Time to still enter the Asia-Pac Senior Am

There is still time to enter the 2017 Asia-Pacific Senior Amateur Championship to be played at Royal Adelaide Golf Club from 18-20 October.

The event is played over 54-holes stroke play, and is open to male golfers worldwide, aged 55 years and over. The handicap limit varies depending on age, with the limit for players aged 55-59 years 14.4, whilst there is no limit for players aged 70 years and over.

The championship commences with a practice round and Opening Ceremony on Tuesday 17 October, followed by three rounds of stroke play competition, concluding with the Presentation Dinner on Friday evening. This is included in the entry fee, as well as complimentary transport from the airport and the official hotel to the course.

The championship rotates around the countries of the Asia-Pacific, with Australia last hosting the event in 2011. It traditionally attracts the best senior golfers from the region, and is a great opportunity for players to renew friendships and enjoy the camaraderie.

The Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation is proud to have Royal Adelaide Golf Club host the event for the first time, and competitors will essentially play the same course as the players in February at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open. The event is also delighted to have the CEO of The R&A compete.

Entries close on Monday 4 September. For further information and to enter the event, visit:
