Words by Nick Crockford

Bribie will be in the golfing spotlight for two days this week when the SParm PGA Legends Tour arrives on the island.

Sixty-five 65 PGA professionals will be taking part in back-to-back tournaments, along with more than 250 amateur players.

The Bribie Island Legends Pro-Am is being hosted by Bribie Island Golf Club on Friday (July 22) with an $11,000 prize fund.

Many of the players will then tee-up on Saturday (July 23) at the Pacific Harbour Legends Pro-Am, which also has $11,000 in prize money.

Title defence

Both tournaments will be over one round on the par 72 courses.

After a four-way tie for the Bribie Island Legends last year Andre Stolz and Nigel Lane will be trying to go repeat the feat, while 2021 Pacific Harbour PGA Legends Pro-Am winner Ben Jackson is returning to defend his title.

Current Order of Merit leader Stolz, main picture, who won at Yeppoon earlier this month, is looking to extend his margin on courses he loves playing.

Lane shared the spoils at the Victorian PGA Seniors Foursomes Championships in March.

“Bribie Island has two really unique golf courses and all of the PGA Professionals love visiting the region each year,” Stolz said.

'Wonderful'

“The sand-based Bribie Island Golf Club has some of the best surfaces we play all year and when combined with one of the more challenging layouts at Pacific Harbour, the two tournaments are a wonderful part of our schedule.”

Also included in the field are former US PGA Tour player Euan Walters, a winner at Mudgee in NSW this year, Queensland golfing icon Terry Price and the consistent Brad Burns.

Alongside them will be Richard Backwell, Tod Power and Murray Lott who won the South Australian PGS Seniors Championship in March, flying the flag for South-East Queensland.
