Paws for some golf
CALLING all golf-hounds, pros and rank amateurs, the organisers of annual Charity Golf Day for Paws and Claws are howling for your support.
The Sea Temple Golf Club and Stanton Golf Management are hosting the Open Ambrose event with help from Pacific Toyota and Lexus of Cairns on July 15.
Paws and Claws treasurer Deborah Maguire said all proceeds will go towards building their new animal care centre in Craiglie, which Paws and Claws are hopeful will start to be built in the next few months.
“It’s the largest fundraiser for the year and supports the new animal care centre and last year it was very successful and everybody really enjoyed it and we’re hoping for a full house this year,” she said.
“The Port Douglas community is a very generous community - even though they’re struggling themselves we get a lot of support for the animal refuge.
“We’re looking for teams of four and you can come on your own and we’ll put you in teams, we’re looking for people to come and enjoy the day and support a good cause.”
Entry fee for the day is $125 per person and includes 18 holes, shared electric cart, a bacon and egg muffin at registration and beer, wine and soft drink on the course with lunch.

The not-for-profit organisation would appreciate any gifts and donations to go towards a raffle basket, which will be held on the day.
