Once again the Maleny Golf Club will host their Annual Charity Golf Day on May 19, for the benefit of the Maleny Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, through the work of Auxiliary members.
It will be an 18-hole 4 Ball Ambrose, with a Shotgun Start at 9am. All funds raised go to the Hospital Auxiliary, and last year, more than $12000 was raised.
For those wondering what an ‘Ambrose’ is, it is a system named by the secretary-manager of the Victor Harbour Golf Club, South Australia, in honor of Richard and Mary Ambrose who brought their version of the game from Michigan, USA, when they moved to Australia.
The Golf Day enjoys great support from local businesses and players, who come from all over SE Queensland to play on this beautiful course, and support such a worthy project.
There are plenty of prizes for the golf play, as well as raffle prizes. One local supporter has offered $1000 to the Auxiliary for a hole in one on the 17th hole, and he will pay up to three of these!
There have been a few holes in one on the course recently, so we are optimistic that our fundraising will be boosted by these. The players also win a prize - and the gratitude of the Auxiliary.
The Hospital has recently been able to purchase another cardiac monitor, courtesy of the Auxiliary and Outridges IGA; and an Ophthalmic Slit Lamp.
There was great feedback from last year’s event, a fun day for everyone.
