Pink Lady Day

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Or­gan­is­ers of a Pink Lady Day at Hor­sham Golf Club hope to raise more than $2000 for breast can­cer sup­port on March 20.

Mon­day golf co-or­di­na­tor Julie Obst said the event, now in its sev­enth year, had sig­nif­i­cance for many of the re­gion’s golfers.

“We started this event in hon­our of a special lady who was part of our Mon­day com­pe­ti­tion but is no longer with us due to breast can­cer,” she said.

“Breast can­cer touches a lot of peo­ple in our re­gion and we are grate­ful to the peo­ple who sup­port our an­nual Pink Lady Day. We had 114 com­pete last year and we hope for a sim­i­lar num­ber this year.”

The nine-hole event is open to all fe­male golfers, with no hand­i­cap or mem­ber­ship re­quired.

Teams will be drawn for a four-per­son am­brose, with golfers to as­sem­ble at 8am for an 8.30am shot­gun start.

The day’s ma­jor prize is a ladies Swarovski watch, val­ued at $600, spon­sored by Mackay’s Lead­ing Edge Jewellers.

There will be near­est the pins and straight­est drive cat­e­gories in two di­vi­sions. En­try is $15 and play­ers are en­cour­aged to wear some­thing pink. Peo­ple can sub­mit en­tries at Hor­sham Golf Club’s pro shop or call Julie on 0447 689 713 for more in­for­ma­tion.
