THE Pearl Championship Golf Course is ready to host the first Gold Rush Golf tournament for amateurs in May.
The event at Pacific Harbour will be a one of a kind where the overall winner will take home $40,000.
The first tournament will be held on May 3 before it continues on June 7. The third leg will be staged on July 12 and the final event, where the overall winner will be announced, will be held on August 9.
Tournament organiser Elle Stephenson said they were anticipating a successful outcome when the event concludes in August.
She said the top golfer with the most points accumulated from the four tournaments would walk away with the main prize.
"This will be the first of its kind in Fiji," she said.
"We want to make the organisation a bit different by calling it gold rush where $40,000 will be at stake."
Stephenson said they had received a lot of interest from golfers.
"We want to tell the golf community in Fiji to come and enjoy their time out here.
"We have limited numbers, already some have showed interest to join the competition and we're looking forward to it.
"There are some very good prizes during the first three tournaments but the main prizemoney will be given after the fourth event."
