Coral Cove Golf Club was a sea of colour and excitement as over $3000 was raised to help in the fight against Breast Cancer at their annual Pink Day on Sunday, one of the feature events on their calendar.
A total of 93 players participated, many really getting into the spirit and dressing in pink, including tutus and wigs, with Peter “Pedro” and Jane Folwell taking out the award for the Best Dressed Team.
Ladies Club Captain Tracey Prewett and Vice-Captain Margherita O’Ryan, and Men’s Captain Greg Kruger and his deputy Peter Sim, did a wonderful job in organising the event, with many great sponsored competitions and raffle prizes.
Peter was also among the awards, winning the Chip/Putting Comp.
One of the event sponsors, David Hillier of Bundaberg Toyota and his brother Chris won the day with 58 Nett, from local school teachers Simon Gills and Noel Stitt (58.75), David’s son Callum and another sponsor Richard Sears, of Coral Coast Ford, (60.75), Craig Goulding and David Cook (61), and Max Baxter and Mick Percy (61.5).
The Bradman's Winners were local Primary School Principal Chris Munro and his teenage son Jack, with Paul Maloney and Adam Denney the Bradman's Runners-up.
Greg Kruger also shared in the spoils, picking up two Pin Shots awards, on the Numbers 2 and 16 Men’s with 2.79m and 1.25m, respectively.
The other Pin Shots winners were Sue Waddell (No 2 Ladies, 3.26m), Margherita O'Ryan (No 8 Ladies, 6.28m), Jeroen Rodenberg (No 8 Men’s, 0.81m), Jill Serra (No 10 Ladies, 6.60m), Tracey Prewett’s husband Ian (No 10 Men’s, 2.3m), Di Heather (No 16 Ladies, 4.15m), and David Cook (No 14 Open, 3.3m).
