Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - SPORT -

TO BE sure, to be sure. When you’re on a good thing, stick to it.

For the third year run­ning, Caloun­dra Ro­tary Club will host its ever-pop­u­lar St Pa­trick’s Day Char­ity Golf Day on Fri­day, March 16 at Pel­i­can Wa­ters Golf Course.

This is a com­mu­nity day where golfers are wel­come to dress up in Irish/green/ lep­rechaun at­tire for a chance to win the prize for best-dressed team.

Ro­tary club golf com­mit­tee chair­man Gor­don Hamil­ton said last year’s event had at­tracted more than 150 play­ers and raised $16,000 for Ro­tary to con­tinue its good work.

“We pre­sented Sun­nyKids with a cheque for $10,000 that night,” Mr Hamil­ton said.

“They will be the re­cip­i­ents again this year. We have sold 12 holes (in spon­sor­ships) so far this year and hope to in­crease that.

“We are hope­ful of get­ting at least an­other 100 play­ers in teams of four.”

Regis­tra­tion costs $340 per team, $85 per per­son for vis­i­tors and $40 per per­son for mem­bers. The price in­cludes: green fees and two golf carts per team, on-course com­pe­ti­tion prizes, the pre­sen­ta­tion, pre-golf burger bar and post-golf light fin­ger food.

Play­ers can reg­is­ter from 10am, be­fore at­tend­ing the 11.45am brief­ing for the noon shot­gun start. Pre­sen­ta­tions will fol­low at 5pm. reg­is­ter via email re­cep­[email protected] pel­i­can­golf.com.au or phone 5437 5000.
