More than 450 competitors, 150 volunteers and a canny bit of scheduling will next week play their part in pumping $1 million-plus into the Northern economy.
Launceston will host the Australian Veteran Golf Championship - an annual event played in each state on a rotational basis.
On Sunday (November 10) a registration day and mini-taste of the region at Country Club Tasmania will kick off a week that has been three years in the making.
Championship tournament director Phillip Atkins said this year's event presented an enormous logistical challenge for a volunteer group incorporating members from the North-West and Northern veteran golf groups.
"That stretch of water between us and Melbourne always makes it that bit harder,'' Mr Atkins said.
"We've still got a few i's to dot and t's to cross but we're getting there."
The championship will be jointly hosted by Riverside Golf Club, Launceston Golf Club and Country Club Tasmania.
Mr Atkins and organising committee member Sue Shea attended last year's event in Port Stephens in NSW on a fact-finding mission. They came back armed with more knowledge about the daunting task ahead.
Along the way, they've made some decisions that appear to be paying off, not the least in scheduling.
"We had a bit of flexibility in October-November as to when we held the event. We went for this particular week to try to fit in with interstate people who might be travelling to the Melbourne Cup,'' Mr Atkins said.
That appears to have worked, with entries capped around 450 and almost 90 per cent of competitors - and more than 100 non-playing partners - travelling from interstate.
"We've even got about 100 coming from Western Australia," he said.
Many of the visitors are taking the chance to see more of the state before and after the event and organisers are also going out of their way to give it a uniquely Tasmanian flavour.
Sunday's registration event will feature home-grown produce like wine, seafood, cheese and spirits.
The Launceston Visitor Information Centre will also be offering advice on regional attractions.
And the local flavour even extends to prizes, with the Kings Meadows Men's Shed making many of the trophies that will be presented at the end of the week.
Championship events start on Monday before the three rounds of the championship proper are played from Tuesday-Friday. A rest day is scheduled for next Wednesday.
A presentation dinner at the Tailrace Centre at Riverside wraps up the week on Friday, November 15.
