PAUL Gil has taken an early lead in the Gold Rush Golf tournament in Pacific Harbour's Pearl Resort golf course yesterday.

The Englishman had a score of 69 nett to win the opening tournament of the series which will be played in a four-month duration.

Gil who is playing on his home course bagged 500 points for finishing as the top golfer among the other 44 participating amateur golfers. Gil topped the C-grade golfers.

Finishing second at the tournament was Andream Cumming who had a score of 72. Cumming collected 480 points and is also the B-grade winner. David Voss, Fred Voshoh, Hugh Ragg, Peter Crawford and Dr Nadan were all tied at 73.

Voshoh won the A grade while Crawford and Voss finished second behind Cumming in the B-grade.

Dr Nadan and Ragg were second and third respectively to Gil in the C-grade. Robert William was second in the A-grade.

Pacific Harbour Golf Course manager Graeme Bell said the opening event ended on a high note.

"It is a well organised event where everyone enjoyed their time out here," he said.

"The course was in great condition so we're expecting more golfers to turn up in the second tournament."

The overall winner of the series will take home a gold bar worth $40,000.

The second tournament will be played 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.
