The beautiful Magenta Shores organizes the mid-amateurs.
About 100 of Australia's best amateurs start it tomorrow in the national mid-amateur championship at Magenta Shores on the central coast of New South Wales.
Dale Clarke of New Zealand, last year's defending champion in the Barossa Valley, is back in the field and is likely to be the men's favorite.
Clarke is from Whangarei and plays from Sherwood Park Golf Club on the northern island. The father of a baby twin, he was the only Kiwi in the field last year. He plays a handicap with plus three, the lowest in the field this week
Mark Boulton, the champion of 2017, is also in the field.
The side of the woman gets a new champion because the winner of the last two titles, Louise Mullard from New South Wales, has moved to the higher age group.
The mid-amateur championships are for players aged 30 to 54 with a handicap limit of 8.4 for men and 18 for women
The championships will be played over 54 holes starting tomorrow morning at Magenta Shores.
