Tee­ing off with Williams

Taupo Times - - HALLOWEEN - STEPH RANGI

Six Taupo¯ lads hit the golf course with Ali Williams on the week­end.

Ex All Black, Williams, played both Kin­loch Club and Wairakei Golf Cour­ses last week­end as a fundraiser for SPCA Taupo. The rounds were do­nated by each Golf Club.

Satur­day, he played the Kin­loch Golf Course with Danny Mills, James Mor­gan and Neil Hick­man, while on Sun­day he took on Bren­dan and Daniel We­ston and Rick Gal­braith at Wairakei Golf Course and Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary.

Williams, who has been play­ing rugby over­seas for the last four years, has fond child­hood mem­o­ries of hol­i­day­ing in Taupo¯ and said he was very happy to re­turn to the lake­side town and help such a ‘worth­while char­ity’.

The op­por­tu­nity to play a round with Williams was auc­tioned re­cently at the Har­courts Taupo¯ SPCA Char­ity Golf Tour­na­ment which ticked off its 19th year.

Har­courts Taupo¯ and the com­mu­nity have worked to­gether for the past 19 years to raise funds.

Both days went for $750 each for the team of three to play a round with Williams.

All pro­ceeds made from that day, in­clud­ing the two rounds of golf with Williams, went to Taupo¯ SPCA and will go to­wards help­ing lo­cal an­i­mals in need.
