2016-07-21 06:00

THE highly-anticipated Selborne Classic will again be attracting a host of experienced players to the greens from 5 to 7 August with renowned golfer, Michael Scholz, coming on as emcee for the event.

This entertaining speaker has years of experience in the golfing arena having competed on professional circuits around the world since 1992.

All competitions played during the three-day Selborne Classic will be in teams of four with Friday and Saturday following a betterball format and Sunday a fourball alliance.

On arrival at Selborne, players must register individually after which a ‘goodie’ bag can be collected. The three days of golf, as well as all halfway house meals, dinners and entertainment for the three nights, are included in the entrance fee.

On Friday, 5 August each team of four will be divided into two teams and assigned another team to compete against. First, second and third prizes will be awarded for the day, relative to the betterball pairings.

On Saturday, 6 August the betterball competition will follow Friday’s format although golfers must change partners within each two ball.

The partner change is in keeping with the spirit of the tournament which encourages camaraderie while introducing golfers to different players. Once again, first, second and third prizes will be awarded.

On Sunday, 7 August each team will play a fourball alliance, two scores to count, format and the top five alliance prizes will be awarded on the day.

This will be followed by the Selborne Classic overall prizegiving which will see the top 10 teams awarded some fantastic prizes.

There will also be raffles held throughout the tournament, nearest-to-pins on all four shorts, mystery prizes daily as well as fun activities on each tee provided by sponsors.
