Cobram Barooga golfers will be heading out onto the greens tomorrow for the first Murray Monster Challenge for the year.
The event will be held at Cobram Barooga Golf Club on Golf Course Rd in Barooga.
Event organiser Justin Speirani said the competition was sure to be an interesting one.
‘‘It’s a back tee challenge, so we’ve set the course up really hard,’’ Mr Speriani said.
‘‘There are prizes for those people who beat their handicap at a net score.
‘‘It will be played off the back tees and with really tight pin spots.’’
Mr Speriani said the winner would be awarded a $150 voucher to the Cobram Barooga Golf Club pro shop.
He said grade winners would win a $100 voucher, and there would be $40 vouchers for players breaking handicaps.
More than 100 players were expected to compete, including some notable local identities, he said.
‘‘Gary Hunt is the man to watch,’’ Mr Speriani said.
‘‘The abnormally-swinging Gary Hunt whose punting score is excellent at the moment, rumour has it.
‘‘And sleepers like Karle Bishop are always there-abouts.’’
Entry to the competition is $12.
