Golfers head to Dubbo for prestigious Aboriginal challenge

DUBBO Golf Club is once again hosting the prestigious NSW Aboriginal Golf Championships this week.

This is the second year they have hosted the event and entrants will travel from across NSW to challenge themselves on the championship course over a 36-hole stroke event.

The event is run by NSW Aboriginal Golf Incorporated in conjunction with Dubbo Golf Club and the major sponsor is the NSW Aboriginal Land Council.

"The club is very honoured to host the event for another year and look forward to some great golf over the two days with the course in fantastic condition and a real test," Christian Hampson said, Aboriginal director with the club.

"It is also a great opportunity to catch up with family and friends from around the state and share some golf yarns during the two days.

"I hope everyone enjoys our facilities and all that Dubbo has to offer as a city."

Last year's champion was Michael Bell from western Sydney, who has strong family ties to the central west.

He will be challenged by a number of good golfers from the region including Dubbo's own Jake O'Brien who is in good form. The championship will be contested in the three men's grades, as well as junior, senior and women's divisions in both scratch and nett events.

The championship kicks off with the first group teeing off on Thursday at 8am, the formal dinner is on at the club on Thursday evening in the function room and the final round on Friday.

There are currently limited spots in the championship so if you have not already entered please contact the club ASAP on 6882 1255 to register.
