Entries open for 2012 Australian Men’s Senior Amateur Golf Championship

THE Australian Men’s Senior Amateur Golf Championship returns to Victoria for the first time since 2007 this year and is highly likely to attract a capacity field.

Entries with Golf Australia have now opened for the championship, to be played at the Yarra Yarra Golf Club on the Melbourne sandbelt from September 4 – 6.

Defending champion and three-time winner is NSW’s Stefan Albinski who will be a hot favourite to claim his fourth title.

However, Albinski will face strong competition from the likes of fellow New South Welshman and two-time champion Denis Dale and Queensland’s Peter King.

The event is open for players aged 55 years and there is a handicap limit for 2012 of 9.4.

The championship is contested over 54-holes stroke play and concludes with a Presentation Dinner on Thursday evening.

With the event returning to Victoria for the first time in five years, added to the popularity of golf in the sandbelt, the maximum field is likely to be reached in quick time so those considering entering should register as soon as possible.

The Australian Senior Amateur Golf Championship is in its 32nd year and is regarded as the country’s premier men’s senior amateur golfing event.
