Star stud­ded line-up for Fraser event

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) CLASSIES - BY ROBERT MUIR

A star stud­ded foot­ball line-up in­clud­ing John Long­mire, Peter Daicos and dual Brown­low Medal­ist Keith Greig will com­pete in the 2019 sev­enth an­nual Mar­cus Fraser Am­brose golf event on Satur­day and Sun­day, Jan­uary 5 and 6.

That’s just the start! Also to ap­pear in the ma­jor spon­sor Mizuno event on the beau­ti­ful Corowa Golf Course will be come-back pro­fes­sional golfer Keiran Pratt who has beaten Tiger Woods.

Star St Kilda and Essendon AFL foot­baller and golfer Bren­don God­dard will be back as will Rene Kink to join his former team­mate Peter Daicos.

Racing iden­tity – mount­ing yard form ex­pert - Jack Dick­ins will be here. The pro­fes­sional punter from Mel­bourne will also be a wel­come spe­cial guest.

“I’m thrilled with the many celebri­ties we’ve got com­ing who are play­ing and who will all be at the Sports­man’s Night on the Satur­day,” tour­na­ment or­gan­iser Shaun Whitechurch told The Free Press.

“It will be a sen­sa­tional night lis­ten­ing to these big name stars. Mar­cus’s dad John will again be the en­ter­tain­ing auc­tion­eer on the night pre­sid­ing over a lot of won­der­ful mem­o­ra­bilia for sale.

“It’s a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to hear these stars and pick up some great sport­ing items at good prices.”

The usual Fri­day Night five-hole shoot-out with Meet and Greet Bar­be­cue will kick off at 2.30pm.

Plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties will be avail­able for the young­sters in­clud­ing the Jump­ing Cas­tle. There will be some­thing for the whole fam­ily, the or­ga­nizer promised.

But golfers want­ing to play in this pres­ti­gious tour­na­ment of Corowa’s 40-year-old star in­ter­na­tional golfer want to get in quickly.

“En­tries are up on last year’s at the same stage,” ‘Ma­gro’ Whitechurch ad­vised. “I en­vis­age it be­ing booked out by the end of this year.”

Mar­cus Fraser will again look for­ward to re­turn­ing home to the Corowa Golf Course for his an­nual name­sake golf tour­na­ment.
