The Vintage is gearing up to host its second Great Events Golf Classic on May 12, combining a worthy cause with a day of golf on one of the region’s premier courses.

Michael Hagan, an ambassador for The Vintage and the Hunter Prostate Cancer Alliance, will be among the field along with fellow Knights legend Danny Buderus and Parramatta great Peter Sterling.

“Obviously it’s a great initiative: men’s health, prostate cancer directly, which has touched you somewhere along the line, even if it’s only a test,” Vintage director of golf Matt Farley said.

“It’s great to be a part of it as the host venue. It’s great to be able to support something Michael’s involved in.

“Men’s health runs second to women’s health with charities. It’s just the way it is. Hopefully this [event] can blossom.”

Farley said the event would showcase The Vintage’s new bunkers after a renovation program.

The cup is a four-person stableford with singles.

Entry is $150 or $600 for a team of four and includes a cart, on-course lunch and drinks.
