The QLD Swing of the E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour has moved its way from the regional communities on the Darling Downs and South Burnett to Hervey Bay for one of the marquee events on the schedule.
The Fraser Coast Classic is one of the most popular on the swing and players such as Wayne Grady, Rodger Davis, Mike Harwood, David Merrriman and past champions Mike Zilko and Hugh Dolan return to compete for the $20,000 prize purse.
Defending champions Tim Elliot and Peter Hayes will also be keen to take out the coveted title of Fraser Coast Legends Classic Champion.
"It's a great event that has a very unique atmosphere. It's fantastic to get so much support from not only the Hervey Bay Golf Club members but also the general public that enjoy coming to watch," said Elliot.
"There are some very high calibre players in the field who have been competing overseas before coming home to play these events. It should be a good contest."
The E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour is for professionals golfers over-50 years of age and 2015 has seen a new generation of players come of age and looking to make their name on the Tour.
Players to look out for are Victorian Michael Barry who has won six times in his rookie season this year along with Glenn Joyner who along with others in the field has returned recently from competing in the British Senior Open.
The two day tournament will commence on Saturday 15th August with the players looking to establish some good scores in what is expected to be good weather conditions.
Spectators are welcome and will be able to witness some of the best senior golfers.
