Get ready to tee off at a Pro-Am at Woodville and Rosnay golf courses next month.
The two-day free event is thanks to generous sponsors and aims to showcase Cumberland City Council’s outstanding golf courses.
Mayor Steve Christou said it was an opportunity for amateur adult players and juniors to play alongside professionals.
“We’re excited to host and look forward to welcoming golfers of all ages and highlight the incredible improvements and upgrades to Council’s golf courses," Christou said.
“Council has obtained more than $50,000 in sponsorship for this event, which means we’re outlaying very little resources.
“We’re really glad to be able to host this for the community and have some of the best golfers in Australia play at our very own Woodville and Rosnay golf courses."

A $950,000 irrigation system was installed at Woodville Golf Course last year, which now waters the entire golf course from tee to green, keeping it in tip top condition.
We’ve also laid over 10,000 m2 of new turf and significant path works at Woodville for a grand experience.
The tournament is for both amateur and junior golfers and includes lunch and drink service, prize money, gifts and more.
Former professional Alex Edge, now a reinstated amateur, started off playing golf as a junior in a similar tournament.
“As a young kid, the tournament is a good introduction to see what real golf was all about. As a golf pro, it’s fun to play with the kids ... you can give a little tip and it goes a long way,” he said.
