IT will be a case of quality, not quantity for tomorrow’s Central Western District Golf Association grass greens championship.
Just over 30 players have entered the annual 18-hole tournament to be played at Duntryleague tomorrow.
CWDGA secretary Peter Mitchell said many of the region’s top players had entered, but there weren’t as many off higher handicaps.
“It’s been very poorly supported,” Mitchell said.
“I don’t think we’ve got anyone from Wellington, Mudgee or Wentworth playing on Sunday.”
Top players such as Duntryleague’s Robert Payne, Rob Parfett and Wayne Carpenter will line up as well as Bathurst’s Paul Bright.
So, the fight for the A grade scratch title will be tough.
Mitchell said there were prizes for A and B grade scratch and handicap winners and runners-up, so those off higher handicaps were still a chance of taking home a prize.
The champion of club champions is also incorporated into the event.
This means the club champion with the best score is the champion of club champions.
“So if Payney plays and he’s the only club champion there, he’ll automatically be the champion of club champions,” Mitchell explained.
Mitchell said scheduling was tough.
“Duntry, Bathurst, Ex-Services and Wentworth all have their club championships prior to winter,” he said.
“Wellington, Forbes, Dubbo and Cowra have theirs after winter. We need to find a happy medium whereby we can find a suitable date where it’s not too cold, but everyone can play.
“We’ve got our AGM on November 6, so we’ll have to talk about a date there.”
Mitchell said there were plenty of spaces available for tomorrow’s tournament for those who would like to compete.
