Neangar Park Golf Club is set to host Australia's best up and coming Professional golfers at the Evolution Copy Print Solutions Neangar Park Pro-Am this month.
With a prize purse of $11,000, a strong field is expected to contest the second staging of the tournament with local Tour Professional Christopher Mueck, 2014 Western Australian PGA Champion Ryan Lynch and 2015 QLD Open Champion David Bransdon already submitting their entries.
The picturesque layout was a hit with the Professionals following last year's inaugural event, with a course that provides a stern test with its combination of dogleg holes and well protected greens.
The Evolution Copy Print Solutions Neangar Park Pro-Am further boosts the promotion of the game of golf, along with playing and earning opportunities for the country's many Professionals.
"Following the success of last year's event, we are looking to grow the event into the future, along with the possibility of an additional event in the area," said Cameron Davies, PGA Tournament Coordinator.
January is shaping up to be a bumper month for the Choice Hotels PGA Pro-Am Series, Neangar Park joins seven other clubs to host an event in the lead up to the Victorian Open and Victorian
PGA Championships in early February 2016.
"I would like to commend the City of Greater Bendigo for their support along with the Neangar Park Golf Club for the hard work already completed to secure the Pro-Am," said David Tapping, Southern Division State Manager at the PGA of Australia.
"It's important that opportunities be made available for sportspeople to progress and develop in their chosen field, this tournament is highly valued as one of numerous high calibre sporting events that the City supports as part of our charter to provide opportunity to a broad cross section of sports competitors. The club has been integral in securing and staging this event which will bring much joy to the golfing community" said City of Greater Bendigo Major Events Manager Terry Karamaloudis.
Spectators and interested parties can contact the club General Manager Nic Blake at firstname.lastname@example.org, to attend the Evolution Copy Print Solutions Neangar Park Pro-Am on Friday 29th January.
