Entry list now open for inaugural City of Inverness 54-hole Open

Now that 2010 has dawned, the final preparations have been put in place for the three golf courses in Inverness to host the inaugural and unique event, the City of Inverness 54-hole Open for male amateurs.
Inverness, Torvean and Loch Ness, the three courses within the environs of the City of Inverness, are pooling their resources to work together and jointly promote the 54 Hole Open.
Conceived in 2009 it hasn’t taken the organising committee long to put the plans in place, book tee times at the three courses and add the final touches to an event that promises to attract some of the Highland’s, and hopefully Scotland’s, best golfers to Inverness at the end of May.
Competitors will play a round of golf over Inverness GC on Friday 28th May, followed by a round on Loch Ness Golf Course on Saturday 29th May with Torvean hosting the final round and prize giving on Sunday 30th May.
With a top prize of a £500 voucher for the best aggregate scratch score, a £400 voucher for the best aggregate handicap score in each of the two handicap sections, along with individual prize vouchers for the best scores at each course along with many other aggregate and individual prizes all competitors are in with a great chance of walking away with a something from the weekend.
The committee have made entry to the event very attractive by pegging the entry for the event at just £60, just £20 per course per day, which is a big reduction on the standard green fee you would have to pay if you wanted to play these courses as a visitor.
Hamish Spence, President of Torvean Golf Club said:
“The boys on the organising committee have put in a lot of work to bring this all together. Working with fixture lists and course bookings at three different courses could have proved a big headache in finding suitable dates but all three clubs have been very enthusiastic which has made the process so much easier.
"I am very hopeful that this inaugural competition will grab the imagination of golfers in the Highlands and we will see the event growing in the coming years and attracting players from all over Scotland and even beyond.
"On a personal note I am also delighted that there will be lots of prizes for handicap golfers as well as the top players as we want to make sure that this event is for everyone and not just the elite players. That way I might have a chance!!”
