Play golf for a pur­pose

The Cobram Courier - - SPORT -

Golfers are in­vited to en­ter the Legacy Golf Day in sup­port of a good cause this week­end.

The Co­bram Yar­ra­wonga Legacy Group will host its an­nual golf day on Sun­day, Septem­ber 10 at Co­bram Ba­rooga Golf Club to raise funds for on­go­ing sup­port of the won­der­ful work of Legacy.

Legacy mem­ber John An­der­son said last year the group’s golf day raised $4800 with the gen­er­ous sup­port of lo­cal busi­nesses and golfers.

‘‘It’s very im­por­tant for us to con­tinue the amaz­ing role of Legacy, which cares in a very prac­ti­cal way for the de­fence force fam­i­lies of veter­ans who have died or suf­fered an in­jury,’’ An­der­son said.

‘‘We can guar­an­tee golfers will be able to en­joy a ter­rific day on the course right here on the pic­turesque Mur­ray River.

‘‘And we en­cour­age ev­ery­one — re­gard­less of abil­ity — to come along and be part of this spe­cial day.

‘‘Let’s call it golf with a pur­pose — the great pur­pose and com­mit­ment of car­ing that is em­bod­ied by Legacy, which has been look­ing af­ter de­fence force fam­i­lies for many gen­er­a­tions.’’

Founded in 1923 by ex-ser­vice­men, Legacy cur­rently cares for about 65 000 wi­d­ows and 1800 chil­dren and dis­abled de­pen­dants through­out Aus­tralia.

On Sun­day, there will be a 10.30 am shot­gun start and a great day of golf and fundrais­ing is as­sured, along with ex­cel­lent tro­phies. The en­try fee is $25.
