Championships at Cambridge Golf Club

Golfers young and old will head to Cambridge this weekend for two of the major golfing events of the calendar year.

This Saturday and Sunday, Classic Builders Cambridge Golf Club plays host to the 20th renewal of the Forsyth Barr-sponsored Cambridge Masters’ and following that, on Monday/Tuesday, will host the Waikato Age Group Championships.

A field of 92+ men and women have entered for this year’s Masters’ to be played over 36 holes on a superbly presented Cambridge course. With winter conditions prevailing a winning score of close to par figures is expected to come out on top of this year’s competition.

A similar sized field of 100 juniors, aged from 8 to 19 years, including boys and girls, will then tee up from 8.15am on Monday to play their 36 holes to decide the 2018 Waikato Age Group Champions in six divisions.

Players from all over the North Island are expected in Cambridge to compete in this year’s events, with most of the younger players supported by families coming to Cambridge for the first time.
