GOLF will be one of the major sports on the program at the 7th Pan Pacific Masters Games to be held on the Gold Coast from 6 to 14 November this year.
Organisers are hoping to lure as many golfers aged 30 and over as possible to compete in the 2010 event and immerse themselves in the international sporting atmosphere.
In all, there will be 34 sports on the program, with more than 10,000 people from all over the world expected to converge on the Gold Coast to participate.
The Pan Pacific Masters Games is billed as a celebration of master’s sport with both fierce and friendly competition and a jam-packed entertainment program at the Games Village at the end of each day.
The golf events will be located at Robina Woods and The Colonial Golf Resort.
Australian entrants must have a Golf Australia handicap and must supply evidence of their exact handicaps to golf officials prior to their first event. International competitors must present their Slope Handicap Index (not club handicap).
All sports are located in close proximity to the Games Village at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach.
The Games Village will feature the registration centre, merchandise, live nightly entertainment, fully catered hospitality and an exclusive venue for competitors to meet up and enjoy the spirit the event is known for.
Being held on the Gold Coast also means that participants can enjoy the golden sands of the surf beaches, choose from a huge range of accommodation for all budgets, visit the exciting theme parks and relax at some great restaurants, bars and cafes.
