A KIND of nice day for golfing
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.
