Take a stroke for stroke
GOlFERS of all ages and abilities will be able to take their best shot at a million dollar hole-in-one at an Australia-wide amateur charity golf competition to be held this month.
Take a Stroke for Stroke is the brainchild of Gary Begg, a professional golfer who says the event combines his passion for golf with his drive to raise money for charity.
“This event is all about getting people to get out and have a go on the golf course and importantly raise awareness about strokes and what they can do,” Begg says.
“This is the first event of its kind in Australia, offering participants the opportunity to take a shot at a million dollar hole in one at the National Final on the NSW Central Coast.
“Golfers all around the country can enter the first-stage of the competition via a gold coin donation at their local participating golf club or driving range.
The first stage will be held at participating golf clubs around the country starting on June 1st. The National Final will be staged at Mercure Kooindah Waters, where participants will have the chance to shoot for a million dollar hole-in-one in December.
As an inclusion to the million dollar holein-one, entrants will be in the running to take home $1.5 million in prizes including one of 150 sets of premium Wilson clubs just for a NTP.
A portion of the proceeds raised from the first stage of the competition will be donated to the National Stroke Foundation.
