Golf pays off for girls

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

GOLF: The Mun­dub­bera State School girls vol­ley­ball team hosted a three-ball am­brose event at the week­end with Skye Ward, Eve­lyn Kim­ber and Re­becca Kim­ber com­bin­ing to claim vic­tory with 35 points.

The com­pe­ti­tion raised money for the vol­ley­ball team which will head to Mel­bourne later this year to com­pete.

Mun­dub­bera Golf Club pres­i­dent Gra­ham Car­lyon said the am­brose had been well re­ceived.

“The par­tic­i­pa­tion and

sup­port is just a sign of how we sup­port the kids at school,” he said.

The am­brose is the sec­ond fundrais­ing event staged at the club after the Im­pe­rial Chal­lenge was played ear­lier this month.

“It was a great ef­fort from ev­ery­one and we’ve raised about a $1000 for the girls vol­ley­ball team,” Car­lyon said.

Car­lyon said the course was in great con­di­tion fol­low­ing re­cent rain.

“The course went from dead to green in a week,” he said.

“It’s a lot eas­ier to play and the green makes peo­ple feel bet­ter. It may sound silly but it’s a fact.”

Vol­ley­ball coach Adrian Brady said it the event had been a suc­cess and it had been great to see the two or­gan­i­sa­tions work­ing to­gether.

“The golf club did a great job run­ning the day,” Brady said. “On be­half of the vol­ley­ball team, I would like to thank all of our gen­er­ous spon­sors, the par­ents that have gone above and be­yond with the or­gan­i­sa­tion of the event and the golf club who did an amaz­ing job.”

The team’s fi­nal fundraiser will be held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 4.
