AROUND 60 golfers will bat­tle it out for top hon­ours in the 2011 Sea Tem­ple Open this week­end.

The 36-hole tour­na­ment will tee-off on Satur­day and fin­ish on Sun­day with a fi­nal pre­sen­ta­tion lunch and a chance for win­ners to be awarded their prizes.

Sea Tem­ple golf op­er­a­tions man­ager David Roche said ev­ery­one is wel­come to com­pete but you have to sign on be­fore to­mor­row af­ter­noon.

“It is a tour­na­ment for golfers mostly in and around the re­gion with 60 peo­ple com­pet­ing so far and com­ing from as far away as Bris­bane,” he said.

“Peo­ple should join in be­cause it is two days of golf on a fan­tas­tic golf course and a chance of be­com­ing the Sea Tem­ple Cham­pion of 2011.

“It’s a chance to test your golf­ing tal­ent against the best golfers in the re­gion.”

The gross win­ner will be crowned the Sea Tem­ple cham­pion and there will also be prizes for net win­ners in both the men’s and women’s di­vi­sions.

“The prizes in­clude golf­ing prod­ucts, golf bags, club shirts, vouch­ers for ac­com­mo­da­tion and spa pack­ages for the ladies,” Roche said.

“And the tro­phy for the men’s win­ner and the ladies’ win­ner will be handed out dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion lunch on Sun­day.”

Part of the pack­age of the Open in­cludes a hearty lunch be­fore tee-off at 12.30pm on Satur­day and then the lunch with the pre­sen­ta­tion on Sun­day and the bar will be open for all thirsty golfers.

Roche en­cour­ages ev­ery­one to com­pete for a great game of golf and a chance to pro­mote and sup­port our re­gion.

“The Sea Tem­ple Open helps to pro­mote golf in Far North Queens­land to a wide au­di­ence,” he said.

“Peo­ple come up and com­pete and will go back to their re­spec­tive clubs and pro­mote the re­gion - it is good for Port Dou­glas.”
