Former US Open champion golfer Geoff Ogilvy will visit Horsham for a whirlwind tour.
Ogilvy is in Horsham to play a nine-hole exhibition match on May 6 before the Geoff Ogilvy Foundation's Gen Z event the next day.
Horsham Golf Club spokesman Cullen Williams said the club was thrilled to have a golfer of Ogilvy's calibre visit.
"It's very, very exciting. There's a bit of a buzz around about it," Williams said.
"It's a big deal, it's not very often you're able to get the US open champion to come to the Horsham Golf Club," he said.
"It's a great opportunity to watch a world class golfer. It should be a good few days."
The exhibition match will be followed by a three-course dinner and Q&A on the evening of May 6.
Williams said the club was expecting "a hundred-odd" people to attend the dinner at the clubhouse.
Among those joining Ogilvy on the course for the exhibition match will be Horsham's own Jenny McRae, a golfer with a long list of accolades of her own.
"We thought it'd be a great idea to get a local legend to play," Williams said.
"It'd be good to watch them both."
It's probably as much between the ears as it is about technique.Jenny McRae
McRae won her first women's championship at Horsham golf club in 1997, before going back-to-back in 1999 and 2000.
Since 2002 she has won 20 consecutive titles, but that doesn't stop the nerves of lining up against the 2006 US Open winner.
"I'm just hitting a lot of golf balls and trying not to panic!" McRae laughed.
McRae said she's "absolutely excited but very nervous", noting Geoff was one of the players whose career she's followed over the years.
"I know how good a golfer he is, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how he plays our golf course," she said.
McRae has played the Horsham golf course itself for thirty four years.
"I actually took up golf quite late, after I ended up with really bad knees so I couldn't play tennis or basketball anymore. I'd had the odd hit of golf and I just decided maybe this is the next thing for me to have a go at," McRae said.
"I'd played top level tennis and someone said to me that tennis players convert to golf quite quickly.
"I think it's because we're strong in the wrist."
Despite her success, McRae said she was always trying to improve her game.
"It's probably one of the toughest sports I've ever committed to. So much can easily go wrong by being a little bit out with timing, a little bit out with ball position, stance - all the basic stuff that pros talk about," she said.
"It's probably as much between the ears as it is about technique."
Tickets for the event are available on the Horsham Golf Club website.
