Border golf is turning pink.

PRETTY IN PINK: Golfers will dig out their pink clothing later this month for a major women's tournament. The event will raise funds for the Albury-Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre.

The three venues will stage the inaugural Pink on the Green Border Women’s Golf Classic later this month.

“Wodonga has previously raised funds for the McGrath Foundation,” Wodonga Golf Club’s Jenny Garner said.

“But we wanted to keep the money totally local, so we are raising funds for the Albury-Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund.

“And we have been delighted with the response from our sponsors.”

Wodonga has a $20,000 car for a hole-in-one, Commercial Golf Resort Albury a $10,000 golf cart for an ace, while the Thurgoona Country Club Resort is offering $10,000 in furniture for the perfect shot.

There is also $6500 in prizes for the 54-hole event, which starts on October 25.

“We have more than 90 entries at the moment and are looking to cap the field at 108,” Garner said.

A Pink on the Green Shield will be awarded to the leading club, and all players are being encouraged to wear pink, particularly the final day in Wodonga.
