In her 60th year of playing golf, Griffith's own Liz Graham will be heading over to America in February to partake in the TaylorMade Order of Merit Final in Las Vegas.
Graham won the right to head over to America to take part in the competition after taking out 2019 Taylormade Order of Merit Final Qualifiers in the A grade division.
The 45-time Griffith Golf Club champions competed against 265 players from 65 different clubs who handed over more than 14,000 golf cards throughout the 12-month period the competition was contested over.
Graham said it came as a surprise when she received the email admitting she had forgotten she had signed up.
"When I got the phone call, it was very hard to believe that is what it was," she said.
"I questioned them, and they asked if I was Elizabeth Graham from Griffith and you play a lot of golf and said that's you.
"What a big surprise and a very good surprise as well."
Golf has been a great way to travel for Graham, who has travelled to places such as Hawaii while playing the sport she loves.
"I have played heaps of golf around everywhere, and it is just a wonderful game," she said.
"It has been so great to be able to travel and meet new people and tell them about Griffith. It is promoting Griffith as well, I think."
It will be a week-long golfing event for Graham starting on Monday, February 24, with the TaylorMade Order of Merit final at the Rio Secco Golf Course.
From there Graham will play a round at the TPC Las Vegas course before combining with other Australian golfers who will be taking on America in a two-day tournament Reflection Bay and Cascata Golf Courses.
"It will be a wonderful opportunity to play in Vegas," she said.
"We're extending our trip as we haven't been there before."
