As the weather heats up so does the golf action in the Wimmera.
On Sunday the Wimmera District Golf Association will be holding its Men's and Ladies' Championships at the Horsham Golf Club after the 2020 edition was held in Stawell.
The Junior Championships will also be contested on Sunday.
WDGA vice president and head of men's match committee Shane Grover said he couldn't wait to see players out on the course, which he said from all reports was in great condition.
"With COVID and what's going on it's been a long time coming," Grover said.
"Numbers aren't too bad, we're hoping a few more will enter, we've still got a few days obviously.
"We're really looking forward to getting back to Horsham, we don't get to play it a lot in the district."
Both reigning champions from last year's men's and women's events will be back to defend their crown in this year's tournament.
"The reigning men's champion is Jeremy Schmidt. He's backing up from last year's win. He's from Horsham," Grover said.
"And he won it last year from Tim Coffey from Stawell who'd won it the six years previous.
"He's coming again, he means business I think."
In 2020 Horsham's Sue Walter won the women's championship after shooting 84 and 85 off the stick.
"The women's should be a good one I reckon," Grover said.
"You've got defending champion Sue Walter, Jenny McRae from Horsham, she's a longtime champion there and Libby Lacey from Nhill, who's a 24-time champion at Nhill.
"That'll be a real good contest I'd reckon."
In the juniors, Nhill's Heath Braybrook is the defending champion and Grover thinks he'll be "very hard to beat".
