Golf club raises funds, awareness for prostate cancer

Brendan Garrett follows through with his swing at the golf day charity event.

A great time was held by all as a capacity field battled it out at Innes Park Country Golf Club’s Blue Balls Day, promoting Prostrate Cancer Awareness and raising $2,225 for the cause in perfect conditions.

The Registration Fee of $35 per player included a blue golf ball, and participants got into the spirit in the 3-Person Ambrose event, with blue the predominant theme of those who dressed in colourful outfits.

Bundaberg Regional Council's Vince Habermann officially started the event with a shotgun start.

There were many great prizes on offer, provided by generous sponsors, including a $10,000 prize up for grabs for a Hole in One, but no-one was able to achieve the feat.

Innes Park Club owners Louise Cole and Gary Peat were delighted with the success of the day and the amount raised for the cause.

“Also, great work by all the committee for their important and hard work – everyone showed their great community spirit once again with also Door Prizes and Huge Raffle Prizes – we also did a fundraiser at Innes Park Golf Club last year for Breast Cancer Trails,” Louise said.

“Cancer has touched all of us in some way, we know someone, have lost someone or have battled its grip ourselves.

“This fundraiser helped save lives. Our aim was to bring a fun day, and remind everyone that it’s ok to enjoy life, remember those who have been lost and embrace those who are with us by giving them courage, laughter and support.”

Innes Park Country Golf Club welcomes social players and they also have competitions every Saturday.

The club also features also a day and night driving range available from 4pm to 6pm daily and monthly golf lessons with Mick Murnane, a PGA Coach at Bundaberg Golf Club.
