The Windsor Auto Group Legends Pro-Am 2018 is set to take place on November 5 at Windsor Country Golf Club with a mixture of professional and amateur golfers playing for a prize of $11,000.

The event will see teams of four take on the 18-hole course. Each team will consist of one professional and three amateur golfers, all aged 50 and over.

In 2017, Pro-ams made their return to Windsor with the golf club hosting its first pro-am since 2007.

Pro Australian golfer Steve Conran (52), took out the top prize as he put up a very good score of 4 under par on a course with a stroke total of 67.

This year the Pro-am is expected to attract to the club over 56 professional golfers and competitors from across Australia and New Zealand, a larger group than the previous year.

They will be joined by numerous local and touring amateurs who have followed the 2018 Ladbrokes PGA Legends tour, of which the pro-am tournament is a part of.

The Legends Tour sees professional golfers aged 50 and over compete in approximately 70 tournaments throughout Australia and New Zealand.

There is over $1.5 million prize money up for grabs throughout the tour with hundreds of different golfers competing for a place in each event of the tour.

Windsor Pro-am takes place two days after the flagship tournament of the tour, the Australian PGA Seniors Championship which will take place at Richmond Golf Club from November 1-3.

It will see participants complete 54 holes across the 3 days.

The event is expected to attract over 100 professional golfers who will compete for the top prize of $80,000.
