A stellar field of over 80 Professionals will tee it up in the $30,000 NSW Senior PGA Championship to be staged at Mollymook Hilltop Golf Club commencing on Friday 21 October.
Included in the field are Australian golfing icons Peter Senior, Peter O’Malley, Rodger Davis and Michael Harwood.
The 2016 Australian Senior PGA Champion Martin Pettigrew also returns to Mollymook, the course where he claimed his maiden victory on the Ladbrokes PGA Legends Tour.
Supported by the Shoalhaven Council, the NSW Senior PGA Championship highlights a strong run of events along the South Coast of NSW which stretches from St Georges Basin through to Bermagui.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said, “We are delighted that the Shoalhaven is once again hosting the NSW Senior PGA Championship at Mollymook Golf Club. We look forward to welcoming the visitors to our City and showcasing our Shoalhaven hospitality and the Mollymook Milton region.”
Rated number 81 on the Golf Australia Magazine Pubic Access Course Top-100, the Mollymook Hilltop course will provide amateurs and Professionals alike with a strong challenge emphasised by considerable elevation changes and fast greens.
Senior State Manager for the PGA of Australia David Barker was excited at the tournaments prospects explaining:
“This year’s event is shaping up as one of the strongest ever and should create considerable interest in the region. I can’t think of another sport where the public can not just watch, but play alongside these Professional athletes under tournament conditions.”
Spectators are welcome to attend with tee times commencing from 7:00am daily.
