THE National Golf Association of Fiji will host a four-person mixed Ambrose fundraising event at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course on August 30.

The event will be to collect funds for the national team to participate at the World Amateur Teams Championship in Japan next month.

The championship is organised by the International Golf Federation and will feature a total of 75 countries.

Fiji is the only Pacific Island nation to participate in this prestigious championship.

Association secretary Amitesh Chandra said the funds raised would be used for the team expenses while in Japan.

In the last championship in 2012 in Turkey, Fiji was ranked 52 out of 72 countries.

Sam Lee, Olaf Allen Jr and Abid Hussain will represent the nation at this year's championship. Team entry for the fundraiser is $500.
