The 2014/15 Golf Link Race To Bonville gets underway again this month.
We’ve lauded Golf Link’s “Race to Series” here before and we wanted to let you know that the 2014/15 series gets underway this month.
The series features 35 events staged across the nation and includes courses such as Metropolitan Golf Club in Victoria, Pacific Harbour Golf & Country Club in Queensland and The Cut in WA.
The series is a great way to test your game and is as close to a national tour as many of us will ever get close to.
It works like this:
Golfers with a GA handicap can head to the Golf Link site and sign up to play in an event. By playing in the event, you can accumulate points (depending on where you finish) and vie for position on your state’s order of merit.
The top 40 golfers (plus ties, noted place getters based on grade, regional event winners) will play off in a state final. The winners across all grades and best-placed female will represent their state at the national final at Bonville Golf Club.
Can non-handicapped social golfers play?
There’s also some added interest this year, with the Race Series being opened to non-handicapped social golfers, who will play a separate competition for their own prizes at each event.
“Not everybody who plays and loves the game has an official handicap and we want the Race Series to be as inclusive as possible,” says iseekgolf General Manager and Race Series Tournament Director, Jon Perkins.
“There will be a separate competition for those people at each of the Race Series days and we believe it will be quite a popular part of the event.
More than 4,000 rounds of golf will be played in this year’s Series, with the first event to tee off at Victoria’s prestigious Metropolitan Golf Club on October 20.
