THE final leg of the Pacific Harbour Gold Rush tournament will be held at the Pearl Championship Golf Club course next week.

With three different winners from the first three tournaments, the organisers are expecting golfers to come out firing with their best shots in the final leg to win the gold bar as the top prize.

Local golfer Paul Gil won the first tournament on his home course. National rep Olaf Allen Jr scooped maximum points in the second leg.

Abid Hussein was at the helm in the third tournament.

National golfing coach and Pearl Championship Golf Club manager Graeme Bell said the final tournament would be exciting to watch.

"For the first three tournaments, we have different winners so anyone can win the final event," he said.

Hussein leads the accumulated points with 1095 followed by Allen Jr on 1020.

Gill, is third with 970, Andrew Cummings and Keith Coltart follow on fourth and fifth positions with an equal score of 930.

Bell said anyone could walk away as the winner. He said the winner of each tournament collected 500 points.

"It is still open, anyone can win the event. I believe all golfers are not far off in the points table so we can expect upset from anyone."

He said the tournament prizes included Captain Cook day cruise, golf clubs and bags, various resort accommodation and food and refreshments.
