Tournament. With the sea breeze blowing over the banks of the golf course, Stanley’s premier events will tee off from next week.
The Stanley Golf Club and Stanley Veterans Golf Group will host the region’s most coveted competitions in the coming weeks.
The veterans club will hold the WT House Betta Home Living Annual Tournament next Thursday (October 25).
Open to members of the Northern Tasmanian Veterans Golf Association, a full field of 104 golfers across three age groups and three handicap divisions will take to the 18 hole event.
Teeing off at 8am, locals Michael Butler, Tim McLaren, Bruce Glann and Don Bugg with Penguin’s Shane Close are among the golfers to watch.
“It’s a friendly competition but fierce,” says secretary Percy Monson, laughing: “There are no friends on the golf course.”
Spectators are invited along to watch a good day out on the green.
The following weekend, Stanley Golf Club will host the JSJ Seafood Nut Cup and Stanley Cabin and Tourist Park Four-Ball-Best-Ball.
As registrations continue to come in from across the state, the club is expecting a full field in the 4BBB on Saturday November 3 and the Nut Cup on Sunday November 4 and Monday November 5.
A strongly contested event, the annual tournament attracts a sponsorship of more than $3000 and the best of the best in Tasmanian golfers.
New to the annual event, the club is introducing the JSJ Seafood Crayfish Shoot Out to the competition. Following the 4BBB, participants will take turns to attempt an 80 to 90 metre set shot on the ninth hole. The closest shot will win a spectacular spread of seafood.
