Take a stroke for stroke

Inside Golf - - News -

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.
