Golfers chip in for hospi­tal wing

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

It seemed as though half of Mata­mata turned up at the golf club on Fri­day to chip in for Pohlen.

The an­nual TRAC Sports Bar Golf for Pohlen tour­na­ment drew a record num­ber of play­ers – even jockey Lance O’sul­li­van was on hand to man the bar­be­cue.

Ma­jor spon­sor Tony Bai­ley said the day was an out­stand­ing suc­cess with 27 teams on the green and a record amount of money raised. All pro­ceeds from the day will go to­wards the build­ing of the new wing at Pohlen Hospi­tal.

The New Zealand Com­mu­nity Trust also made a sig­nif­i­cant do­na­tion.

Ready to go: Maria Mcpike was keen to head out on to the green at the Golf for Pohlen tour­na­ment.
