Rosebud hosts blind golf titles for 30th year
Rosebud Country Club will celebrate 30 consecutive years of hosting the Victorian Blind Golf Open next Monday and Tuesday.
Australia’s top blind golfers and their caddies will compete in the 36-hole stableford event, followed by the ISPS Handa Australian Blind Golf 36-hole stroke tournament on Thursday 29 and Friday 20 March 2020.
These include Mark Eschbank, winner of the 2019 ISPS Hand Japan Blind Golf Open and Michele Watts, current world champion.
Former Victorian Blind Golf president, David Blyth, will play in the tournament that he established 30 years ago. David said: “I am proud to be playing in what I believe to be the longest running sporting event held in the same location in Australia.”
Rosebud Country Club members have supported the event each year by volunteering as caddies, spotters and referees. Arthur Scott, RCC member, has been tournament referee for 30 years and will step up again this year.
Scott led a volunteer team of over 300 in 2014 when Rosebud hosted the World Blind Golf Championships.
