John Eliott, the Waihi Golf Club Organising Committee Chairman for the Pro Am 36 Hole Tournament coming up on February 15 and 16 joined Brian Gentil in the Gold FM studio to give us some background about how this top class competition came about.

John gave a summary of what a Pro Am tournament is, and talked about some of the professionals that will be playing alongside the amateurs.

The Waihi Golf Club has also managed a bit of a coup in getting Brendan Telfer along to interview ex All Black Grant Fox, golfer Ryan Fox’s father, at the dinner happening on Saturday the 15th.

There are two days of golf and Brian asked if the public would be able to go along and walk the course to watch.

Brian and John touched on start times, the amazing views from parts of the course and also mentioned the importance of sponsors.John stressed that the event was about having fun, and that they had some fantastic prizes which aren’t necessarily for those at the top of the leaderboard.
