Goddard who spoke about his passion for golf, says he is looking forward to the challenge of taking the course in a pro event.
"(It's) something that's new for myself, not playing in too many pro events of this caliber anyway, Tier 2 on the Australasian Tour" Goddard said.
"I've always been an avid golfer, golfing tragic my wife would say".
Growing up in Glengarry led Goddard to local courses from a young age, he credits the Toongabbie Golf Club as the place he learnt the love for the game
"Dad was the kind of self-proclaimed super intendant there, used to water greens and tees out of his old HQ Holden Ute, so I used to go down there with my brother at the time, and since I was knee high to a grass hopper and swing and hit golf balls around while dad was watering" Goddard said.
"Predominately played Toongabbie and a lot of courses around that area, Heyfield, Morwell and Traralgon in more recent years as I got older".
Ogilvy also had fond memories of playing in Gippsland through his junior days, and was looking forward to taking to country courses again after a layoff from the game.
"We used to play a great 72 hole in Yarram, I used to love Yarram the golf course, Traralgon we used to play a bit" Ogilvy said.
"Yeah we played quite a lot down here growing up, it was kind of a lot of the talent in my era came from around here, like down in Gippsland a lot of golfers came from down here, we played here a fair bit but it's been a long time like 20 years".
