ENTRIES are still open for the 2011 Australian Women’s Senior Amateur Golf Championship to be held in October in Toowoomba but you need to be quick.
The championship is in its 25th year and will be held at the picturesque Toowoomba Golf Club at Middle Ridge from 24-28 October 2011.
The official cut off time for entries is next Monday September 26.
Entries have been received from competitors Australia wide with last year’s Champion Robyn Puckett from the USA returning to defend her title.
Six-time Champion Sylvia Donohue from NSW is also returning and is aiming for her seventh title, whilst local former Champions Wendy O’Connell and Josie Ryan are sure to put up a fight to ensure the trophy remains in their home state.
The Toowoomba course is one of Queensland and Australia’s finest inland golf courses and has been ranked in the top 20 in Queensland by Australian Golf Digest. After the devastating events of earlier this year in the region, the city and the club will appreciate the support.
Don’t forget if you bring a friend who did not play in the event in 2010, 2009 or 2008, or introduce a new friend to the championship, you will both go into the draw to win a $300 voucher for dinner at the bistro of Toowoomba Golf Club.
Get a group of friends together and enter now for a fun and social week and the chance to become a national champion.
The entry fee is $105 and competitors receive a player gift, and entry to a Welcome Cocktail Party.
