PORT FAIRY Golf Club manager Stephen Demartin expects another bumper field for this weekend's Shipwreck Coast Classic.
The two-day amateur tournament, which tees off at Port Fairy on Saturday before concluding the following day at Warrnambool, has attracted nearly 200 players.
"It's a really good field this year again, which is fantastic," Demartin said.
"The tournament is shared between us and Warrnambool and we work really well together. There is 80 (players) in the morning and about 120-odd in the afternoon field.
"It has been running for some years and is a fantastic tournament over the two courses and it's just getting more and more popular.
"It's not so much about the opportunity to play two good courses within close proximity to each other and the facilities both clubs have are second to none so they really enjoy playing their golf at both."
There will be one grade of men's 18-hole stroke and three 18-hole stableford grades while two women's 18-hole stableford classes will be on show.
