GOLF: The island is set to welcome some of Australia's finest PGA legends, as the Ladbrokes PGA Legends Tour rolls in next month.

With 40 professionals in the field to accompany 80 amateurs in a shotgun start, the event will showcase Pacific Harbour's 6339m layout.

Director of golf operations Marcus Hartup said this would be the first time the event comes to the island and a fantastic opportunity for locals to meet some of the greats.

"Over the next two weeks they'll be touring in and around Brisbane,” Hartup said.

"It's the professional golfers over 50 - guys that have done really well back in the 80s and 90s like Rodger Davis, Ossie Moore, Anthony Painter and Tim Elliott.

"These guys are here to play because they enjoy playing golf and they enjoy mixing with people.”

Hartup said the professional field was finalised and amateur spots were filling fast.

"Even if people don't play, they're more than welcome to come along on the day,” he said.

"It'll be a great event for the demographic of the island and it's something we look to build on in years to come.”

General manager Will Keiler said they were pleased to team up with Mancorp Quality Homes as the major sponsor to bring the legends to the island.

"We already have a strong field of professional players who will compete for $11,000 in prizemoney,” he said.

There will be plenty of other prizes up for grabs including a Toro Personal Pace Self Propelled mower, four rounds of golf at RACV Royal Pines and a TaylorMade golf bag.

Mancorp Quality Homes Pacific Harbour Legends Pro Am will tee off on August 11 at the Pacific Harbour Golf and Country Club.
