THE organisers of the Gold Rush Golf Tournament are expecting more golfers to participate in the second tournament of the series.
The Gold Rush Series will be played in four tournaments where the overall winner gets a gold bar, valued at $40,000.
The opening tournament of the series was held over the weekend at the Pearl Resort Championship golf course in Pacific Harbour.
Graeme Bell, the Pacific Harbour golf course manager said the event would attract more golfers when the second tournament would be played next month.
"We're expecting more golfers in the next event," he said.
"In the first round, we gave away $10,000 worth of prizes. In every tournament we will be giving away $10,000 worth of prizes so that itself should attract around 75 to 80 golfers in the next tournament."
Bell said 45 golfers enjoyed a wonderful time last Saturday.
"The opening tournament was a success. We thanked everyone that came. I believe they enjoyed their time out there."
Englishman Paul Gil leads the series with 500 points after winning the first tournament. Andrean Cummings is second with 480. The next Gold Rush tournament is expected to be played on June 7, the third on July 12 and the final event is scheduled to be held on August 9.
