Raising money and having fun

Enjoying the day for a good cause.

By Daryl Davidson

On Tuesday, 28 November, International Greenkeepers held the first Two Ball One Stick Challenge at Cammeray Golf Club in Sydney to raise awareness for men’s health while also raising money to donate to Movember.

This was a very unique day as each player was only allowed to bring one club to play the entire 18 holes in a two-ball Ambrose event.

After a few tough years mentally and physically for everyone in the turf industry, it was great to get together and have a laugh.

Huge thanks to all the sponsors of the day who made it possible for everyone to play for free and enjoy a great lunch with a couple of beverages.

The raffle raised $1000 which was donated to Movember. We also had a lucky door prize where one player was given blue balls instead of white golf balls, the winner won an awesome Go Karting experience.

Special mention to James Thomas who got a hole in one on the 6th hole and also won the day with his partner Stephen Foster shooting 51 off the stick. Sarah Mayes and Gregory Donachie took out the Bradman Award shooting 72.

We are looking forward to running the event next year, if you would like get involved please do not hesitate to contact International Greenkeepers at internationalgreenkeepersfh@gmail.com
