The 2009 Australian Men’s Mid Amateur Golf Championship, open to golfers aged 30 to 54 with a handicap less than 7.4, will be played from January 20 – 22 at The National Golf Club on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.
The 2008 event was a huge success with Victoria’s Jason Perry finishing strongly to take the title.
As Perry discovered, winning the championship gives a direct exemption to the Australian Open, and next year’s winner will have the opportunity to play in the 2009 Australian Open at the New South Wales Golf Club.
All three courses at the National Golf Club – The Old Course, Moonah and Ocean Courses – will be utillised for the 54 hole event in January.
Golf Australia says the National is a fantastic golfing facility and a one of its kind in Australia that will provide a fantastic challenge for players from all parts of the country.
Trevor Herden, Golf Australia Director of Championships, said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for the golfers in this demographic to test their skills against their peers over three championship courses at one of the best facilities in the country.”
