MORE exciting action is on the agenda as preparations continue for a high-class Lismore golf competition.

 

Gun golfers from Sydney and Brisbane are expected to take part in the Lismore Workers Golf Club's Easter Tournament.

Several of the region's hopefuls are also likely to compete.

Club professional Peter Jaeger said he expected another highly exciting contest at the East Lismore club.

"It should be fantastic," she said.

"We always get guys who are plus or scratch markers. It will be great to see them here.

"The course should be in good condition as well.

"It should be a good event."

Scores of players will head to the tournament on March 29-30.

It will again be split into two days, with action on Good Friday and on Easter Saturday.

Male players are invited to the event and can play either or both the days.

The main feature is a 36-hole stroke competition, which is likely to attract several top-class amateurs.

Last year's winner Robert Carson took the title in an exciting fashion after a play-off with Lismore's Matt Buckley.

The Ballina player has confirmed he will be back to defend his title alongside Gold Coast player Mal Huth, who won in 2011.

About $4000 in prizes will be on offer in three graded sections.

Jaeger said newcomers were especially welcome to participate this year.

"This is one of the notable tournaments on the Northern Rivers circuit," he said.

"It is a chance for guys to play alongside really good golfers and put themselves up against guys of a similar handicap.

"It should be a good event and we can't wait to get started."

Nominations are being taken on a first come, first served basis.
