I'm a freelance writer who lives on the Bellarine Peninsula. I enjoy finding new things to see and do in the beautiful area that I live in.
Event:
For some people golf is the ultimate sport, combining skill and precision to try and achieve that most elusive of goals - the hole in one. For others, it is merely a good walk ruined (as was famously quoted by writer Mark Twain). If you enjoy spending time on the green, there are plenty of golf courses on the Bellarine Peninsula and around Geelong and the Surf Coast to keep you entertained. But if you're a bit more serious about your golfing plays, then you should probably consider entering one of the competitions that are happening around the region.

Clifton Springs Golf Club Celebrity Pro-Am 2014

On Sunday 12 January, Clifton Springs Golf Club will be holding their annual Celebrity Pro-Am where golfers are invited to play for the chance to win from a prize pool of $10 000. If you play at an amateur level and hold a current Australian handicap of 36 maximum (for men) and 45 maximum (for women), you are eligible to compete. There will be two tee-offs on the day - the first is at 7.30am and costs $50 (this includes a clubhouse meal), with the second at 12.30pm (it will cost $70 to enter this round). As far as celebrity players are concerned, don't expect to see anybody too famous. Rather, expect to see a fine representation from AFL's Geelong Football Club, including Harry Taylor, Mathew Stokes, Mitch Duncan, Taylor Hunt and Jackson Thurlow. The Assistant Coach for the team, Blake Caracella, and former Geelong captain and NFL punter Ben Graham, will also be taking part in the event.

This is a great opportunity to show off your putting and long drive skills, with the incentive of winning some cash along the way.

People who also compete in Curlewis Golf Club's Pro-Am the following day will have an extra chance to win, with a further $3000 on offer for the professional with the best combined score over the two days ($2000 for first and $1000 for second).

So get on your golfing pants, book in your caddy, and travel on down to Clifton Springs Golf Club for a competitive and fun Sunday session on the green.
