Entries have opened for the 2017 SITEWORKS LABOUR HIRE - Goldfields Junior Desert Open

Juniors in WA will strike gold again this year at the 2017 SITEWORKS LABOUR HIRE - Goldfields Junior Desert Open. The Goldfields Golf Club of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will be staging the event for the sixth time on the 26th & 27th of September. The SITEWORKS LABOUR HIRE -GJDO is a WA state junior ranking event over 36 holes of stroke. The club continues to receive great support from GolfWA, whom have confirmed the attendance of the State Development Squad players, to ensure a high-quality field for what is continuing to be one of WA’s largest junior golf tournaments.

New in 2017 is the Sundowner BBQ for all players and parents after round one. This will be a relaxing time to enjoy the evening, meet new people and create lasting friendship. We hope to have a large crowd and meals can be paid for at the bar during the day at a cost of $20.00 pp. The evening will kick off at 5pm.

On Monday the 25th, participants can play a practice round for $25.00, please call the Proshop to make a booking, on 90262601.

The new course superintendent has the Kalgoorlie Golf Course in great shape and as the warmer weather hits, the course will continue to improve. The event has exclusive access to the course for the 2 days allowing junior golfers an opportunity to play on the Graham Marsh designed Kalgoorlie Golf Course, which offers a high standard of playing surface, set in the unique setting of natural bush land and rich red desert sands.

With sponsorship at capacity, the tournament continues to enjoy great support both locally and state-wide which enables a prize pool of six divisions with 24 prizes. The Gross Champion Girl and Boy will each receive a Kalgoorlie Gold Nugget. In addition, each divisional gross winner will also receive a smaller nugget.

The MyGolf section of the competition is again a 2016 MyGolf Tour event, with players awarded points to the season long order of merit. The MyGolf event will be run in conjunction with the SITEWORKS LABOUR HIRE -GJDO each day to allow younger players and siblings to participate. This event has a total of 18 prizes over the two days of competition and there is a division for all skill levels.

Each entrant will receive an event backpack containing a number of gifts. The club is intent on encouraging players to come and play with every participant taking something home. To complement the formal prizes, there will be 28 novelty prizes over the two days.

The Goldfields Golf Club is looking forward to a successful event again in 2017 and for years to come.
