Hamilton and Warrnambool one will be without gun players when they meet in the Western District Golf Association men's division one pennant grand final.
Warrnambool one captain Blair Prescott said his side would be missing current Warrnambool club champion Sam Astbury who will instead compete in a half-marathon.
Hamilton captain Malcolm Groves said top-three player Graham Rentsch would be unavailable due to family commitments.
But that won't stop Hamilton from trying to take down the pennant's reigning premier at Port Fairy Golf Club on Sunday.
"A team victory would be nice," Groves said.
"You get to share it with your mates."
Groves said pennant was unique because golfers didn't often get to play in a team.
Liam Powell, who has played three matches with the division one side this season, will replace Rentsch in Hamilton's team.
Warrnambool one brings in Chris White who has captained the division one side before and has won a pennant grand final.
"We've still got a very strong team," Prescott said.
Hamilton will be chasing its first men's division one pennant success since joining the WDGA.
Groves said his side had twice placed third in previous seasons.
Hamilton previously played in South Western District Golf Association against clubs such as Portland and Heywood.
Groves said Hamilton won "a few flags" in the SWDGA with its most recent division one triumph in 2014.
The Hamilton captain said he had a few strategies for the Port Fairy course.
"Stay out of the marram grass," he said.
"And it's usually a little windier down there so you've got to keep your ball flight down."
