GOLFERS will be hoping the Fremantle Dockers perform under par this season with Fremantle Golf Course creating a special deal based on the team’s success, or lack thereof.

The golf course is extending their summer special for nine holes of golf for $10 on Monday and Tuesday until the Fremantle Dockers win their first AFL match.

Given the team lost their first 10 games in the 2016 season, the course will be hoping for a better outcome this year.

Evergreen Golf director Andrew Billingham said the special was a bit of fun.

“We were looking to extend the special but we didn’t know when too, so we came up with the idea to extend it until the Dockers won their first AFL match,” he said.

“Our golf head pro Clint Birkholz is a mad Dockers supporter.

“We have a running bet for who will be top and bottom, everyone is interested and we are surrounded by Dockers supporters.”

Mr Billingham said he thinks they will win their first round match against the Kangaroos on March 24.

“The Dockers are on the up this year,” he said.

“A lot of people have told me you’ll have to wait until the year after for them to win.

“It’s created a lot of banter and laughter and most people are looking forward to seeing how far it goes for.”
