UP AND ABOUT: Lucas Herbert's stellar Australian summer season will include the Christmas Challenge at the Bendigo Golf Club.

Professional golfers Lucas Herbert, Andrew Martin and Kris Mueck are set to play at the Bendigo Golf Club later this month.

The trio will join more than 200 golfers for the 15th annual Christmas Challenge on Saturday, December 23 at the Epsom course which has benefited enormously from the recent rains.

All three players have been travelling extensively on the professional circuit and have been regular attendees at the Christmas Challenge, which is the major fundraiser for the year for the Bendigo Golf Club.

Herbert is coming off three top-10 finishes in a row.

Also returning for the Christmas Challenge will be former Carlton stars Geoff Southby and Ken Sheldon and Federal Member for Murray Damian Drum.

Players wishing to compete in the Christmas Challenge are urged to contact the Bendigo Golf Club Pro Shop this week.
