A KIND of nice day for golf­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

SOME say that play­ing golf is the best way to spoil a per­fectly good walk, but it is also the per­fect way to help a bunch of kids this week­end at the Moss­man Golf Club.

The Kids In Need of Do­na­tions an­nual char­ity golf day tees of at 9am on Sun­day and there are still spots avail­able to have a swing for a good cause.

And you don’t need to be Tiger Woods to win one of the great prizes on of­fer.

The four-ball, best ball am­brose gives ev­ery player a chance to aban­don any poor shots and hope a team­mate can play a bet­ter one.

There will also be a chip­ping com­pe­ti­tion for those with a sharp short game.

Or­gan­iser Jenny White said it was a very so­cial and fun day.

“It’s par­tic­u­larly good for those who don’t play golf too of­ten - although it helps if you do have one good player on your team,” she said.

“There will be var­i­ous prizes for near­est-the-pin and for the long­est and straight­est drives.

“We have 10 teams booked so far and are hop­ing to have 18 to fill up the course.

“We are as­sist­ing a num­ber of chil­dren in the re­gion so our fund-rais­ing ef­forts will help a num­ber of fam­i­lies in trav­el­ling away for treat­ment and with day-to-day ex­penses cre­ated by the chal­lenges when a child is un­well.”

Book­ings need to be made di­rectly with the golf course on 4098 1570 - get in quick other­wise they will run out of carts and you will have to walk.

The cost is $35 per per­son or $140 for a team of four and in­cludes a sausage siz­zle at the end of play.
