Golfers to battle

ORGANISERS of the Pacific Harbour Gold Rush Golf tournament are expecting a mouth-watering clash this weekend in Deuba.

With the third leg of the event, set to tee off at the Pearl South Pacific Championship Golf Course, events coordinator, Elle Stephenson said the third tournament would be one of the best.

The opening tournament was held in May and the second last month.

Stephenson said golfers had gauged their performance with participants from the opening two tournaments and the third would be very competitive.

"The event is gaining the attraction of golfers all over the country," she said.

"We're pleased with the turnouts from the first two tournaments and we're looking forward to another mouth-watering tussle from the participants this weekend."

She said they had received more interested golfers who wished to be part of the event.

The winner of the Gold Bar will be announced at the end of the fourth tournament which will be played next month. However, Stephenson said they had prizes and giveaways for each tournament.

"Apart from the overall winner at the end of the series, we have prizes for each tournament. The final winner will be announced after the fourth leg. Only the golfer with the highest points accumulated from the four tournaments will walk away with the gold bar."

The gold bar is valued around $40,000, the organisers revealed.
