sponsors Srixon Cleveland for their continued support," he said.

"We are expecting a tight finish on Sunday with all the national squad members participating.

"The national squad trials will be held in Nadi next week, so the boys know a lot is at stake.

The Foursomes is an annual event hosted by the parent body where two players combine and play alternate shots over 36 holes.

The pair with the lowest gross score is crowned the winner.

Entries for the event close on Thursday.

The entry fee is $80 per pair.
