Fraser event so mas­sive

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Sport - BY ROBERT MUIR

“We could squeeze a few more groups in – the event is so mas­sive,” Corowa Golf Club head pro­fes­sional Rob Rowe told The Free Press.

“We are su­per ex­cited to have this event. It’s great for the club to show­case what we have.

“It’s a won­der­ful line-up, the sports­man’s night will be sen­sa­tional, the course is in mag­nif­i­cent con­di­tion, it’s all sys­tems go.”

The 2019 co-spon­sored Mizuno and Bet­fair Mar­cus Fraser Am­brose event hits off this Fri­day, via the usual Fri­day Night five-hole shootout, with Meet and Greet Bar­be­cue at 2.30pm. Plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties will be avail­able for the young­sters, in­clud­ing the Jump­ing Cas­tle.

Then an ex­pected 720 golfers will, on Satur­day and Sun­day, take to the Corowa Golf Course fair­ways.

The golf pre­sents the pub­lic with a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to see a lot of great golf by the likes of big names Keiran Pratt, Bren­dan God­dard, our own star in­ter­na­tional Mar­cus Fraser and plenty of fine am­a­teur play­ers.

It also pro­vides golf­ing and sport­ing en­thu­si­asts – par­tic­u­larly AFL fans – the rare chance to see a star-stud­ded line-up of celebri­ties play the most played sport in the world.

Af­ter day one’s play, it’s into the golf club for the sports­man’s night. What a night that will be with tour­na­ment or­ga­nizer Shaun (Ma­gro) Whitechurch fir­ing ques­tion af­ter ques­tion at the celebrity stars in­clud­ing Peter Daicos, Keith Greig, John Long­mire, Keiran Pratt and Jack Dick­ins. Auc­tion­eer ex­traor­di­naire John Fraser will be in full flight with a wide range of ex­cel­lent sport­ing me­mora­bilia.

Sun­day’s play will con­clude with pre­sen­ta­tions in the club­house. For hit-off times, re­fer to the Mar­cus Fraser Am­brose Face­book Page.

This week­end’s sev­enth an­nual Mar­cus Fraser Am­brose golf event is very close to full ca­pac­ity.

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