Bulldogs’ legend Terry Lamb OAM will tee-off against some of the state’s top golfers in the annual NSW Par 3 Championship at Sefton on Friday 7 April.
This will be the first time Lamb contests the event which has been played at Sefton over the past three years.
"My connection to Sefton Golf Course takes me back to my childhood days," he said.
"When I was 12, my brother and I were given a set of golf clubs for Christmas. Sefton Golf Course had just opened, so we would sneak onto the course and play until we were ordered off."
Lamb, who captained the Bulldogs to a premiership in 1995, said while his league days are well behind him, his golfing days have only just begun.
"I love it. Every shot challenges your mind in a different way," he said.
Administrator, Richard Colley, said the event showcases the high standard of facilities available at Sefton Golf Course, particularly following the recent investment of $633,000 in course and drainage improvements.
The course is a hidden gem with a number of hazards that make for challenging playing conditions," he said.
"It’s going to be an interesting battle to see who comes out on top at the end of the day. Obviously, I hope it’s a local!"
The NSW Par 3 Golf Championship is open to all men, women, seniors and junior players with a current Golf Australia handicap. Entry fee is $20 for juniors and $30 for 18 years and over. Players can secure their spot by calling Sefton Golf Course on 9743 9436.
