Golfers with a current Golf Australia Handicap and fancy a chance to win $100,000, are invited to register for the NSW Par 3 Championships at Sefton Golf Course.
The annual championships will be held on Friday 20 April, at what is the only 18-hole par 3 golf course in NSW.
Mayor Khal Asfour said the event is open to golfers of all ages and abilities, with separate events for men, women, seniors (55 years and over) and juniors (under 18 years).
"Spots in the 140-place field always fill quickly but they are being snapped up extra fast this year," Mayor Asfour said.
"We have $100,000 up for grabs for the first hole-in-one to be scored on the 161-metre first hole during the championships and that’s proving to be a real drawcard.
"However, there is one catch. If a player aces the hole and pockets the cash, they do lose their amateur status for 12 months. But with so much cash on offer, many seem be willing to make that sacrifice if successful."
The cash prize is being provided by Ultimate Security.
"A hole-in-one is certainly possible and we would be absolutely thrilled if someone could achieve it during the championships," said Chief Executive Officer, Nassim Said.
"We think it’s great that golf is not determined by fitness or age, but rather skill. It’s a great social outlet, a great way to de-stress and recharge, while still maintaining a competitive edge."
Players throughout NSW must register for the championships before 7pm Thursday 19 April, by calling 9743 9436 or online at www.golfnsw.org. Registration is just $26.
Light refreshments will be provided free of charge by Coca-Cola while the winners’ and runners-up trophies are supported by local Regents Park food service distributor, Daily Fresh.
Mayor Asfour indicated Sefton Golf Course’s Twilight Golf provides players with an opportunity to test themselves, prior to the championships.
"For just $15 per round, they can practice between 1pm and sunset every day the course is open," Mayor Asfour said.
"Twilight Golf makes the sport very affordable, not only for regular players, but everyone."
