Entries open for NSW Sand Greens Championship
THE 2011 NSW Sand Greens Championship, incorporating the 2011 NSW Junior Sand Greens Championship and the 2011 NSW Sand Greens Teams Event, is being held at Portland Golf Club on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October 2011. The Championship is open to male amateur golfers with a handicap of 27.4 or under, and will be played over two rounds of 18 holes.
2010 Winner, Dubbo’s Matthew Gleeson, will again be back to contest the title. Gleeson will be joined by many from the region, ranging from the serious to social golfer.
Golf NSW Events Manager, Christy Collier, commented on the culture of the event.
“Although it’s a Championship event, the Sand Greens is very much about bringing together players from all over regional NSW to meet a few new people, play a few rounds of golf and enjoy a drink together at the end of the day. There’s a great sense of camaraderie amongst the participants, and it’s just a really enjoyable event. “
The Championship includes the popular team’s event whereby teams of three compete, with the two best nett scores each day counting towards the team total.
