MORE than 80 participants will participate in the DHL Global Forwarding Seniors Day competition at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course on Sunday week.

The 55 years and over will be the main category in the 18 holes stroke event.

Entry will be open to other golfers who do not qualify for this category. These players will compete in the 54 years and under category.

Veteran Ram Khelawan who impressed at the inaugural Srixon Cleveland Classic at the Nadi Airport Golf Club last weekend, will be the frontrunner for the overall gross title.

This is after Khelawan finished ahead of a few national elite squad members in the two-day tournament.

Khelawan will face stiff competition from former Ba Open champion Rajen Singh.

Vijay Madhavan, Ram Reddy and Rajesh Prasad will be gunning for the overall nett title.

National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra said more than $1000 worth of prizes would be at stake at the one-day event.

Chandra said most of the national elite squad members would be participating.

"This tournament will serve as an ideal build-up to the Fiji Open which will be held a week later in Suva," he said.

"We are thankful to DHL Global Forwarding country manager Mahen Singh for securing attractive prizes."

Entry fee for the tournament is $95.
