2013 Mornington Peninsula Men’s Matchplay Tournament

Rosebud Country Club 595

THE MORNINGTON PENINSULA is one of Australia’s great golfing regions and it’s always nice to find another reason to visit.

Many who attended the Australian Veteran Golfers Union National Championships in the area last year will fondly remember one of the focal points of that week, the Rosebud Country Club.

Rosebud is stumping up again this year and is holding the Mornington Peninsula Men’s Matchplay Tournament for golfers over 55.

The tournament is a three day affair beginning on Monday September 23rd and concluding Thursday September 26th with a rest day on the Wednesday.

For visitors it will cost $130 which includes three rounds of golf, a welcome breakfast/brunch and a Presentation Lunch. All participants will win a prize.

In conjunction with the Men’s Matchplay, women partners are invited to take part in Club events on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday without paying a green fee.

Free buggies will be available each day and there is reduced motorised cart hire for all players.

You have the free day on the Wednesday to either play in the Rosebud comp or arrange to play at one of the many other great golf courses in the area.

Extend your stay and there is heaps to do and see, either golfing wise or at many of the natural and man-made attractions the area is famous for.

Accommodation is available at the Fairways Resort attached to the club (mention you are playing in the tournament for a special rate) or there are lots of options nearby to suit any budget, including extensive caravan sites just down the road on the shores of beautiful Port Phillip Bay.
