VETERANS' GOI.F TOURNEY O.C. , ROTORUA, this day. Despite the fact that'the entries have been restricted to 144, and that the age limit has been raised from 55 to 60 years, the New Zealand Veterans' golf tournament, conducted annually by the Rotorua Golf Club, has already drawn over 160 entries from all parts of the Dominion. The popularity of the tourney can be gauged from the fact that last year when no limit entry was stipulated over 160 players participated. As this was found to be more than the course could comfortably carry over a period of four days it was decided this year to raise the age limit. Despite this restriction, eight days after the first notices were issued by the club secretary, Mr. A. W. Clouston, the (iuota had been exceeded. Next year the Rotorua Golf Club also hopes to be able to resume its annual amateur Open tournament with the prospect of the course then being of championship standard (over 600 yards). Work is likely to be commenced In the near future on the task of merging the old Whakarewarewa Native School area into the Arikikapakapa course. This will have the effect of lengthening the course to an" extent of some 400 yards and will obviate, it is hoped, the congestion that now occurs at the second and third tees. The scratch score for the course will be increased to 71, instead of 69 as at present.
