Coraki woos the ladies
CORAKI Golf Club has again secured the rights to run a $15,000 Ladies Pro-Am event on Sunday, February 6.
The Australian Ladies Professional Golf-sanctioned Order of Merit event will be the second presented by the club after its highly successful tournament this year, won by Mullumbimby product Nicole James.
"More than 40 lady professionals competed in the inaugural pro-am this year and indications are that as many, if not more, will come again," Coraki Golf Club president Neil Clark said.
"We've received many letters of appreciation from lady professionals who competed this year, saying they really enjoyed the day and will return if possible.
"Again we've been able to obtain sponsorship from Optus World and Sony Erikson, Carlton United, Mid-Richmond Plumbers, Strammit, Eagle Plumbing, Budget Eyewear, The Northern Star, 88.9FM and NBN Television.
"We are confident that, with such great support, this tournament will be even better than this year."
Six of the 2004 field went on to qualify for the US Open; six also qualified for the British Open; one, Lorraine Lambert, won in Europe.
Kylie Pratt won the Palm Meadows Pro-Am on the Gold Coast the week after the Coraki event and Ann-Maree Knight finished third in the Australian Open.
Activities planned will include a pre-tournament dinner on the Saturday.
