Golfers to try their luck surviving shark alley
A NEW golf tournament is offering amateur golfers the opportunity to take part in an event unlike anything else in Australia.
The inaugural 2019 Shark Attack Golf Tournament will tee off on Sunday March 3 at the Brookwater Golf and Country Club in the first of the four-part qualifying series.
The event is expected to attract amateur golfers from Greater Springfield and beyond to compete in the competition.
Brookwater Golf and Country Club General Manager Declan McCollam said the tournament aimed to provide a unique amateur golf competition while incorporating the "Shark Alley" theme of the golf course.
"We were thinking of different ways to enhance the idea and concept of the golf course as something we could turn into a competition for amateur golfers," Mr McCollam said.
"Lots of golf courses around the world have sections with different names, for example the Bear Trap at the PGA National Tournament in Florida," he said.
"The last four holes at Brookwater have been named Shark Alley which incorporates the theme of the golf course designed by Australian golfer Greg Norman aka the Great White Shark."
The 2019 Shark Attack Golf Tournament will comprise of four qualifying rounds, with the winner of each qualifying round to receive overnight accommodation at Brisbane's new Westin Hotel and a Mercedes Benz car to drive for the weekend compliments of Mercedes Benz Toowong.
Any player who plays Shark Alley, holes 15, 16, 17 and 18 in par or better will receive a Greg Norman Golf Shirt with "I Survived Shark Alley" on it.
The final event held at the end of the year will include the top five qualifiers from each event plus ties, with the overall champion to receive a four-day, all expenses paid trip for two with Hawaiian Airlines to the famous Fairmont Maunu Lani Resort on Hawaii's Kohala Coast.
Shark Attack entry costs $109 and will include a full day of golf, followed by post-golf canapes and two Heineken beers.
