Entries to the 2017 Steelscene Peel Pro-Am are now open to the public, with some of the state’s finest professional and amatuer golfers set to grace the fairways at the Mandurah Country Club, Meadow Springs Golf Course and The Cut Golf Course.
Participants can choose to play any or all of the three days of the major PGA-sanctioned event in Mandurah.
With an over-subscription of professionals registering for the event each course has opened up extra places to accommodate 40 selected professionals from across Australia who will be competing for a total prize purse of $33,000.
Teenage golfer Kathryn Norris (16) has been invited to take part in the tournament.
She has received a personal invite from Gary James, owner of Steelscene Pty Ltd, who has been the main sponsor of Pro-Am for the last two years.
Norris, who has represented Australia three times, will compete as part of a four-person team comprising of three amateurs and a professional.
The young talent is looking forward to next week’s event.
“Gary has very generously invited me to play and I’m really excited to be teeing it up with some of the country’s best professionals,” she said.
“It’ll be a great experience and I’m going to be trying my best to put in a good performance.”
Norris is a junior member at both The Cut and Mandurah Country Club, and said she is fortunate to have the support of her bases.
“I’m very lucky to be a member of two clubs who allow me to take part in their competitions every week,” she said.
“I’m really looking forward to the last day at The Cut where I learned to play, it’ll be interesting if the wind blows.”
